Indigo Blue is an inspirational book about fate, friendship and finding yourself, written by the 2011 Young Australian of the Year, and the youngest person to sail non-stop around the world, Jessica Watson. Indigo Blue follows the story of a young girl in year twelve, named Alex, who had recently moved from her home in Sydney, to a small coastal town in Queensland, compelled to live with her loud, wild aunt, Robin. Alex begins feeling like she doesn’t fit in, like she’s a fish out of water, so she finds a way to escape, she buys a boat, Indigo Blue. Soon after she starts repairing the damaged boat, she meets a mysterious boy named Sam...

Indigo Blue falls into the realistic, adventure, fiction genre. I would recommend this book to anyone aged 10 - 15. This book is a captivating story that will reel you in and won't let go until you’ve turned the very last page.
