Purple The Book

After a purple storm sweeps around Planet Earth, stealing millions of people, four teenagers struggle to make it alone in London.

Drawn together by a series of bizarre coincidences, Ellie, Midge, Scott and Marty soon find themselves entangled with a bunch of interfering pensioners. Among the cast of players are flamboyant hairdresser Mr Rupert, Pearl the loud-mouthed tea lady, and June, a psychic, who travels the world on her motorbike.

As the tranquillizing effects of the Purple diminish, greed and the lust for power take hold. Penny Treasure, leader of the Decision Makers Council, dreams up an idea that could destroy the world forever.

In a desperate hunt to find the missing, clues are pieced together and some shocking secrets come tumbling out of the closet.

A great first book, I read it on holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the story line and the way it was written. A great basic idea with different levels of engagement running through it, lots of social comment for younger readers to think about! I will certainly be telling my nephews and neices about it. Congratulations!

This is one of the most original stories I’ve read. I loved the quirky characters that brought the story to life. Purple keeps the reader on their toes with twists and turns to the plot. A thoroughly entertaining read, ideal for teenagers their parents and their parents parents!
