Fly Me Home
Polly Ho-Yen

Ages: 7-11

Feeling lost and alone in a strange new city, Leelu wishes she could fly away back home – her real home where her dad is, thousands of miles away.

London is cold and grey and the neighbours are noisy and there’s concrete everywhere.

But Leelu is not alone; someone is leaving her gifts outside her house – wonders which give her curious magical powers.

Powers which might help her find her way home . . .

Fly Me Home is an incredibly moving portrait of one family’s struggle to adjust to life in a new country. Full of friendship, family and magic, this stunning novel by Polly Ho-Yen, author of Boy in the Tower (shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize and the Blue Peter Book Award) and Where Monsters Lie, is a must-read for 9-12 readers.
