rating: 4 of 5 stars
It has been a long time since I stayed up to read a book past 1:00 a.m. Bright Blue Miracle had to be read. It has an inviting cover that pulls you in and a story that touches your heart.
The main character, Leigh, is a teenager with a best friend,(who happens to be a boy), a Mom who is remarrying and a new, beautiful step-sister. Leigh learns a lot about trust, learning to love and sharing your heart and feelings. Even though the main characters are teenagers, it did not feel like a typical teenage book. This book had a more grow-up feel, but will still appeal to young people and adults.
The author, Becca Wilhite, has a free, easy style of writing that makes words just seem to flow. The dialogue was witty and kept the storyline moving. Becca also gave the main character a fun, quirky personality. At first you think Leigh is a spoiled girl, but then you grow to love her and are cheering for her at the end.
I really look forward to what else Becca will write; she's made me a fan. Bright Blue Miracle left me feeling good when I finished reading. It was worth losing some sleep and in exchange,lifting my spirits in return.

Kids literature is my favorite. I have a published novel, "Bright Blue Miracle" written for the "clean teen" market. It's a family story - about step-twins. (What? You've never heard that word? Possibly because I recently made it up.)
I love reading great books. Even though all my kids can read, we still read aloud together, because we think it's fun. And helpful, and it means we always have things to talk about.
