An unmissablenew novel from the author of Dizzy,about family, friends and what it feels like to get the blues.
Indigo's mum has lots of favourite things (most of them blue) - bluebirds, bluebells, sky and, of course, her daughters, Indigo and baby Misti. But Indigo definitely doesn't like the mysterious blue bruises that suddenly appear on her mum's face. Or when Mum takes Indigo and Misti to a new house, far from home, with mildew and no electricity. Suddenly, life doesn't seem so rosy any more. Will things ever be the same again?Full of observations about family life, optimism and new beginnings, Cathy Cassidy's warm, tender follow-up to Dizzy shows us that sometimes, clouds do, indeed, have a silver lining.

I couldn't put it down' - Hannah, aged 13
