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.
This story is beautifully written, highly emotional, and completely captivating. I loved it so much. The plot is unique and the story captured my attention from the very first page. I love reading stories that draw me in and don’t let go like this one did. It’s truly mesmerizing.
The characters are rich with emotions and I thought both Blue & Wilson were interesting characters. I really enjoyed getting to know them. Blue especially. She’s a strong young woman and her journey was a rough one at times. Wilson was so charming. I was rooting for him from the beginning. Even though he had a girlfriend at the start of this book I knew he belonged with Blue.
This story covers a lot of ground or time should I say. It’s a bit lengthy, but I didn’t find myself getting bored with it. In fact, I kept turning page after page to see what would happen next. I truly enjoyed the flow of this story.
The romance scenes are basically non-existent. I was okay with that because the storyline itself is very powerful and sex scenes weren’t really necessary. There are a few romance moments which are sweet though. 🙂
A Different Blue is definitely one of my favorite reads so far this year. I’ve read one other novel by Amy Harmon and I loved it too. I can honestly Ms Harmon nailed it with this one.
