Aarti & the Blue Gods

Jasbinder Bilan

September 2 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Aarti has lived on the island with Aunt for as long as she can remember.

Like the weather, Aunt rules her world with rare warmth. Aarti’s only comforts are a book of Indian myths full of blue gods, a fox’s friendship, and a toy rabbit she finds in a locked room.

Then, she learns Aunt has been feeding her lies. Fate intervenes when a half-drowned boy washes up on the beach. With his help, Aarti hopes to remember who she really is … and perhaps find a way home.

* A mesmerising third novel from Costa-winning and Waterstones- shortlisted Jasbinder Bilan, one of the most exciting writers of middle-grade fiction.

* Themes of identity, faith and belonging with a stunning twist in an evocative and remote island setting.
