Set before the events of Courtney C. Stevens's debut novel, Faking Normal, this digital short story focuses on Bodee Lennox, otherwise known as the Kool-Aid Kid.

Bodee Lennox has secrets. About where he got the four-inch scar on his leg. About the bruises on his back. About what it's really like to live in the Lennox household. These are things he doesn't share with anyone . . . until he meets Gerry, a girl with bright-green hair and a smile the size of Alaska. When Gerry falls out of a bus in Rickman, Tennessee, and lands at Bodee's feet, she gives Bodee two things he desperately needs: a friend and a chance to leave Rickman behind, even if it's just for a few hours.

He joins Gerry on her epic bus trip for as far as his money will take him. And by the end of the day, more of Bodee has changed than just the color of his hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insightful Prequel The Blue-Haired Boy, which is a prequel to Faking Normal, is an extremely short but extremely insightful story. This story allows the readers to learn the back story of Botee Lennox and to understand his character at a deeper level when referring to Faking Normal. This story took under an hour to read as it is only approximately 71 pages, however the 71 pages that it is allows you to emphasizes with Botee as well as to learn where his coloured hair stems from within Faking Normal.
