Charles de Lint È 5 Free download Free read Í The Blue Girl 105 Seventeen year old Imogene's tough rebellious nature has caused her harm than good so when her family moves to Newford she decides to 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. This review was originally posted in 2008 after I had read the book for the first timeThe Blue Girl by Charles de Lint has been one of the most satisfying snatches from the fantasy shelves for me last yearIs has it all1 A very warm hearted and detailed description of a forming unlikely friendship between tough punk girl Imogene who had a criminal gang member record in her hometown and a childhood spent mainly on her own because of her drug consuming carefree hippy parents and anxious smart and conservative outsider Maxine who has difficulties coming out of her shell because of her ever present controlling mother2 Dark mysterious fantasy tightly interwoven with reality Imogene s imaginary childhood friend Pelly something in the middle between hedgehog and boy with bunny ears and a monkey s tail turns up in flesh after a long absence and warns her Somehow Imogene has angered the malicious band of faeries living on the school grounds and therefore her life is suddenly on stake In her efforts to get light into the matter she meets the ghost of a former high school student whose death was caused by faeries as well Imogene finds out that faeries are by far not the most dangerous creatures in town Bonded with Pelly and Maxine the long time loner learns a lot about trust and friendship and wins in the end3 Last but not least there are some interesting sub plots like Imogene s dealings with the school s bullies her relationship with her brother and the slowly growing romance with a music shop guy whose granny comes from Ireland and believes in faeries as wellI will definitly read books by this author and recommend for anyone who likes finely tuned characters and dark fantasy to have a try as well

I found this one on my bookshelf I know I bought this and read it shortly after it came out but eleven years later I couldn t remember how I felt about it Reading it now brought back some memories of reading it for the first time I believe it was one of my first forays into the young adult urban fantasy genre I believe it is an excellent introductory novel for young adults looking to transition from realistic fiction type novels into fantasy Imogene is the rebellious character starting over in a new town trying to reinvent herself Maxine is the straight laced A student looking to break away from her mother s mold Between the two of them they develop a friendship that works much to the surprise of everyone including themselves However when supernatural events start occurring Imogene and Maxine have to figure what they truly believe in and confront the things that lurk in the dark This story and its characters end up developing a lot than I originally remember which was very enjoyable for me as a reader Imogene is not only rebellious she is reasonable 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 reader which keeps everything interesting for the reader 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 rather 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 past versus present occurrences There were times I would start reading a new section and not realize who was talking and where the story has picked up the author does refer 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 read and a great book for anyone with any interest in urban fantasy andor young adult novels
