Out of the BlueBook - 2018
"Ten days after Jaya Mackenzies mum dies, angels start falling from the sky. Smashing down to earth at extraordinary speeds, wings bent, faces contorted, not a single one has survived. Hysteria mounting with every Being that drops, Jayas father uproots the family to Edinburgh intent on catching one alive. But Jaya cant stand this obsession and, struggling to make sense of her mothers sudden death and her own role on that fateful day, shes determined to stay out of it. When her best friend disappears and her fathers mania spirals, things hit rock bottom and its at that moment something extraordinary happens: an angel lands right at Jayas feet, and its alive. Finally she is forced to acknowledge just how significant these celestial beings are. Set against the backdrop of the Edinburgh festival, Out of the Blue tackles questions of grief and guilt and fear over who we really are. But it's also about love and acceptance and finding your place in this world as angels drop out of another." -- Provided by publisher.
