Synopsis

The perfect coming-of-age summer romance by the most spectacularly funny and original debut UKYA voice.



My name is Ellie. Ellie Pillai . . . And I suppose I am a little bit weird, but then, aren't we all, just a little bit?



Most days, Ellie Pillai is somewhere between invisible, and not very cool - and usually she's okay with that. But suddenly, Ellie feels different. Maybe it's the new boy at school who makes her brain explode into rainbows every time she sees him (and also happens to be going out with her best friend), or maybe it's her new drama teacher, the one who seems to have noticed she exists. Suddenly, her misfit style, her skin colour, her songwriting and all that getting lost in the music in her head seem to be okay too. Because maybe standing out isn't a bad thing after all.



'I adored this.' Simon James Green, author of Alex in Wonderland

'A hilarious and heart-warming story.' Aisha Bushby, author of A Pocketful of Stars

Christine Pillainayagam is a writer and retail strategist, who lives in North London with her young family and a collection of records, CD's and minidiscs (remember those?). A mild obsession with The Beatles and the desire to write a story that reflected her own experiences growing up as a first-generation immigrant, led her to put that love of music and words into a book. Ellie Pillai Is Brown is her debut novel. A singer and songwriter, she also writes a blog: thelittlebrownbook.co.uk
