In BLG, Tia, a grumpy and misunderstood teenager, is sent away to her Auntie Maisie in the 'middle of nowhere' countryside for the summer.
Can she get over gothic black clothes and overapplied make-up so that she can settle for a six week vacation with the only adult who seems to understand her and hardly any friends to keep her company?
The character I liked most in the story was Jackson because when Tia first met him he seemed spiteful, but when she got to know him a bit better, he was really an adventurous and kind person at heart.
I would rate Blue Lavender Girl 10 out of 10 as it is a wonderful story about how you can turn you'r life upside down in a good way when you think you are useless or dull, and it is funny at times as well as a bit emotional.
I would recommend this book for 12-15 year olds as it is a book for older and more avid readers.
I found BLG in Tallaght library, and you can find it in local libraries or good bookstores near you.
Are you a fan of Judy May? Then you should read Copper Girl, another good book for older readers!
Thanks for reading my latest book review, and I will be back soon with further info about great books and interesting events!
