Nothing But Blue

Jahn-Clough, Lisa. Nothing but Blue. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 2013.

This book was about a girl who wakes up one day on the side of the road, alone. The only thing she can remember are the words "All dead. No one survived." The girl, Blue, ignores these thoughts are starts walking towards what she hopes in home.

The author has a fair writing style. The are chapters, but they are not numbered. Instead the chapters alternated between past and present events. The vocabulary is at a good level and would probably introduce some new words to this age group.

This book had no illustrations.

I would recommend this book to others because it has an interesting plot line which differs from other from other books I have read. I think this book is best suited for young adults because it mentions he use of drugs and sex. This book is definitely more suitable for girls than boys. Overall, I thought it was an interesting and enjoyable read.  Age ranges to which this book would appeal: 15 to 19.
