Coming March 29th - A New YA Novel by Amy Harmon

A Different Blue is an amazing new novel by Amy Harmon, a beautiful and very talented author. I'm a total fan and just adore her writing style.

About the book

Blue Echohawk doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know her real name or when she was born. Abandoned at two and raised by a drifter, she didn't attend school until she was ten years old. At nineteen, when most kids her age are attending college or moving on in life, she is just a senior in high school. With no mother, no father, no faith, and no future, Blue Echohawk is a difficult student, to say the least. Tough, hard and overtly sexy, she is the complete opposite of the young British teacher who decides he is up for the challenge, and takes the troublemaker under his wing.

This is the story of a nobody who becomes somebody. It is the story of an unlikely friendship, where hope fosters healing and redemption becomes love. But falling in love can be hard when you don't know who you are. Falling in love with someone who knows exactly who they are and exactly why they can't love you back might be impossible.
 
This story pulled my emotions in so many different directions, my daughter walked in while I was reading it and thought I was losing it. Throughout the story my heart just went out to Blue and I completely fell in love with Wilson, except for the times during the last quarter of the book when he was being an idiot. But I loved him then, too, and I experienced Tom Hanks moments from Castaway where I found myself yelling, "Wilson! Wilson, come back!" Oh, my heck, the story is so emotion-driven, I couldn't think of anything else and I read it in a day! And the mystery of Blue and her past keeps you locked in until the very end.
A Different Blue and Amy's other novel, Running Barefoot are sure to be two of your favorite books.
