Out of the Blue: A Novel, by Sophie Cameron


When otherworldly beings start falling from the sky, it seems like the end of days are near―but for one girl, it’s just the beginning of an adventure that will change her life.







Jaya's life has completely fallen apart. Her mother is dead, her dad is on an obsessive wild goose chase, and mysterious winged beings are falling from the sky. For the past nine months, none of them have survived the plummet to Earth, but when a female being lands near Jaya―and is still alive―she doesn’t call the authorities. She hides the being and tries to nurse her back to health.

Set against the backdrop of a society trying to come to grips with the possibility of a world beyond, Out of the Blue is the story of how one unexpected turn of events can put you on a path toward healing.





"Touches of humor... Expert pacing... A strong infusion of magic and wonder distinguish this debut novel." -Kirkus, Starred Review

"[A] smart balance of realism and fantasy with well-rounded characters." - School Library Journal, Starred Review

"An explanation for the Beings and the falling is never given, an ambiguity that allows readers to focus less on the fantastical details and more on the impact of loss and the uncertainty it leaves behind." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This artful, thought-provoking novel is perfect for philosophical teens." -Booklist

"Equal parts humorous fish-out-of-water story and poignant coming-of-age tale... Jaya is a vividly sketched, relatable character whose brave decisions encourage readers to embrace life and be true to themselves." -Publishers Weekly
