      When I eat by myself in the cafeteria I bring a book with me so I don t seem so pathetic But really I only read about a page because I am trying to get in and out as fast as possible.Tonight during dinner I opened up Born Blue and it was 20 minutes before I realized I had stopped eating And once I realized that I didn t want to get up because I didn t want to lose the time I could be reading it on the walk back to my dorm.I first read Born Blue by Han Nolan in 7th grade It was my first time read [...]

      I realy wasn t expecting to like this novel as much as I did I wasn t into the bad childlike writing and language Though as I kept reading I had begun to see what it all meant.This story is about a troubled young girl, named Janie, but She later changes her name to leshaya In this novel, you will see how this young woman overcomes her obstacles and never gives up on her dreams.At only 4 years old, Janie is taken from her mother Linda and put into Foster care I believe, since she told us this fir [...]

      The main thing about this book that keeps you reading is the voice of it Written in first person, it feels like Leshaya the main character , is talking directly to you.Aside from the voice of the story, Born Blue is also very touching, and has a strong, independent female character that is very inspiring As you read, you start from Leshaya s childhood,and move with her as she gets older and runs into trouble The book was captivating from the very beginning, was strong, and had an important mess [...]

      You start off by feeling bad for this poor little girl and then just end up getting annoyed with a stupid teenager who becomes a slut and a druggie and your not sure she s really learned her lesson by the end of it You want to care for her but at the same time she s been given so many options to turn her life around and she never took them.

    8. Heather says:

      Born Blue is a really great book because it is about the reality of being homeless.This a situation that some people have to face everyday that i never understood until now.You get to know the main character Leshaya really good,you almost feel like know her personally.She has a special talent for singing and has a dream to someday be a famous singer.Her story is touching and meaningful.

      2.5 5To recap, in case you haven t read my previous reviews I think Crazy is one of the best books in the world, my love for it makes me too hard on other books by Han Nolan, If I Should Die Before I Wake was mediocre.This book was another merely average entry from Nolan I m starting to think I should just give up on trying to find anything good in the same way Crazy was, because this was nowhere near that level I m not saying this is a bad book, because it isn t Nolan really does try to write a [...]

      Setiap orang memiliki alasan dibalik semua hal yang dilakukannya Kalimat itulah yang menjadi pegangan saya sejak lama ketika berhadapan dengan orang orang yang jauh berbeda terutama dari segi pemikiran Walaupun kalimat itu tidak cukup ampun untuk membuat saya berhenti memberi cap baik dan buruk Semua itu karena pemahaman yang saya pikir sudah mengakar begitu dalam Semua itu kembali saya ungkapkan ketika membaca novel karya Han Nolan ini.Di usia yang sangat belia, Janie harus tinggal terpisah den [...]

    12. Carlyn says:

      Born Blue had interesting characters and a pretty good storyline, but it was honestly a let down Although it took me less than a day to read through the book, I found myself re reading lines, and then re reading them again because the writing was so odd It wasn t bad, per say, but it was different in the sense that barely any of the book was written in proper English The first sentence is In my first memory, I be drowning The book did catch me there, and I was confused by that line so I continue [...]

    13. Allie Williams says:

      Born Blue by Han Nolan is an exceptional book Han Nolan has written many other books, all very successful She grew up in New York and has always loved to make up stories Han has always been very active and has written her whole life Born Blue is about a girl, who is first named Janie, with a mother that is addicted to heroin When Janie was just a little girl she was left by her high mother Mama Linda in the Gulf Of Mexico while she was drowning Janie later changes her name to Leyshaya after she [...]

      This is in the YA category Ultimately, it s rather sad because the ending leaves you hanging you never know if Jane Leshaya cleans up her act, grows up to realize her dream of being a jazz R B singer, or whether she gets back on the drug merry go round she s been on Given what she s already been through, her mother a heroin addict who had her removed sent to a bad foster home, then kidnapped from the foster home by her mother on an unannounced visit in essence, traded to her drug dealers for a f [...]

      Janie, aka Leshaya, is a survivor it is not as if she has any choice in the matter, since life keeps dealing her knockout blows Born to a heroin addicted mother, her childhood is spent in foster homes, passed around from person to person, few of whom take time to parent her Her only salvation is music, for when she opens her mouth to sing, then and only then does Janie feel alive Yet she looks everywhere for love in food, in drugs, and always, always, falling in with the wrong man Her mother kid [...]

    16. Desiray says:

      Born Blue By Han Nolan was really great because of all this girl went through like almost being drowned my her mom at four and then her mama being on herion Also living with patsy and pete they treated Leysha and Harmon which was Leshyas best friend like they were pretty much dirt And after everything she went through which Im not gonna tell you everything she still seems okay in the end but not gonna give that away either you will just have to read it to find out

    17. Maricarmen V says:

      I liked this book very much because it had so much deatil Born blue was full of suspense, I d always want to keep reading and reading Leshaya was a fansinating character, and the life she had simply astonished me She went through so many hard times, so many times where she needed someone but there wasn t anyone there She truely had to go on her own, survive all on her own and at such a young age.

    18. Spider the Doof Warrior says:

      Han Nolan is an excellent Young Adult writer In this book we encounter large amounts of pain and suffering and a passion for music that gets Janie Leshaya through her horrible, abusive life It really isn t a book for the faint hearted, but it manages to handle issues like drug abuse, teen pregnancy and AIDS in a powerful and realistic way.

    19. Courtney says:

      I think I read this All I remember is that there was a girl who loved Etta James and wanted to become a singer I did a google search and this is what came up If I can t remember how to spell today I can t remember what I read 10 years ago lol.

    20. Jourdan says:

      this book was so cool highly recommend reading it

    21. Sarah Cash says:

      It was difficult to read this book without wanting to make grammatical corrections.

    22. LadyInMAC says:

      Horrible I understand why the author wrote it the way she did, but for me, given how this girl grew up and the environment she was in, but it annoyed me so much that I was getting a headache from attempting to decipher what the girl was saying I gave up fairly quickly One of the worst books I ve ever purchased and a waste of money.

    23. Emily Ray says:

      This book is honestly the best book that I have ever read It has so many mixed emotions that I can feel when Janie Leshaya feels This is the kind of book that I would want to read over and over and over again.

    24. Crystal Ellzey says:

      I m gonna start off by saying I understand why she wrote the book in the format she did but it just wasn t my cup of tea However, I am a sucker for foster care stories It was accurate on life experiences I can t say I d read it again.

    25. Heidi says:

      One of my best reads Great story

    27. K says:

      Trying to imagine being neglected was transparent Trying to imagine being trapped in drug s embrace was forlorn But trying to imagine going through both was terrifying and unimaginable Leshaya has gone through both and so much , all under the age of 16 Born Blue is written through the eyes of a teen transitioning to be an adult, born into a blue life and born to love the Blues Janie, known as Leshaya, was malevolent and slightly detrimental Leshaya was the child of a heroin addict named Mama Li [...]

      Reading this book reminded me of my troubled students One thing for sure, parents make all the difference I can tell lots of stories about my silver spoon fed students those whose parents told them they don t have to worry about money the rest of their lives and they are no different with Janie Leshaya of this story Janie grew up in foster care her mother gave her up to an abusive foster parents From the beginning there s always been someone who still cared for her, like Doris, the social worker [...]
