Blue by Sue-Ellen Pashley

What would you do to protect your family?

17-year-old Penn just wants a real life. One where he’s not forced to lie and steal for his abusive stepfather Gep. One where he and his twin brother, Jimmy, are free from Gep’s dark magic.

When they move to yet another town to steal magical artefacts for Gep, Penn is hopeful that things might be different this time. Especially when he finds himself attracted to a girl in his class, Selti.

But when Jimmy starts to weaken, fading like their mum did before she died, Penn knows he’ll do anything to save him. Even if that means betraying Selti… or giving in to his own powers.

A modern retelling of Pinocchio with an urban fantasy twist.
