Becoming Indigo is the second novel in a series by Tara Taylor and Lorna Schultz Nicholson. As with Through Indigo’s Eyes, this is an incredibly well-written young adult novel that both young and old (ahem: and all of us in between!) will enjoy.
We now find Indie in her own apartment with two roommates, her first summer after high school. She and her friends strive for independence and responsibility, deciding the evolutions of their individual lives. The regular questions of employment, college, boys, friends, and what-do-I-want-to-do-with-my-life are accompanied by Indie’s personal lessons with her clairvoyance. Learning to trust intuition, expand awareness, open to others, and protect our own energy are universal story lines that any reader will identify with and learn from, no matter if officially clairvoyant or not.
As with the first novel, this one also handles big-time issues in an overall positive manner. Thank you very much for tackling serious, real-world subjects without devolving into and focusing upon the drama! An example of this (no spoiler alert needed) is the healthy relationship between Indie and her family members, and how this interweaves with Indie’s in-progress lessons about boys and men. Although easily able to have descended into a teen-drama summer-read, again the authors have successfully kept the book elevated, with the focus on the higher-vibration aspect of story.
I am thrilled with this novel, and a wide variety of readers will enjoy it! Like the first book, this sequel is a powerful, positive force that will enhance and uplift the reader–and you won’t even see it coming because you will be so caught up with the story itself!
Looking for gift ideas for that tough-to-shop-for teen? Give a set of these Indigo books and you will feel you’ve done something worthwhile. (And a money bill makes a great bookmark, even for non-readers. Just saying.)
Hay House has graciously given me this book only in exchange for my honest opinion of it, and my copy has been donated to our local high school library. More young adult readers need to have material like this available to them–thank you, Tara and Lorna! The next book is eagerly awaited!
