Product description

About the Author

Amy Harmon is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of ten novels. Her books are now being published in 13 languages around the globe.

She knew at an early age that writing was something she wanted to do, and divided her time between writing songs and stories as she grew. Having grown up in the middle of wheat fields without a television, with only her books and her siblings to entertain her, she developed a strong sense of what made a good story.

Some books are slow and nuanced and they creep up on you as you read. A Different Blue is one of those books. It has a detailed plot and two extremely gripping main characters, but it's subtle in the way it slowly gets under your skin and changes the way you think as you read. Amy Harmon is one of those magically authors that write books you want to savor and roll around in. If you love teacher/student books, this will be a unique addition to your read pile.

Blue has not had an easy life. Her mom abandoned her when she was only two, leaving her to be raised by a drifter, who also leaves mysteriously when she is ten and is later found dead. Then she is raised by his sister who is not very maternal. At nineteen she is used to being abandoned and doesn't think she deserves any better. Blue is not a very likeable character as the book begins. She has a massive chip on her shoulder and is abrasive and hard to take.

Her senior year history teacher is young, attractive, confident and British. This is his first year teaching in America and the minute Blue walks through his classroom door he knows she is going to be trouble. Wilson sees something in Blue as that tells him there is much more to her than meets the surface. When she needs someone in her corner, he becomes her champion and support.

Wilson and Blue develop a lasting friendship (note that their relationship really takes off and evolves after she has graduated) and as Blue slowly works through the pain of not knowing her actual name or anything much about her past she begins to develop a confidence that adds to the strength she already has. She also develops feelings for Wilson that go beyond friendship, but she doesn't think a woman like her deserves an amazing man like him.

I loved this book, its beautiful, heartbreak and well written. I initially avoided it when I saw the main character was still I school however it wasn't a teenage school romance like I expected. I would of given it 5 stars if the author hadn't kept attempting to use British words. Being British made certain parts super cringey to read, especially when the British words were used incorrectly and way too much. And FYI- being called bird isn't a compliment, it's something fat middle age builders shout at young girls when they're on scaffolding with their ass cracks hanging out.

This was a lovely story, beautifully written. It was recommended to me as a forbidden love/teacher and student love story but this is so much better than a tale of teenage crush and lust. Recommended.

I enjoyed this book, but did fell that it was one that a person should read for themselves to make up their own minds. There was a good story and I found it to be a good read

If I could give this book a million stars I would...this book was totally AMAZEBALLS, I absolutely loved it, adored it and fell in love with it. It had me hook, line and sinker from the very beginning and I devoured it in one sitting!

"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".

The writing had me gripped, was totally emotional all the way through and the connection I felt towards the characters was as if I was there with them. I adored Blue and Wilson..I was rooting for them from the start..even though it was student/teacher after graduation I was come on Wilson!!!!!

This book starts with an outline into Blue's history, she is half Native American and half American..her mum took her on a road trip when she was 2 to get away from it all and ended up dumping her in another Native American's truck..she was subsequently murdered 2 days later..Jimmy Echohawk kept the child and named her Blue..

Review (4.75 Stars)

This book started a bit like a crime show episode with : a glimpse of someone's life, then their death followed by small scene of a investigation before finally zooming to a other persons seemingly unconnected (although we all know there has to be some connection) life.

Once passed the crime show like prologue, we follow a girl called Blue in her last year of high school. I enjoyed the way that from the start we get to see the mask Blue has created for herself and it was interesting though the school year to see the two different sides of Blue. Her 'slutty' shameless and outgoing mask when she is in school, and her more quite and lost personality when she is at home. This first half of the book while Blue is still in school, shows how much teacher's can impact their students lives. It highlighted the power of other people believing in you, and the impact that can have on the views you have of yourself as well as the ways in which you view the world and your place in it.

The second part of the book we follow Blue as she tries to find out more about her past and her birth family. However, I felt as though the theme of this half of the book was more about realizing that your blood family isn't the only family you can have, but rather you can create you own family from those who have your back, care and love you.

This is such a powerful story of a broken, forgotten girl (who's very good at playing the role she created to hide this), who is on a quest to find herself and a teacher determined to see her for who she is and help her discover her true self, and find her place in the world. We also get a great side theme of romance, it is messy at some points and beautiful at other points.
