I loved this story ever sense I was a child and reading it again brings back memories. I love the illustrations because it looks so old with design but it's such a great story.

It's easy to remember only the good parts of people if you never see them. Real people are much more complicated.

Touch Blue | Cynthia Lord

I thought that this book was a good book because of the storyline of the family adopting the young boy. The relationship of the boy and young girl is interesting with the details of their relationship.
