A Different Blue (Amy Harmon)

IMG_0349

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.

Once upon a time, I picked up A Different Blue, the last of Amy’s books that I hadn’t read yet and surprise, surprise…adored it. Gobbled it up.

Amy Harmon doesn’t write bad books, y’all. I bet she never does either. And the best thing about her books is they’re all so diverse and the messages they all provide is so heartwarming.

My most favorite thing about Amy is she doesn’t have to have a book chalk full of romance and smut. Better put as: S E X. Amy doesn’t need that detail strung out chapter after chapter. She diligently writes her stories with beautiful words that in turn evokes beautiful feelings. That, to me, is a million times better than full blown romance and sex scene after sex scene.

The characters in A Different Blue were probably my favorite ones from Amy Harmon to date. Wilson and Blue form such a dynamic bond from the start that I instantly latched onto. And Blue herself was a strong and dominate character. A woman who was growing but wasn’t afraid of the growth she would undergo.

So, for those who are searching and for those who want to be found or for those who are trying to understand…read this book. Read. This. Book.
