Blue by Lou Aronica
Loved this book!
Chris Astor is a divorced dad who loves his daughter passionately but feels like he is losing her since the divorce.
Becky Astor is a 14 year old girl who loves her parents but can’t figure out what her dad wants from her. She is also experiencing some health issues that remind her of the cancer she had as a young girl and she is scared!
Miea is the queen of Tamarisk the imaginary world created by Becky and Chris to help Becky through her cancer. Tamarisk is in danger of becoming extinct.
These 3 people have to come together in order to help Becky face the toughest challenge of her young life and to save Tamarisk.
This book probably fits into the fantasy genre. I don’t usually enjoy this type of book but I loved this one. Lou Aronica poignantly shows the emotions of a father fighting for his daughter, a young girl who desperately wants to live and a queen who wishes to save her kingdom. I had a hard time putting this one down!
Quick read – great for the beach J
