Praise for Touch Blue

"The tight-knit community and lobster-catching details make for a warm, colorful environment. This is a feel good story about letting go of your expectations and accepting the good things already in front of you." — Booklist

"Lord’s sophomore effort about a Maine island girl with a big heart who pays a bit too much attention to her superstitions and doesn’t always make the best decisions will not disappoint fans of her Newbery Honor-winning Rules. Realistic characters, humor and a charming setting make this a great choice for collections of all sizes." — Kirkus
