Book Review: ‘The Blue Between’ by Patricia Little

Sixteen-year-old Heather Lucas is playing soccer one day when she’s hit by lightning, leaving her with a weird scar on her hand. The girl who she clashed with when she got struck dies. Thus Heather becomes the odd one at school, the one everyone whispers about.

To make matters worse, her mom suddenly abandons her, and she experiences blackout moments that she can’t explain. Her dad doesn’t believe her and she’s forced to see a psychiatrist. Also, a new boy at school, Alex, has taken a keen interest on her — an interest that goes beyond the fact that she’s a pretty girl. Who is he, and why is he so interested in her scar and a place called Alanar — a make-believe place Heather’s mother used to talk about?

As Heather becomes more in control of her blackout moments, she taps into ‘the blue between,’ a place outside of space and time, only to discover shocking realities about her mom and her own origins. The stakes are high, and her mom isn’t the only innocent being she must save from the void…

I thoroughly enjoyed this well-written, entertaining story for young adults. It has a strong, brave, sympathetic heroine, an interesting array of secondary characters, mystery, action and adventure. The story moves at a pretty quick pace, propelled by high-tension scenes and realistic dialogue.

The author keeps the mystery alive throughout, offering increasing bits of information as the plot progresses until the action-packed climax and satisfying ending that can only be the beginning of an exciting new series. I also enjoyed the author’s original world-building.

If you’re a fan of YA fantasy and the paranormal, but are tired of werewolves and vampires, I recommend you pick this one up.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
