Fly Me Home

That old dilemma (fitting in) gets a magical twist for a girl starting a new life in London… Leelu has made it to the Big Smoke, and she can’t for the life of her see what the big fuss is about. London is cold and grey. The neighbours are noisy, and there’s concrete all over the place. What a dump. Feeling lost and alone, she dreams of flying back to her real home – the place where her dad is, thousands of miles away. But that’s not going to happen, is it? Except that maybe it is. Because she keeps finding gifts outside her house; treasures that give her magical powers…

  • A moving portrait of a girl’s struggle to adapt to a new life
  • Truly magical writing that celebrates friendship and family
  • By the author of Boy in the Tower and Where Monsters Lie
  • Boy in the Tower was shortlisted for the Waterstones Prize
