THE STORY OF HOW BLU MET LUKA AND WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

 

This is the story of a girl called Blu and her four friends: Abel, Tilly, Cameron and Luka.

Abel has always been Blu’s best friend; Tilly lives in another city but is constantly video calling her; Cameron is American and doesn’t speak a word of Italian; and Luka comes from a far-off land, has superhuman strength and is invisible.

* A captivating, contemporary tale with a poetic, fairy-tale feel.

* A tale of courage and adventure, friendship and love that takes on challenges and overcomes the fear of the other.

Elements of adventure, fantasy and coming-of-age writing with echoes of the big screen: The Shape of Water, Stranger Things, E.T. and Stand by Me.
