Leopold Blue - new book

ID: 1677167

A tense and moving South African coming-of-age story about family, friendship and first romance Meg Bergman is fifteen and fed up. She lives in a tiny town in rural 1990s South Africa - a hot-bed of traditionalism, racial tension and (in Meg's eyes) ordinariness. Meg has no friends either, due largely to what the community sees as her mother's interfering attempts to educate farm workers about AIDS. But one day Xanthe arrives - cool, urban, feisty Xanthe, who for some unknown reason seems to want to hang out with Meg. Xanthe arrives into Meg's life like a hurricane, offering her a look at a teenage life she never knew existed. But cracks quickly begin to show in their friendship when Meg's childhood friend Simon returns from his gap year travels. LEOPOLD BLUE is an emotionally taut and beautifully written story from a debut author with a mesmerising voice. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Rosie Rowell was born and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. In 2003 she left for London on a short working holiday with a backpack and a pair of hiking boots. Eleven years later she has lost the backpack but gained a husband and three small children. The hiking boots remain unused. Rosie is currently doing an MA in Creative & Life Writing at Goldsmiths University of London, and LEOPOLD BLUE is her first novel. REVIEWS A thought-provoking coming-of-age story. Debut author Rosie Rowell has created some complex and engaging characters, and Meg's adolescent trials and tribulations are set against an intriguing portrait of a rapidly changing nation.', Booktrust Children's & Young Adult Fiction Children's & Young Adult Fiction eBook, Hot Key Books

Meet the new R. Rowell on the block – a wonderful voice you’ll want to hear loads more from. (Nope, this isn’t the author of Fangirl, but she’s found a big fan in us.) Meg Bergman is fifteen and fed up. Maybe you know that feeling? The thing is, she has quite a lot to be fed up about. She lives in the middle of nowhere: a tiny rural village in 1990s South Africa. Plus, she has no friends, because her meddling mum keeps banging on about AIDS. (All the locals wish she’d just shut up.) Then, like a breath of fresh air – well, more of a hurricane – Xanthe shows up. Cool, urban, feisty Xanthe, who wants to hang out with Meg. Suddenly Meg is exploring a teenage life she never even knew existed. Until her childhood friend, Simon, returns to town and things start to go wrong… Winner of the Branford Boase Award for debut authors A brilliantly evocative South African coming-of-age tale Fascinating look at a troubled nation in a time of change Wonderful writing which perfectly captures Meg’s voice “A work with real intelligence and quiet power.” Cuckoo Review “Meg’s adolescent trials and tribulations are set against an intriguing portrait of a rapidly changing nation.” Booktrust Books
