Book Review – Blues for Zoey – By Robert Paul Weston
I picked up this book on recommend from the manager at my local Chapters store, and was not disappointed. If you’re a fan of John Green’s Paper Towns, I’m sure you’ll like this book by Robert Paul Weston.
The main character Kaz, works at the Sit’N’Spin laundromat, saving every penny he earns for college. At least that’s what he tells people. He’s really saving his money for his sick mother who needs special medical care they can’t afford.
Through chance, Kaz meets Zoey. A quirky musical genius, who plays an instrument that resembles a homemade crucifix. As their relationship develops, you can tell there’s something Zoey is hiding. A shaded past? An underlying agenda? I won’t spoil it for you.
Robert Paul Weston has cleverly crafted a twist in this book that surprised even me. I give Blues for Zoey 4 out of 5 stars, and would recommend it to any fan of YA fiction who likes a surprise ending.
