Sita Brahmachari's third novel for Macmillan, KITE SPIRIT, is published on May 9th.
During the summer of her GCSEs Kite's world falls apart when her best friend, Dawn, kills herself. Kite is usually light as air on her trapeze, but now everything is leaden and grey. To recover, her father takes her to the Lake District where the outstanding natural beauty seems to mock her as she struggles with conflicting emotions and new surroundings. Kite would do anything to speak to Dawn just once more, to understand one thing - WHY? How will she ever understand, ever recover, ever fly again?
A potent novel about the beauty of nature, the power of roots and the importance of speaking out.
