Indigo blue is all about a girl called Indie who loves to daydream. Daydreaming never lets her down because in her dreams she gets to be in charge of what happens. In real life, not so much.
The story begins with Indie, her sister and her mom moving into flat number number 33 on Hartington Drive which looks like it might have once belonged to the Adams Family. The paint is peeling of the walls, there are dead shrubs in the flower beds. The flat is not really livable to say the least but with lots of blue paint and love it soon starts to feel like home.
Things start to turn normal after a while, Indigo’s mom gets a job, Indigo gets her best friend Jo back, she is selected to play the main lead in the school play and even Mrs Green, their grumpy neighbour starts to seem nice but like in most books things don’t stay normal for long. Soon the reason why they moved or rather ran away from is back, knocking on their door and no amount of daydreaming is enough to escape the nightmare. ( I know this is really brief but I didn’t wish to add any more spoilers. )
Indigo Blue made me sad, mad and happy at the same time. I absolutely loved this book. So much that I’ve read it atlist twenty times by now. I aspecially loved the end but I won’t talk about it because again, I don’t want to spoil it for anyone.
Let’s start with the protagonist, Indigo. Her character portrayal was amazing. The book just couldn’t have had a better protagonist. The supporting cast of characters were also stupendous. I do wish I could have know more about them but then again I can’t really complain because afterall they were the supporting characters.
Moving on, the book had a great plot but I wasn’t really impressed by the narrative. I feel like it lacked something. Now I am not saying it wasn’t good but I do believe it could have been better in some places. Being the avid fan of Cathy Cassidy that I am, I can’t help but expect more from her.
The not so great narrative could have easily made the book seem tedious but luckily for the book, the details intercepted it. I really loved the attention paid to the tiny details. For me, the details always make the story more believable. It’s feels like I am actually watching the story unfold rather than just reading it but too many details also make me lose interest. I am glad to say that this book had just the right amount of details.
Overall I really loved this book and I definitely recommend reading it. Now I won’t say this book was extraordinary because it was pretty ordinary but it was a good book nevertheless. A good book that I totally think you should read.
