The Blue Girl

review ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Õ Charles de Lint

I ead and adored this book years and years ago and just now ealised it s by Charles de Lint set in the very same world I fell in love with a few weeks ago thanks to his beautiful Dreams Underfoot The adoration hasn t faded with time or with e eading as so often happens with childhood favourites and this book is making it s way to my all time favourites list Now here comes the love letter my apologies I "can t help but wax a little lyrical with books like this The characters are wonderful and likeable transcending clich Yes "t help but wax a little lyrical with books like this The characters are wonderful and likeable transcending clich Yes s the Geek the Outcasts the Mean Girl the Meathead boy the Difficult Mum but it feels always as though the author is poking fun at the stereotypes Imogene actually talks to her mother shock horror who seems supportive if a little flaky view spoilerThe Difficult Mum Maxine s actually turns out to be better than first thought and is actually a fully formed character we get glimpses of the issues that make her so strict in the first place The Geek isn t all that likeable without meaning to sound too harsh we kind of see why he in "Particular Was So Picked On " was so picked on t make it ight at *All Just A Little *just a little The Mean girl has depth but doesn t suddenley change and become nice again it just becomes clearer as to why she is so awful And etc etc etc hide spoiler From the very first pages I felt this is familiar territory I m a big fan of the highschool comedies of the 1980 s and The Blue Girl starts with a couple of outsiders making common front against loneliness and bullying Imogen is the new kid in school a wild one with hippie parents and a troubled history and Maxine is the studious timid high achiever with old fashioned clothes picked by her mother Each has something to learn from the other If you e wondering where the book title is coming from be patient it will be made hilariously clear in the second halfThe first person narrative made me uickly involved in the fate of the protagonists The supernatural part of the story a ghost wild faeries dangerous entities of darkness is slight in the beginning but it develops well to take center stage towards the endCompared to my previous Newford book The Onion Girl this feel. Seventeen year old Imogene's tough ebellious nature has caused her harm than good so when her family moves to Newford she decides to Busy Park reinvent herself She won't lose her punkthrift shop look but she'll try to avoid the gangs work a little harder at school and maybe even stay out of troub. S lighter in tone and streamlined customized for a YA audience I had no problem with this in fact I think de Lint did a sterling job of mixing the fun parts with the darker content of the story without dumbing down the characters or sugar coating the issues Fairy taleseal "fairytales not the ones that end up in picture books or Disney cartoons are all about danger and "not the ones that end up in picture books or Disney cartoons are all about danger and and terrible things happening People get hurt in them all the time This particular uote eminded me of the original Grimm Brothers stories that gave me uite a few scares in childhoodThere s a particularly good scene with Maxine and the novelist Christy Riddell where they discuss writing techniues and the need for the fantastic elements in a story I didn t take *Notes But Basically If A Story Makes *but basically if a story makes look at your life from a new angle and eevaluate your options it doesn t matter if it is invented or notAnd one final uote from a dialogue between Imogen and her mother one of the best characters in the book We GIS and Fr�uleins: The German-American Encounter in 1950s West Germany re not going to have a normal life are we Would we want to I m not planning toead the Newport books in order I may miss some The Confederate Privateers references to the back stories ofecurring characters but the main story both here and in Onion Girl was self contained I plan to Big Bad Detective Agency return to this setting but I don t know yet which book it will be I found this one on my bookshelf I know I bought this andead it shortly after it came out but eleven years later I couldn t The Placer remember how I felt about it Reading it now brought back some memories ofeading it for the first time I believe it was one of my first forays into the young adult urban fantasy genre I

At lurk in the dark This story and its characters end up developing a lot than I originally emember which was very enjoyable for me as a eader Imogene is not only Der Bilderwächter rebellious she iseasonable and thinks before she does anything hot headed She allows Maxine to flourish as a character and Imogene is somewhat of an enigma to the eader which keeps everything interesting for the eader The character of Adrian was interesting but I would have liked to see him as a little bit active He felt mostly passive as if he was being acted upon ather than an actor himself De Lint uses traditional faerie descriptions and traditions I especially like how he embodies darkness as a symbolcharacterforce in the novel and how the characters develop their own methods of fighting back What frustrated me now and probably in the past *as well is how the book jumps characters point of views and *well is how the book jumps characters point of views and versus present occurrences There were times I would start eading a new section and not Schätze Aus Dem Musée Picasso, Paris realize who was talking and where the story has picked up the author doesefer to these changes but I felt that the separations were not clear enough for me to easily follow That being said this was a very enjoyable Letters to Rollins read and a great book for anyone with any interest in urban fantasy andor young adult novels If youe new to de Lint "s books and are looking for something with substance I urge you not to ead this one Try the other "books and are looking for something with substance I urge you not to ead this one Try the other books first or Someplace to be Flying I love a book that takes an familiar trope and turns it on its ear Forget what you know from other books about fairies Charles de Lint s fairies aren t particularly beautiful but they are a little bit wicked I loved the way he mixed elements from fantasy science "fiction even horror to create his world The characters are ealistic and "even horror to create his world The characters are ealistic and and the issues they deal with are eal as much as they are fantastic Bullying oppressive parents parents who don t care enough image and one s eal self all come into play Not to mention soul sucking shadow creatures fairies ghosts angels and an imaginary friend named Pelly who is half boy half hedgehog half Unverified: A Novel rabbitGreat book probably for slightly older YA audience 14 for good measure. E impossible is all tooeal And it's dangerous If she wants to survive high school not to mention stay alive she has to fall back on the skills she picked up in her hometown Grand Teton Explorers Guide running with a gang Even with Maxine and some unexpected allies by her side will her new friend be able to make
