Description

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