Blue Noise is easy to read, and the protagonists are likeable and easy to relate to. Oswald’s style doesn’t offer any surprises, and I found some parts awkward and infodumpish, but it does have its own charm. There’s a sweet honesty in the idea of teenagers who aren’t rebels, but who display courage in their own, non-earth-shattering ways.

Also interesting is the way Oswald delves into both Ash’s and Erin’s points of view. There’s something here for both male and female readers, including an opportunity to discover that perhaps teenage boys and girls have similar anxieties about themselves and how they’re perceived by others.

I’m not the target audience for this book, but I can see its appeal. Blue Noise isn’t the most sophisticated young adult novel I’ve read, but it has an accessible style and uplifting message that may well suit young teens or older reluctant readers.
