Where Bluebirds Fly

By Wendy Storer

Young adult, Children's, Environment & nature | Paperback, eBook


Ruby would rather not think about the past, and she definitely won't talk about it. She clings instead to her collection of rocks and stones which remind her of Nanna, her garden, and happier times. When problems at home become too big to hide from, Ruby throws one of her rocks through a shop window and is badly injured by broken glass. In hospital, everyone wants her to answer questions and explain herself, but all Ruby wants is for them to leave her alone. When she still refuses to speak, she is sent to live in High Fell Hall, a residential school where she is supposed to get help. But Ruby is not the only girl with problems at High Fell, and there’s this one girl – Pearl – who has bigger problems than most. An unlikely friendship develops, and Ruby is forced to remember the very thing she was trying to forget. "Where Bluebirds Fly" is a moving story about making friends with your enemy, dumping your past, and daring to hope.

Wendy Storer writes fiction for children and young adults, inspired by real life. She is interested in the human drama, the stories which tug at the heart strings and the amazing resilience of people who battle through desperate situations to come out the other side, happier. She hopes her stories will leave readers with a sense of hope and expectation that life can get better, even when the chances look slim. In the past she has worked with both children and adults as a teacher, hypnotherapist and creative writing therapist, as well as many ‘just passing through’ kind of jobs while she found her feet. But nothing ever really put a smile on her face like writing. As well as writing books, Wendy teaches creative writing to adults and children in Cumbria, and is the proud owner of Magic Beans, (a small literary consultancy in the Lake District!) She is available for school visits and workshops with both adults and children. Her novel, Bring Me Sunshine, was runner up in the Mslexia Children’s Novel Competition 2012/13.
