Color Blind by @SLSobel @Merit_Press #BookReview

April is alone in the world. When she was only a baby, her teenage mother took off and now, unbelievably, her dad has died. Nobody's left to take April in except her mom's sister, a free spirit who's a chef in New Orleans--and someone who April's never met. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, April is suddenly supposed to navigate a city that feels just like she feels, fighting back from impossibly bad breaks. But it's Miles, a bayou boy, who really brings April into the heart of the Big Easy. He takes her to the cemetery where nineteenth-century voodoo queen Marie Laveau is buried, and there, April gets a shocking clue about her own past. Once she has a piece of the puzzle, she knows she will never give up. What she doesn't know is that finding out the truth about her past and the key to her future could cost her everything--maybe even her life.

An active member of the youth writing and film community, Sheila Sobel was recently nominated for the Allegra Johnson Prize in Fiction Writing. She lives in Southern California with her husband, her dogs, and her cats. This is her first novel.

In this story we follow April who lives in New Orleans. She has experienced an unexpected tragedy and this story follows her on her journey of coping and dealing with this tragedy. I think the book was well developed in the sense of describing how April was feeling and acting out because of this tragedy.
