Author: Amy Harmon
Released: March 29, 2013
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 with 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.
A Different Blue is the 3rd Amy Harmon book I read in a weeks’ time and it was unsurprisingly another fabulous story. Once again I sacrificed sleep because reading this book was so much better than sleeping.
I loved everything about this book from the characters to the story line to the beautiful message. I wondered where this story might go as the summary gives the impression of a questionable relationship between Blue and her British teacher Wilson. No need to have been concerned as I found nothing inappropriate about their relationship in fact I found myself rooting for this mismatched pair.
A Different Blue has a lot of depth to it. While there is romance this book is so much more than a typical love story. The ultimate outcome might be predictable but the path to getting there is anything but. This is a page turner that I couldn’t put down and will add to my to reread shelf.
As far as content I found nothing offensive in this book. There is some language and some implied sexual content but nothing describe in detail. I wouldn’t recommend it to my teenager yet because at 14 I don’t think she’s quite old enough to appreciate this book but in a few years I will suggest she read it.
Three Amy Harmon books in 1 week all of which were easily 5 star reads solidifies Amy Harmon as one of my favorite authors. If you have not read anything by her yet you must give her books a try. I’m in awe of how beautifully done all her books have been.
Rating: 5 Stars – I Loved It!
Content: mild language, implied sexual content but nothing graphic or described you just know it happens.
