The Colour of the Sun Synopsis

The day is long, the world is wide, you're young and free. One hot summer morning, Davie steps boldly out of his front door. The world he enters is very familiar - the little Tyneside town that has always been his home - but as the day passes, it becomes ever more mysterious. A boy has been killed, and Davie thinks he might know who is responsible. He turns away from the gossip and excitement and sets off roaming towards the sunlit hills above the town. As the day goes on, the real and the imaginary start to merge, and Davie knows that neither he nor his world will ever be the same again.

 

The Colour of the Sun Press Reviews

Beautiful, dream-like story about a boy, a crime, a feud, and growing up in a small town. It's warm and loving and manages to be both intimate and expansive. A beautiful, beautiful read.  The Bookbag
