Izzy is hoping for a mellow yellow year of happiness. But for her impulsive big sister, Alex, life is much more colourful. She always writes to Izzy in a violet pen, which suits her dramatic personality. When one of Alex’s letters delivers a bolt from the blue, Izzy fears the future will be less than rosy. Will Alex’s new boyfriend spoil their sisterly bond, or does every cloud really have a silver lining?
I don’t have a lot to say about this book to be honest; the main character, Izzy, is eleven/twelve years old so I think I was a bit old for the age group that it is aimed at which is why I’ve given it a 5/10. The story was O.K and there was nothing in particular wrong with the overall book, so I haven’t given it below a 5/10 because I didn’t feel it was fair on the author to give it a generally negative review just because I’m not within the age group it is aimed at.
By all means read this book, the story was good but it just wasn’t my type of book.
