Blue by Lou Aronica

Copy provided for review through Virtual Book Tours.

This book was and yet was not what I thought it would be.

It was a little slow to start, for me at least.  It's a story told from different points of view, which is fine, except that one of the points of view never quite made sense to me.  I think that was at least partially intentional, but I wish it had been a little more developed.

This book is sad.  Just to warn you.  And yet, it's not.

Weaving together a father, a daughter, and a queen, the three main storylines become a beautiful tapestry of love and loss and, ultimately, hope.

I'd call this YA, for older teens, but also great for adults.  Especially anyone who's ever created an imaginary world.  :)

After all, what would you do if you found that world was real?  And would anyone believe you if you told them?

Definitely recommended!!

Stop by tomorrow for a guest post from the author!
