Review for Purple Girl

9780991028313Received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Wow this is creative, a purple girl. Now I hear you say purple? Yes, purple from top to toe. The poor thing was born like this and has been shunned by people because of that. Oh and probably because everything she touches turns purple for a little bit too.

Can I say, I loved her parents, they never once were mean (though her dad was at times a bit unfair), and they cared for even though they were scared out of their wits when she was born, but they kept her, even though everyone else thought they should have dumped her at birth.

I loved the boy, how he didn’t care about Violet’s colour, he found her rather refreshing. 🙂 Loved that they became friends pretty soon. Sadly it is of course not meant to be and he leaves.
Violet decides to go after him (after a fight with her dad, never a good way to leave the house though).

We also have the occasional illustrations, sadly it was really only occasional. I would have loved more of those illustrations, they really liven up the book.

I loved the book’s setting, loved the scenes that rolled through the book. From fields to woods, to towns and little cities. It was gorgeous.

Best of all? I loved the ending, I won’t spoil anything, but believe me it is perfect.

This book was gorgeous, and I really enjoyed it. It was a beautiful tale of a purple girl, about discrimination but also about acceptation. I would really recommend it to everyone!
