I’ve read quite a few books about foster children, but until I picked this one up, I hadn’t realized that they were all from the point of view of the foster child. Cynthia Lord takes a different approach here. Touch Blue is from the point of view of Tess, a child whose family is taking in a foster child. Tess tries her best to make Aaron feel welcome, but he doesn’t want to be there. It doesn’t help that Tess’s family agreed to take him in to prevent the state from shutting down their island school due to low student numbers. How can Tess and her family convince Aaron that they really do want him there?
