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 a fantastic piece of work by Amy Harmon. It is a story of transformation, friendship and love. Blue Echohawk is the female lead. This story touches on some topics that could hit home and be quite sensitive for some. Such as abandonment, teen pregnancy and adoption. Amy portrays these situations in a great light that offers learning from the experience.

I really appreciated that this was not a straight romance story. While there is a romantic storyline it is not the focus of the book. The focus is on Blue and her journey through her late young adult life. We meet a senior in high school who hates most parts of her life and puts up a shield of indifference to keep people out. Blue is faced with a new teacher who is young and leads his class in a way that allows him to get to know his students, through this relationship we learn more about Blue and her childhood. Blue has faced challenges in her young life that shaped who she is.

Now, after growing through her interactions with Mr. Wilson and dealing with some fairly difficult decisions Blue will embark on the biggest journey of her young life. She will try to learn who she really is and where she came from. I love every moment of the journey told in this book. I cried and I laughed. Amy never fails to deliver with any book she writes. I look forward to eventually having read all her works.

I give 5 stars to A Different Blue and would pair it with a 501 Blue cocktail
