Izzy adores her rash, confident older sister Alex. But she doesn’t understand what’s happened to her idol.
Izzy knows that the only way that she can help her sister is if Alex confides in her, if Alex tells her the real truth, no matter how shocking it is, no matter how much it hurts.
As Alex starts a new life Izzy feels herself being ripped away from her close relationship with her sister.
This book has a theme of colours, hence the title ‘Violet Ink’. This theme is original and intriguing, and is an interesting subject for Izzy to base her life on. For instance, Izzy wants to have a ‘yellow’ new year, because yellow is the colour for happiness. High quality description and language is not displayed at all in this book, which is rather a let-down as the plot is original although with slightly more grown-up subjects. Also, the story would have benefited from more physical description of characters. However, I did really enjoy this book and would recommend it to any mature eleven year old and up.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
