Blue - Lou Aronica

Book Blurb:
Chris Astor is a man in his early forties who is going through the toughest stretch of his life. Becky is Chris's fourteen-year-old daughter, a girl who overcame enormous challenges to become a vibrant, vital young woman - and now faces her greatest obstacle yet. Miea is the young queen of a fantasy land that Becky and Chris created when Becky was little, a fantasy land that has developed a life of its own and now finds itself in terrible, maybe fatal trouble. Together, Chris, Becky, and Miea need to uncover a secret. The secret to why their worlds have joined at this moment. The secret to their purpose. The secret to the future. It is a secret that, when discovered, will redefine imagination for all of them. Blue is a novel of trial and hope, invention and rediscovery. It might very well take you someplace you never knew existed.

My Thoughts: This was a touching story of a father and daughter. Chris creates this world for his daughter to take her away from the leukemia she is going through. It reminded me of how my own dad would do things for me when I was sick. I was very touched by this story and found myself taken to a place of memories. I highly recommend this book!

This is a wonderful book. I like fantasy novels and this novel is a totally different spin on fantasy. The story is so haunting because of the love of a father for his daughter. I think it points out that people at sometime in their life just have to BELIEVE.
I had a hard time putting my Nook down but sometimes my eyes just gave out. Since I've read it, I've found myself thinking about it at different times. Everyone doesn't like the same books but this is a beautiful story.
