Devil and the Bluebird

by

Ever since losing her mother to cancer things have been rough for Blue Riley. Not only did she lose her mother but she also lost her mother’s musical and romantic partner Tish, who had helped raise her and suddenly left their lives when her mother got sick. Oh, AND, her older sister Cass? She is gone, too. Off to chase her musical dreams wiindex.jpgth barely a word back home.

Blue who is tired of losing people and feeling helpless decides to make a deal- with the devil. When she encounters a beautiful devil at her town crossroads, it’s her runaway sister’s soul she fights to save. The devil steals Blue’s voice—inherited from her musically gifted mother—in exchange for a single shot at finding Cass.

  Armed with her mother’s guitar, a knapsack of cherished mementos, and a pair of magical boots, Blue journeys west in search of her sister. When the devil changes the terms of their deal, Blue must reevaluate her understanding of good and evil and open herself up to finding family in unexpected places.
This story was beautiful. It starts out with the reader thinking that the end-goal is for Blue to find Cass. But really this story is about the journey of Blue realizing that she really needs to find HER place in the world and where SHE will go.
