Our September Book of the Month

Aarti & the Blue Gods by Jasbinder Bilan

“My September Book of the Month for children aged 11 and over is Aarti & the Blue Gods by Jasbinder Bilan. Aarti has lived on the island with her Aunt for as long as she can remember. Like the weather, Aunt rules her world with rare warmth. Aarti’s only comforts are a book of Indian myths full of blue gods and a fox’s friendship. Then she finds clues to a former life such as a toy rabbit in a locked room, and learns her Aunt has been feeding her lies… Will Aarti remember who she really is, and perhaps find a way back home…

This is the third novel from Costa award-winning and Waterstones shortlisted Jasbinder Bilan. Just like Asha & the Spirit Bird, Bilan creates a beautiful world and story that we are immersed in and mesmerised by. She is fast establishing herself as one of the most exciting writers of middle-grade fiction. Aarti & the Blue Gods touches on tough topics such as identity, faith and belonging, in a mature and sensitive way that will help children empathise and develop understanding.”
