Milly’s brother is missing and presumed dead inAfghanistan, but she refuses to give up faith, believing he is still alive.When she turns seventeen in the summer, she begins to write a journal and makesthree wishes in the hope that they will come true by her eighteenth birthday:get her brother Neel safely home, get into Cambridge University and get aboyfriend. But life is anything but predictable. Of Indian origin, Milly liveswith her family in Cambridge. She is at Sixth Form. Pressure mounts as her Cambridgeapplication looms large and the summer triggers misfortunes and tensions.Milly’s father loses his job, her mother falls ill and her younger brother isbullied at school. Milly desperately needs a strong shoulder but is reluctantto let Paris, a bumbling fellow Sixth Former, into her world. He isn’tboyfriend material and it doesn’t look promising with Dominic, Shaw or Jason,either. How are her three wishes going to come true? Milly then begins tosuffer recurring nightmares about a captive British soldier in Afghanistan andrecords her disturbing dreams in her journal. Could they have anything to dowith her brother Neel? Despite the setbacks over the year, there’s one thingthat stays just the same until the next summer – her hope.

Summer ofBlue is the second novel from author Saumya Balsari. It is set among the spires of Cambridge, sunny Mumbai and the shadows of war-tornAfghanistan and is an off-beat narrative of love, loss and longing – a story ofteenage angst and the pressures of modern life.

‘Summer isn’t a season, it’s a feeling.’

An early version of the book received a commendationfrom the Yeovil Literary Prize, 2009.
