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
