The Book Woman's Daughter by Kim Michele Richardson


She's sixteen and her parents have been jailed because her mother has a blue tint.  It's a genetic deformity passed down by ancestors.  The laws where they live forbid them to marry but her parents did.

Sourcebooks sent me an ARC to read and review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

She goes to stay with an old lady she loves, who becomes her guardian.  But before long, she passes away.  Then she hides because they want to put her in reform school until she's 21.

Lie isn't easy for her.  Boys want her; she doesn't want them.  She applies for a job like her mother had, delivering books to those out in the country.  She gets it, but her troubles aren't over yet...
