Last Bus to Everland

by Sophie Cameron

Sophie Cameron’s gorgeous follow up to her acclaimed debut Out of the Blue, introduces Everland: an addictive magical place where you do you.

Brody Fair has had enough of real life. Enough of the bullies on his block, of being second best to his genius brother, and of not fitting in at school or at home. Until he meets Nico. Colourful, confident and flamboyant, Nico takes Brody to Everland, a diverse magical place. A place where he can be himself, where there are no rules, time doesn’t pass, and the party never ends. You could lose yourself there forever…


Brody is a protagonist worth caring about; his insecurities and struggles are genuine and sympathetic, as is his temptation to run away and never look back. With empathy, Cameron creates a cast in which every character is prone to being misjudged and has depth beyond their face value. She seamlessly weaves the two worlds together, creating a story that is deeply emotional and evocative.”
