Read an exclusive interview for Waterstones with Patrice Lawrence where  the author talks about life for children in care, her love of Hackney and how, when it comes to writers of colour, the publishing industry still has a long way to go.

Shortisted for the YA Book Prize 2018

The breathtaking second book from the author of Orangeboy, winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize for Older Readers and shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and the YA Book Prize. 

Seventeen-year-old Indigo has had a tough start in life, having grown up in the care system after her dad killed her mum. Bailey, also seventeen, lives with his parents in Hackney and spends all his time playing guitar or tending to his luscious ginger afro. 

When Indigo and Bailey meet at sixth form, serious sparks fly. But when Bailey becomes the target of a homeless man who seems to know more about Indigo than is normal, Bailey is forced to make a choice he should never have to make. 

A life-affirming story about falling in love and everyone's need to belong.

MEDIA REVIEWS

If anything, Lawrence's second book surpasses her first with its deft characterisation. - Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian

...another brilliant story that will suck you in and leave you looking at the world through different eyes. Lawrence deserves all the awards that were heaped on Orangeboy, and her latest book is every bit as good. - Crime Review

Think Jacqueline Wilson with swearing and lots of contemporary cultural references... a red-hot mystery - The Times

Lawrence's teenage friendly depictions of emotions will keep readers engaged. It won't stay on the shelf for long. - The School Librarian

Fresh and important... Patrice Lawrence is a hot name in publishing. CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK - Alex O'Connell, The Times

A tender and complex story of first love, family and belonging... Lawrence is a vibrant, accomplished storyteller... but what really sets her writing apart is her skill in getting to the raw heart of her characters. YA BOOK OF THE WEEK. - Fiona Noble, The Observer

A passionate love story with mystery at its core. CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK. - Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times

Oh, I loved this story. The plot hinges on the mystery surrounding Indigo's family and it's gradually revealed with genuine care and compassion by Lawrence... [She] is a storyteller, you know? I believed in her setting, I believed in her characters and I was absorbed by her plot. I don't know what more I could have asked for. - Jill Murphy, The Bookbag

“Loved this book.”

Orangeboy was a brilliant book, and although it lacks that first initial incredible hook, Indigo Donut is just as good. Patrice Lawrence is great at getting inside her characters' heads and creating interesting,... More
