The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti

Finally a YA novel! I know it’s been awhile.

18 year old Indigo works as a waitress in a downtown Seattle diner and lives with her mom, brother and sister. She’s a free soul who doesn’t want to attend college and is happier tooling around in her boyfriend’s renovated Mustang, Bob Weaver. Then Indigo receives a $2.5 million tip. Will the money change her?

I was thoroughly charmed by Indigo. The one silly thing was her absolute revulsion at cigarettes, which I thought odd at first, but then turned into a major plot device.

Also this paragraph stuck with me: “He put his arms around me. . .Because that’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable. And right there I learn something very simple and fundamental about love. That it is there or it is not there. That some of biggest troubles probably come when we try to convince ourselves it is there when it isn’t, or that it isn’t there when it is.” (pg. 292)
