Blue is an orphan who disguises herself as a newsboy. There's a war going on, and girls are expected to help the struggling economy by selling cookies. But Blue loves living and working at the Bugle, the only paper in town that tells the truth. And what's printed in the newspapers now matters more than ever.

But Blue struggles with her secret, and worries that if her friends and adopted family at the Bugle find out that she's a girl, she'll lose everything and everyone she cares about. And when she meets and befriends Crow, a boy who is also not what he seems, together they seek the freedom to be their true selves... and to save each other.

    I read this book because it had a cool book cover, and I looked through some of the pages and thought it looked interesting. It has good illustrations, and there's a lot of action too. My favorite part of the book was when people were blasting rocket things at the ship that Blue and Crow were on. I think people that like to read graphic novels will like the characters and illustrations.

      Blue is a orphaned girl who dresses as a boy so nobody bothers her about doing what she loves best-----delivering news-papers. This is a powerful graphic novel that told me that girls have just as much ability to do what they love as any boy. I love this book, and I definitely recommend it!

        Lavender Blue is a girl disguised as a boy that works at the Bugle and when she meets and unusual boy, named Crow, who is not what he seems, they become friends. But somebody is after Crow and now Blue must help him. I would recommend this for ages 10+ This book had really good graphics but the pace was sort of weird. While some parts were super exciting, some parts were really boring. I also found some parts really confusing. Other than that, this book was super fun to read and I would recommend it to fans of Be Prepared and Invisible Emmie.
