A Bright Blue Miracle?

Do you need a Bright Blue Miracle?
A hero…well, really just a cute boy
A villain…ugh, my new stepsister
My life used to be totally normal-school, pedicures, ice-cream, love, hate, comedy, despair-and then a couple of surprises hit me that no one saw coming, especially not me.
Maybe a bright blue miracle was, just like Grammy said, exactly what I needed.

Seventeen-year-old Leigh Mason is not sure she’s ready to share her mom, her bedroom, and her little sisters with her new stepsister, Betsy. And she’s definitely not ready to share her best friend, who happens to be a boy! Coping with a blended family is not easy for either Leigh or Betsy, especially during their senior year in high school. Each step brings them nearer to a crisis that will either send them running in different directions or bind them firmly together (which, let’s face it, would take a miracle).

What do you think of your Bright Blue Miracle?
C: I liked this book a lot and one of the reasons why is because I somewhat had a step-family but not really (if that makes sense). Another reason was, it was realistic. It showed the hardship(s) of combining two families. It has a good hidden message (which I am not going to tell ;)).

M: This was a cute story. It made me laugh, it made me cry as I followed Leigh's struggles with herself, trying to accept her new step-family and her best friend's illness. The heartache of losing her father and the bitterness she felt at gaining a new sister were all portrayed without any of the usual cliches. This author's style is fresh and exciting! The characters were all very well developed and each had a distinct voice that I just loved. The unique take of the classic love triangle was sweet and touching. Read the book to find out more!

N: A Bright Blue Miracle was different than I thought it would be. I thought it was going to be super girly and  not at all my kind of book. I ended up getting drawn into the book and couldn't stop reading it! I felt like I could understand Leigh's feelings and struggles as she goes through the trials placed before her. Becca puts so much detail and feeling into it that I started crying on a some parts. As Leigh goes through the pain of losing her father, the struggles of getting a step dad and sister, and finding her way in life she learns so much more about herself than ever. I recommend this book to all readers! I hope you enjoy!
