Received review copy from NetGalley for honest review.
Streaks of Blue begins with Nikki and her friend Candace going to spend the night under the stars on a hiking trip. On this trip Nikki has a very strange dream that makes her want to do what it was trying to tell her. Basically become friends with Adam before he and his friend decide to shoot up the school and kill people. Nikki takes a huge risk when she goes back to school by doing everything she can to become his friend. But Adam isn't so sure how to be her friend especially when he's already made a commitment to do something horrible at school. Nikki however isn't going to give up no matter Adam does..
This story is different from any story I've ever read. I loved Nikki. She was an awesome character, and I really respected her bravery in this book. I also really liked Adam even though he was pretty messed up. I felt like these two started an awesome friendship. And this book really does show how hard it is to be a teenager, and lot of the really hard things in life no one wants to see. I loved how the author portrayed everything in the book. The only thing that I wish would have happened is Nikki and Adam would have become more than friends. But alas that didn't happen but it was still a really good book! Kudos to the author for doing so well on such a hard topic!
