In the spring of 1964, troubled teenager Cookie Blue is found dead in the Red River. Blue Vengeance follows her younger brother Danny and Cookie's friend Janine through a lazy Winnipeg summer, as they plot to kill the despised teacher they blame for Cookie's death. Danny's father is long gone, and his mother suffers from a debilitating medical condition. Her illness and self-medicated state free Danny from certain constraints traditionally put upon a young teenager by a parent...like committing murder. Like Hamlet, Danny Blue is bent on revenge but struggles with his conscience. As he grapples with grief and love, loyalty and betrayal, and the loneliness at the heart of being human, Danny comes to understand that his life, and his choices, will never be simple again. Alison Preston is a truly original writer and Blue Vengeance is a zinger of a coming-of-age tale, a mix of comedy, suspense, and poignant beauty that only she could create. ? Catherine Hunter (author of The Dead of Midnight)
