Bec ist 15 und findet sich viel zu brav, zu angepasst und vernünftig – sie wäre gern wild und flippig, sie möchte endlich mal einen Jungen küssen und eine richtig tolle Party schmeißen.

In dem Sommer, als ihre Eltern für fünf Wochen in die USA reisen und sie und ihre Geschwister in der Obhut einer recht unkonventionellen Haushälterin zurückbleiben, wagt sie jede Menge Veränderungen. Sie färbt sich ihr Haar rot, wird plötzlich frech und macht den Mund auf. Sie beginnt ihre Freundinnen in neuem Licht zu sehen und verkracht und versöhnt sich mit Mrs Dempster, der Haushälterin.

Und sie verliebt sich und steht zu ihrer großen Verwirrung auf einmal zwischen zwei Jungs. Das ganze Kuddelmuddel ihres Lebens kommt ihr vor wie ein Knäuel von bunten Wollfäden. Sie beschließt das Knäuel zu entknoten, indem sie »dem Blau folgt« – ihre eigene Linie findet.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312342977, Paperback)

Life isn't neat and tidy. It's like a whole lot of balls of brightly colored wool thrown in a basket, with stray beginnings and endings and possibilities everywhere. Let's follow the blue.

Fifteen-year-old Bec has always been the good girl. Growing up with an eccentric celebrity chef mother and a father who suffers from depression, Bec is used to taking care of her two younger siblings and being labeled "the sensible one." But when Bec's parents decide to take a six-week tour of the U.S., she decides that she is sick of being responsible and is ready for some adventures of her own. She meets a new friend named Jaz, dyes her hair, wins money, throws her first party, and then there's the boy thing...
In this intoxicating novel by award-winning author and poet Brigid Lowry, Bec realizes that maybe she isn't so ordinary after all--and that sometimes it doesn't hurt to, as her mother would say, "lighten up and enjoy the ride."
