BOOK REVIEW: Color Blind by Penny Miller


BLURB:



All her life Harmony Phillips has felt defective. Growing up in a paranormal community where magikal abilities come from the wavelengths of color, a color blind girl is worthless, and they haven't let her forget it. No one but her adoptive parents, Charlie a Were-Lion and Sarah a Witch, along with her best friend Tesch, a Siren, have ever given her an ounce of esteem. When a fit of outrage unlocks the color yellow to her eyes, Harmony passes out cold with shock over her eggs and accidentally glamours her nemesis Challen Parks into a cowardly golden retriever. As other colors unfold before her eyes, so do new abilities. Love and friendship get turned upside down as Harmony struggles to have faith in people, discovering they are not always as they seem. The misfit becomes the outlaw as she is once again different from everyone else. What began as joy turns to peril when the paranormal Council finds out she is more than a Witch, or a Were or a Fae... oh my.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

I loved this book! 

It was magical, like who wouldn't want to be a far or a witch? It has some romance, but its not too bad. This book barely has any bad words. However, this book is sad. 

I'm not going to spoil it for you though so be sure you buy the book so you can read it! You will love it! 

Harmony sounds beautiful and very nice. She loves her adoptive parents very much. Tesch is Harmony's best friend and boyfriend. Tesch is a siren and, well lets just say, Harmony is a dragon. Charlie and Sarah are Harmony's adoptive parents that she loves. Charlie is a professor and Sarah has her own business. Sarah was a witch and Charlie was a were, but they both gave up their power when they adopted Harmony. They gave up their powers for love. Harmony was born colorblind, but when she started to see color it was a surprise to everyone! 

My favorite character is Harmony because she loves her parents and she loves Tesch. She will do anything to protect them. 

I recommend this book to those that love magic and fantasy worlds. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 to 16.
