Blue - Lou Aronica I really liked Becky and the fantasy part of this book. It was very entertaining how it all connected together. The fantasy in this book is great, and the world building and details are outstanding. Though for me, the multiple perspectives retracted from the story. I wish that we could have just stayed with Becky, or maybe just her and Miea. I understand I think why Aronica did it, but I felt bombarded with characters and their stories. There are great themes and things that can be learned from Blue. Communication is one important thing, as well as how actions can widely effect others and the world around you. Becky's illness is a very intriguing part of the story and really helps to amplify and move the plot in so many ways. It is heartbreaking and inspires hope at the same time. The last 75 or so pages are my absolute favorite- the characters have become close to me, and the ending is spectacular!
