Dark Blue: Color me Lonely by Melody Carlson

Back Cover: Kara Hendricks and Jordan Ferguson have been best friends since kindergarten. By now- sophomore year- they're more like sisters, really. Jordan has always been the leader in the friendship, but still she's the perfect friend. That is, until she starts to hang with a new, "cool" crowd and decides Kara is a popularity liability. Best friends forever? Yeah, right. Devastated, Kara feels betrayed and abandoned by everyone- even God. How could Jordan do this? Why did God let this happen? Yet for all the hurt and insecurity, these dark blue days contain a life-changing secret. Now that Jordan is gone, Kara has the chance to discover something about herself that she never knew before. But first, she must learn to trust again. It won't be easy. This was an inspiring book for sure. These color books are so amazing, because they focus on one feeling and it's like it's happening to you. I think I already said something like that, but it's so true! And it felt so sad when Kara was all alone like that, I felt horrible for her. I mean, I've never felt that really before, but I can understand the feeling because not that I'm lonley in college, but I feel that I don't fit in. But I have my boyfriend with me, and God, so I'll be ok. Anyways, then it was nice she got to find some new friends, but was still kinda pining for Jordan, which makes sense. And then when Edgar told the news that his mom hung herself, I almost started to cry, especially talking about the funeral since I was at a funeral last month and it was really hard. But I know my great-grandpa is in heaven and without all the pain he had and I miss him alot! But it's good for me to read some Christian books about teens ya know, I learned stuff in the book and it's relatable. But it's interesting because the next book is in Jordan's life now so we'll see what happens to her!
