BOOK of the MONTH – Out of The Blue by Sophie Cameron – December 2018

Our December Book of the Month is this debut novel from Sophie Cameron and is a wonderful, magical tale set against the backdrop of the bustling throng that is the Edinburgh Festival.

When angels start falling from the sky, it seems like the end of days are near – but for one girl, it’s just the beginning of an adventure that will change her life. Jaya’s life has completely fallen apart. Her mother is dead, her dad is on an obsessive wild goose chase, and mysterious winged beings are falling from the sky. For the past nine months, none of the them have survived the plummet to Earth, but when a female being lands near Jaya – and is still alive – she doesn’t call the authorities. She hides the being and tries to nurse her back to health.

This is a story of love and acceptance and finding your place in this world. And of how one unexpected turn of events can put you on a path toward healing. Modern day Scotland with a magical twist.

Some of the Novelties Book Club, at lunchtime on Wednesday 5 December, announced the December Book of the Month and it really is a wee cracker. A holiday must-read 🎁.
