    1. Blueberry Truth by Ute Carbone is one of those novels that may well stay with readers for a long time. Carbone’s ability to create believable characters that readers will care about and practically fall in love is first rate. From the first page, readers are drawn into Verbena “Beanie” Mackenzie’s whirlwind perfect life: Beanie is the do-good teacher working with special needs kids at St. Luke’s and her husband Mac is the gifted pediatric cardiologist. Where, at first, it would seem to [...]


    2. This surely will be a success - it has all the ingredients. The main character, Beanie, is the kind of woman most readers would want for their best-friend. She's not perfect but she's brave, determined and just down-right good (even if she does have trouble with her sisters - but who doesn't?). And her husband is every woman's dream: a dedicated doctor, he's no push-over and he's determined to stand his ground but willing to admit he's wrong if proven so. And he dearly loves his wife. What a del [...]


    3. 3.5 stars.So let's just get this out of the way first: This story is front to back one long cliche. It's been done a thousand times, there are less than no surprises or twists, there's really nothing unique to this story that isn't included in every "woman desperately wants a baby and takes in an orphan" book out there.But somehow it still works. It's cute, it's very sweet, it moves fast. I never really came to connect or care about any of the characters, and yet It worked for me.I honestly don' [...]


    4. I taught in a school much like the one where Beanie works. It was a life changing experience and,like most life changing experiences, teaching children who had been abused or neglected was fraught with challenges. It was also rewarding. Like Beanie, I love Blue and children like her. I love her resistance, her toughness. At seven, she's already a survivor. Beanie talks in the book about quiet heroes, the regular people who make a big difference to others. Beanie, although she'd never admit it, i [...]


    5. This inspirational little gem is written in the tradition of great stories like My Posse Don't Do Homework (the book that inspired the movie Dangerous Minds) and The Freedom Writers Diary, without the same level of violence. This book left me feeling inspired to go out into the world and do something goodmething that matters or that makes a difference. It is one of those feel-good stories that will leave you feeling good for a while after reading it. The characters are so real, they will seem li [...]


    6. I really enjoyed this book. It is about daring to have hope, having it ripped from your hands and your heart, but continuing to hope in spite of it all. It left me wanting to know more. I suppose that is one of the marks of a good book.A word of cautionIf I had a dollar for every time someone dropped an F-bomb, I could take myself a nice vacation. Most books that I read, I feel like this kind of language doesn't add anything to the story. However, in this case you have a 7 year old girl who has [...]


    7. I taught in a school much like the one where Beanie works.

Like Beanie, I love Blue and children like her. I love her resistance, her toughness. At seven, she's already a survivor. Beanie is the teacher and person anyone, me included, can aspire to be.

    8. What a lovely book. Blueberry Truth is a wayward girl from a broken and horrifying background. She has learned from being an infant that the best defence is attack. Then she meets Beanie - a woman who is going through her own crisis. The two of them need each other, even though they may not realise it. I loved the pace, warmth and development of this story. It grabbed me and then refused to let go. Even if you don't normally read this genre (as I rarely do), I heartily recommend it to you.


    9. I loved, loved, loved this book. Beanie, a special ed teacher, is surrounded by kids all day but, ironically, can't seem to conceive. The tension between her and her husband over this issue is beautifully portrayed along with Beanie's inner pain. When she meets a mouthy, rebellious student who seems determined to ensure that no one ever loves her, welllet's say that love blooms in the most unlikely places and between the most unlikely people.


    10. I read this in no time, which was a little disappointing because the story ended well before I was ready. I enjoyed the story immensely but felt that the skipping chunks of time left the story a little lacking.


    11. One who lives in Albany will call the university SUNY not U of Albany. It's Pine Hills not Pine Hill. Aside from certain details, I loved the writing and the story.


    12. I loved everything about this storye style, characters, honesty and the reality of the message. If only the world were full of Beanies.



    13. absolutely LOVED this book! The characters were so well developed and loveable! The conflict made my heart hurt and the resolution made me feel so happy and fulfilled myself!


    14. This is a sweet story about hard truth. Add a great main character and you have a good read with genuine heart.
