I really like this book! And I am totally reading the rest of the series!!! But… I am going to warn you, these books are VERY realistic. They deal with serious problems in this world that most people want to ignore. Like cutting, drugs, alcohol, and eating disorders. The first book is depression I think, but the rest are very serious… (I would say these books are probably for older teens… and mostly girls…)

This book is about a girl who loses her best friend, and has to discover who she is without her. It was really good and very enjoyable; but there is mention of suicide and drugs. (Plus I bunch of goth kids who are high… Very realistic)

Over all, I really liked the book. It kind-of opens your eyes to the brokenness around you, and makes me want to get up and tell everyone about Jesus! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A really good book for teens!
  • Real-life stuggles
  • Christian-friendly!!!


  • Some dark ‘adult’ topics…

Kara Hendricks and Jordan Ferguson have been best friends since kindergarten. That is until Jordan started hanging out with a new “cool” crowd and decided Kara was a popularity liability. Devastated, Kara feels betrayed and abandoned by everyone–even God. Yet for all the hurt and insecurity, these dark blue days contain a life-changing secret. Kara has the chance to discover something about herself that she never knew before.
