Red Blue Green by Sarah Healey
Red Blue Green is a contemporary coming-of-age story, set against a wide flat landscape and the rapidly changing experience of adolescence. A sixteen year old boy tells the story of his summer between school and college, between childhood and adulthood, as his family and friendships fall apart around him. His parents live with a tragic past and their marriage is imploding, his best friend is drawn into crime. He meets a girl who fascinates him. Can this timid boy get over his own personal insecurities to act on his feelings? Introverted and passive, he feels like an observer of other people’s lives, a living ghost.
