Janie . . . Leshaya . . . whatever she’s called, she’s a survivor. Rescued from the brink of death, this child of a heroin addict has seen it all: revolving foster homes, physical abuse, an unwanted pregnancy. Now, as her tumultuous childhood is coming to an end, she is determined not only to survive but to make a life for herself by doing the only thing that makes her feel whole . . . singing.
Born Blue is the hard-hitting story of a girl who searches for love and security despite the roadblocks in her way—a gritty story that inspires understanding, tolerance, and compassion. National Book Award winner Han Nolan introduces a heroine unlike any before. A girl with the voice of a woman. A woman with the dreams of a little girl. Readers will never forget Leshaya.
A portion of the sales from this book will be donated to the Monarch High School Project in San Diego, California.
