If you are looking for some inspiration on what to read next, then look no further than this year’s Indie Book Awards. There are four categories to choose from - Fiction, Non-Fiction, Children’s Fiction and Picture Book - so there’s something for everyone. Titles on the shortlist, all chosen by independent booksellers, are paperbacks and are all great summer reads whether you are reading at home or on the beach or somewhere further afield.
His name is David. He's the boy with flowers in his hair and he's my best friend... David is the boy with flowers in his hair. He's sweet and gentle, just like his petals. But when David's flowers begin to fall - a single petal at first, then every last blossom - his best friend never leaves his side. And through kindness and creativity, he even finds a way to give David his colour back... Beautifully illustrated and sensitively told, this story is about being there for someone when they are at their most vulnerable, and brings to life a pure and poignant friendship that children will never forget.
