The Blue Girl by Laurie Foos
"A book I read almost in a single sitting. Lyrical prose full of magical realism! The story of a blue girl, told by many different narrators that alternate in their telling. A bit disturbing. Compelling. Mysterious. There is a bit of everything in..." Read more of this review »

“I remember lying on the beach that afternoon, looking at Audrey while trying at the same time not to look because I knew if she caught me she’d turn away. I remember wondering if I had been that way with my own mother once, always distant, always trying to disappear, always dismissing her, she who had held me in her womb and squeezed me out. How ungrateful we all once were, we daughters who become mothers only to learn how it feels, the endless cycle of rejection. I remember thinking about my mother that day, wishing I could tell her how sorry I was.”
Laurie Foos, The Blue Girl
