In an eerie futuristic world, society has figured out a way to bring people back from the dead, provided they have the right blood type. However the ‘Returned’ as they are officially known look different – with their white hair, translucent skin and pale eyes. They are alienated and despised by much of society. At school, the ‘pales’ are bullied, beaten up and ostracized. So what happens when one of the bullies becomes a ‘pale’ himself?  

This is a gripping and hard-hitting fantasy, hugely accessible and with much to say about the way we treat others.
