Confession: I google myself alot! Always looking to see if there is some new bit of encouragement out there regarding BLUE. Here's a boost I received way back in December but it still makes me happy when it shows up in my search results.
You can find it at Electronic Newsletter of The Oregon Educational Media Association but it's kind of hidden among lots of other entries so I'll paste it here.
From Andrea Burke
We have a 2006 favorite at our school, Blue by Joyce Moyer Hostetter -Historical fiction, polio, WWII. Check-out with a package of tissues to the borrower.
Ahhh... On days when no one seems to be paying much attention to my baby this reminds me that she loved.
