Little Miss Eyes of Blue by Holly Tierney-Bedord
My rating 4 out of 5 stars
This book is the prequel to The Woman America Loves a Latte. This can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading both, because there is so much story and information to get from both books. This book shared the story of Veloura’s life growing up and bless her heart she did have it rough.
Her mother is a piece of work and i have nothing good to say about her. I think her dad really did love and care for her, but I wish he would have fought a little more to see her or even have custody. I hate that she had to keep every little good thing that happened to her bottled up and somewhere safe she she would never forget those moments, because they were few and far between.
I kept hoping that Veloura’s school life would help, but the fact that her and her selfish mother moved so many times, it was hard for her to form lasting friendships. The terrible things she goes through in school at the hands of her classmates, and the fact that she still comes out as a smart, yet naive young woman, surprises me and makes me happy. This shows she can continue living the life she wants and she can find happiness no matter what crappy circumstances she was dealt.
Great book and I would definitely recommend reading both this book and The Woman America Loves A Latte.
