Blue Squared

Written by Luna Orchid

The unnamed narrator of this verse novel is an adolescent girl who lives in Hong Kong.

Like many teenagers, she struggles with body image problems, which, in her case, manifests in eating disorders and self-loathing, denial and depression, and affect her interpersonal relationships, including with her family members and her friends. Blue Squared is unflinchingly honest in its examination of adolescence and its associated challenges, but it is also a sensitive and beautifully-worded portrayal of one girl’s struggle to continue living despite (and, perhaps, because of) everything and everyone.
