Friendship isn’t always easy…

Natalie is different from the other kids in Dreenie’s fifth-grade class. She comes to school in a wheelchair. She always wears a knitted hat. And she’s allowed to bring her puppy to class. The kids in the class call Natalie “Bluish” because her skin is tinted blue from chemotherapy.

Dreenie is fascinated by Bluish—and a little scared of her, too. She watches Bluish and writes about her in her journal. Slowly, the two girls become good friends. But Dreenie still struggles with Bluish’s illness. Bluish is weak and frail, but she also wants to be independent. How do you act around a girl like that?

This book was very inspirational, I recommend this book to everyone. It makes you feel grateful for who you are and what you have. Both objects and things, and family and friends.

Good but sad story.

This is the story of overcoming differences and true friendship. The main character, Dreenie, is drawn to Natalie (aka. Bluish). At first it is because she gets to bring a puppy to school. Then Dreenie begins to keep a secret journal completely about her interactions with Bluish. It is heart warming to how Dreenie goes from simply being fascinated with Bluish to developing a deep friendship. Dreenie even promote change in her classmates feelings and ideas about Bluish. They all begin to see Bluish as a person and not the blue looking girl in the wheel chair. At the end Dreenie does the most selfless thing by giving Bluish her journal. I really like this book. It made me sad at times to think about a young child having to deal with leukemia while trying to have a normal life. Dreenie and Natalie are both strong girls and very much alike. It's easy for me to see how such a strong friendship developed.

Reading "Bluish," I kept feeling as though I was reading a bizarre abridgement - all the extraneous portions of a novel, with the actual plot and most of the character development removed. This is supposed to be a great novel about a developing friendship, but there's no explanation given for Dreenie's progression from a detached fascination with Bluish, to an active horror of her, to suddenly being best buddies. Bluish is the "ailing friend" stock character, passive and dull, with no personality or depth beyond her illness. And are we really supposed to believe that a girl with cancer could come to school for several weeks, or even months, before the teacher decides to go to the trouble of explaining the disease to the class and answering their questions?

Unless you like unsympathetic characters, unrealistic conversations, and an undeveloped plot, steer clear of this one.

"Bluish" is a novel by Virginia Hamilton, a prolific and multiple award-winning author of books for young readers. "Bluish" tells the story of Dreenie, a young girl who attends a magnet school in New York City with her brainy (but annoying) younger sister, Willie, and their eccentric friend Tuli. When a pale-skinned, apparently ill girl in a wheelchair joins her class, Dreenie is fascinated by her. The girl is nicknamed "Bluish" due to her bluish complexion. Dreenie begins a diary documenting her evolving relationship with Bluish.
"Bluish" is a gentle, moving novel about overcoming fear of someone who is different. The book is a hopeful celebration of childhood friendship. A nice touch is the fact that entries from Dreenie's journal are interspersed between the chapters of the novel. The book also offers an interesting perspective on the multicultural, multifaith world of NYC schoolkids; there's even a little primer on the celebration of Kwanzaa. Overall, an impressive effort from Hamilton.

Bluish is the name other kids give to Natalie Winburn. Her skin is so pale and she is so sick that the veins show through, causing her to be bluish. She arrives at her NYC public school in a wheelchair and a knit toboggan, holding the puppy she is allowed to bring to school (this is like no school I've ever worked in).

Bluish's mother isn't thrilled by the nickname her friends Dreenie and Tuli give her. She interprets it as a combination of Black and Jewish, and regards it as derogatory. Only when Dreenie explains the name does she understand, but she still wants her daughter to be called by her true name.

When Bluish knits toboggans for the entire class, the students are more accepting of her and she becomes something of a mascot, to be taken care of and coddled.

Bluish was hard to read. I got stuck on it for over a week because it was uninteresting. I did not think the Bluish character was well written. She came off as bland and unsympathetic. Tuli seemed self-absorbed and uninteresting as well. I was disappointed because Virginia Hamilton is usually a fine writer.

Bluish is the story of a young girl, Dreenie who lives in New York City. She lives with an annoying little sister and an almost more annoying best friend, Tuli. The book tells the story of these three girls befriending a girl at school who no one likes. The kids call her Bluish. She sits alone in a wheelchair when she comes to school and talks to no one. she has no hair. Only hats. And she is so sickly pale her skin has a blue tint. At first the girls fear her but through the story they accept her as one of their own.

This book Virginia Hamilton is written very choppy. It jumps around a lot and doesn't stick to one theme. It is very repetitive and at times I even thought I was rereading a page. i would not reccommend this book.
Bluish, is unknown to everyone. She sits alone in a corner like a ghost and watches. Everyone is scared of her because the her skin has a bluish tint. But Dreenie the most unlikely of all decides to befriend Bluish. At first when she tries to talk to bluish it doesn't work. But later on Bluish and dreenie form a strong, unlikely friendship. It turns out Bluish is blue because she has cancer and chemo tainted her skin. That's also why she has no hair only hats. And why she isn't at school much. Bluish gets sick a lot. Bluish finds her real name is Natalie. And through a rough series of events Dreenie brings bluish the most wonderful gift ever. Hope.

This story has potential but it is confusing. It jumps around a lot and makes it hard for the reader to understand. However the storyline and the moral are equally beautiful. I recommend this book to anyone 12 and up.
