Indigo Donut

Indigo Donut

The breathtaking second book from the author of Orangeboy, shortlisted for the Costa Book Award 2016.

Bailey is 17, mixed race, lives with his mum and dad in Hackney and spends all his time playing guitar or tending to his luscious ginger afro.

Indigo is 17 and newly returned to London, having grown up in the care system after being found by her mum’s dead body as a toddler. All Indigo wants is to know who she really is.

When Bailey and Indigo meet at sixth form, 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.

If anything, Lawrence's second book surpasses her first with its deft characterisation.
Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian
...another brilliant story that will suck you in and leave you looking at the world through different eyes. Lawrence deserves all the awards that were heaped on Orangeboy, and her latest book is every bit as good.
Crime Review
Think Jacqueline Wilson with swearing and lots of contemporary cultural references... a red-hot mystery
The Times
Lawrence's teenage friendly depictions of emotions will keep readers engaged. It won't stay on the shelf for long.
