This week I’m jumping back to 2013. KC from Pretty Words Book Blog and I buddy read A Different Blue together. This was our first taste of Ms. Harmon’s writing and ever since then we’ve made it a point to read whichever book is released by her. I’ve read 5 out of the 7 books she’s written. The Purgatory series (young adult genre) is waiting on my kindle for me.
On May 17, 2013, I read A Different Blue by Amy Harmon. My love of Ms. Harmon’s writing began with this book.

**5 scrummy stars** Scrummy is British for delicious. Or that you ‘fancy’ it.
The book started out slow for me and had it not been for all my friends who gave it 4 & 5 stars I would have probably given up. Chapter 8 is where the book really started picking up and holding my attention.
Mr. Wilson : “You all have a story. It’s been written up to this point, to this very second. And I want to know that story. I want to know YOUR history.”
Blue : “Once upon a time there was a little blackbird, pushed from the nest, unwanted. Discarded. Then a Hawk found her and swooped her up and carried her away, giving her a home in his nest, teaching her to fly. But one day the Hawk didn’t come home, and the little bird was along again, unwanted. She wanted to fly away.”
Blue : “God? I’m ugly inside. So, I’m asking you now. Can you take it away? Can you take away the ugliness?”
Mr. Wilson : “Did I ever tell you how beautiful I think you are? You’re almost there. I will help you. Hold on to me. It’s going to be all right.”
