Amy Harmon knew at an early age that writing was something she wanted to do, and she divided her time between writing songs and stories as she grew. Having grown up in the middle of wheat fields without a television, with only her books and her siblings to entertain her, she developed a strong sense of what made a good story. Amy Harmon has been a motivational speaker, a grade school teacher, a junior high teacher, a home school mom, and a member of the Grammy Award winning Saints Unified Voices Choir, directed by Gladys Knight. She released a Christian Blues CD in 2007 called "What I Know" - also available on Amazon and wherever digital music is sold. She has written four novels, Running Barefoot, Slow Dance in Purgatory, Prom Night in Purgatory, and coming March 29, A DIFFERENT BLUE.

WOW WOW WOW!
This book was so beautifully written with lots of lessons to be learned. Both inside the classroom and outside in the real world. Blue Echohawk is one inspiring girl, even more so because she truly doesn't realize how inspiring she is to others around her. She is too stuck in the past, in regret and in self depravity. She is going through the motions of life, not loving herself and not knowing how to love either. After a few flashbacks from the past you really get the firm grasp of her past obstacles and mystery which truly kept me turn the pages so fast to see the end result. What is her ending?
Her story starts out rough but meeting Wilson proved to turn her path of her destiny. For Wilson, she turned his life upside down as well. It didn't help their connect that Wilson is her History teacher.
I loved this novel so so much. It proves that the teacher isn't always the one to teach. The teacher must learn also and sometimes it's in the most unusual of places.
The way it wraps up is truly brilliant. I couldn't even believe the story that unravels and I seriously may just flip through it again for the thrill.
Amy Harmon is a genius!
