If you’re in the market for a laugh out loud, rom-com with a charismatic main character with a passion for music, Christine Pillainayagam’s brilliantly funny debut, Ellie Pillai is Brown, is the book for you. The perfect summer read, Ellie Pillai is Brown will leave you with a smile on your face and your heart well and truly happy. To celebrate the release of this fantastic new YA rom-com, we have five copies signed by Christine herself to give away!
My name is Ellie. Ellie Pillai . . . And I suppose I am a little bit weird, but then, aren’t we all, just a little bit?
Most days, Ellie Pillai is somewhere between invisible, and not very cool – and usually she’s okay with that. But suddenly, Ellie feels different. Maybe it’s the new boy at school who makes her brain explode into rainbows every time she sees him (and also happens to be going out with her best friend), or maybe it’s her new drama teacher, the one who seems to have noticed she exists. Suddenly, her misfit style, her skin colour, her songwriting and all that getting lost in the music in her head seem to be okay too. Because maybe standing out isn’t a bad thing after all.
