Blue by Lou Aronica
Goodreads Description: 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: I really loved this book! I got really caught up with all of the characters, especially Chris. I hurt right along with him and wanted things to get better for him. What great love he had for his daughter Becky! No matter what his ex-wife Polly threw at him, he wasn't going to let that get in the way of trying to have a relationship with Becky. It broke my heart when you start seeing the symptoms of Becky's disease returning.
What can I say about Tamarisk? My hubby used to make up stories for our kids when they were little. How amazing would it be to be able to visit a world that you had actually created with your imagination?!
A great book about love and possibilities.

*This book is clean. There might have been a few swear words, but nothing that stands out.
