Indigo Blue

Indie’s mum loves the colour blue. It’s the colour of her favourite things – bluebirds, bluebells, the sky. So much so that she named her children Indigo and Misty – shades of blue: special, magical colours. Indie loves her mum. But blue isn’t always a happy colour – and there’s a lot of sad stuff in Mum’s life. And now, all of a sudden, she wants them to run away from their lovely house and leave Max – Mum’s fella – behind. Indie doesn’t know why. Or where they’re going. Or how to tell her friends. In their dingy new flat, with no heating and only biscuits to eat, Indie slowly realises that Mum’s got a secret; a reason she really needed to get away. Indie mustn’t let her go near Max again, or something terrible will happen… A powerful, moving book about love, family, domestic violence – and what it feels like to get the blues.
