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 he has just arrived in town; and Luka doesn’t remember how he came there, but has superhuman strength and is invisible.

* A tale of courage, adventure and friendship that thwarts 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.
