This was a great little mystery with interesting characters. I loved Jay's voice, he was charming, slightly geeky and a whiz computer hacker. Although narrated by Jay, the story is inter-dispersed with emails, entries from Nicole's journal and psychiatric notes giving more depth to the story. I also liked the fact that neither Jay or Nicole were perfect, both had physical and emotional traumas which made them more realistic and likeable. Although there was a slow, gentle romance throughout "Burning Blue" the book was predominantly a mystery thriller and it was difficult to guess who was behind the acid throwing until it was finally revealed. Overall, a very enjoyable story about friendship and the meaning of true beauty. ( )

Nicole Castro is by far the most beautiful girl in school, and enormously popular. Jay Nazarro, nicknamed Spaceman for his public seizures, is a quiet loner and computer hacker. After Nicole is disfigured when someone throws battery acid in her face, Jay is determined to figure out who did it because the police don't seem to be capable. Jay uses his impressive hacking skills to work his way through several suspects, and is surprised to find that Nicole is very down to earth and sympathetic to his siezures. A mystery that leads readers to question every character as a suspect, this novel will likely find a large audience. ( )

How far would you go for love, beauty, and jealousy?

When Nicole Castro, the most beautiful girl in her wealthy New Jersey high school, is splashed with acid on the left side of her perfect face, the whole world takes notice. But quiet loner Jay Nazarro does more than that--he decides to find out who did it. Jay understands how it feels to be treated like a freak, and he also has a secret: He's a brilliant hacker. But the deeper he digs, the more danger he's in--and the more he falls for Nicole. Too bad everyone is turning into a suspect, including Nicole herself.

Award-winning author Paul Griffin has written a high-stakes, soulful mystery about the meaning--and dangers--of love and beauty.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:24:58 -0400)

When beautiful, smart Nicole, disfigured by acid thrown in her face, and computer hacker Jay meet in the school psychologist's office, they become friends and Jay resolves to find her attacker.
