When angels start falling from the sky, it seems like the world is ending. For most people it doesn't. But for Jaya the world ended when her mum died, two weeks before the first angel fell. Smashing down to Earth at extraordinary speeds, wings bent, faces contorted, not a single one has survived and, as the world goes angel crazy, Jaya's father uproots the family to Edinburgh, intent on catching one alive. But Jaya can't stand his obsession and, struggling to make sense of her mum's sudden death and her own role on that fateful day, she's determined to stay out of it. Then something amazing happens: an angel lands right at Jaya's feet, and it's alive. Set against the backdrop of the Edinburgh festival, Sophie Cameron's '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
