Smashing down to earth at extraordinary speeds, wings bent, faces contorted, not a single one has survived. Hysteria mounting with every Being that drops, Jaya's father uproots the family to Edinburgh intent on catching one alive. But Jaya can't stand this obsession and, struggling to make sense of her mother's sudden death and her own role on that fateful day, she's determined to stay out of it. When her best friend disappears and her father's mania spirals, things hit rock bottom and it's at that moment something extraordinary happens: an angel lands right at Jaya's feet, and it's alive. Finally she is forced to acknowledge just how significant these celestial beings are. Set against the backdrop of the Edinburgh festival, Out of the Blue tackles questions of grief and guilt and fear over who we really are. But it's also about love and acceptance and finding your place in this world as angels drop out of another." -- Provided by publisher."@en ;
