Teens long to find themselves in the novels they read and to understand where they fit inboth in their families and the broader world. THE OTHER SIDE OF BLUE depicts fifteen-year-old Cyan's journey to discover the truth of her father's death the year before, while vacationing on the Caribbean island the family visits every June. More importantly, it explores the sometimes-difficult path toward reconciliation with those with whom we are closest and our need to find our own path ahead. Ultimately, BLUE is about hope.
I'd enjoy hearing what you think about BLUE. Please write to me through my website www.valerieopatterson.com, on which I've posted a reader's guide along with photographs of Curaçao, where the book is set. Or write to me on Facebook. Thanks.
