Indigo Donut

By Patrice Lawrence

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

A love story interwoven with an edge-of-the-seat mystery. Two very different young people discover who loves them, and who they can love back.

The breathtaking second book from the author of Orangeboy, winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize for Older Readers, the YA Book Prize, the CrimeFest award, and shortlisted for the Costa Book Award .

Praise for Orangeboy:
"A truly brilliant book." Malorie Blackman

"Incredible book. Thank you Patrice Lawrence for such a fresh and riveting piece of fiction." Ben Bailey Smith (Doc Brown)

Seventeen-year-old Indigo has had a tough start in life, having grown up in the care system after her dad killed her mum. Bailey, also seventeen, lives with his parents in Hackney and spends all his time playing guitar or tending to his luscious ginger afro.

When Indigo and Bailey meet at sixth form, serious sparks fly. But when Bailey becomes the target of a homeless man who seems to know more about Indigo than is normal, Bailey is forced to make a choice he should never have to make.
A life-affirming story about falling in love and everyone's need to belong.

Fresh and important... Patrice Lawrence is a hot name in publishing. CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK — Alex O'Connell, The Times
A tender and complex story of first love, family and belonging... Lawrence is a vibrant, accomplished storyteller... but what really sets her writing apart is her skill in getting to the raw heart of her characters. YA BOOK OF THE WEEK. — Fiona Noble, The Observer
A passionate love story with mystery at its core. CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK. — Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times
Oh, I loved this story. The plot hinges on the mystery surrounding Indigo's family and it's gradually revealed with genuine care and compassion by Lawrence... [She] is a storyteller, you know?

Rules for Everyone

Georgia Amson-Bradshaw, David Broadbent
Contributors:
Georgia Amson-Bradshaw, David Broadbent

How can you be a good global citizen? By understanding the world we live in and how we can effect change. This book explores what rules are for, who makes the rules and how governments and power works in society. It helps children understand systems of democracy and how people have the ability to influence the rules of society. It features case studies on civil rights and activities to make campaign videos and organise a debate club. The consultant is Dr Synne Dyvik, Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Sussex University.The I'm a Global Citizen series explores the concept of 'Global Citizenship': recognising that the world we live in is unfair and unequal, but promoting individual and collective action to challenge and change this. Each book has information, fun activities, challenges, case studies and ideas for group and individual action presented with fun illustrations. The books promote the idea that we have power as individuals: each of us can change things, and each of us has choices about how we behave. They encourage children aged 8+ to counter ignorance and intolerance.
