Becoming Indigo

By Tara Taylor, Lorna Schultz Nicholson




Hello. I am dropping in to say that I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! I hope you found some time to relax and enjoy yourself. I have some turkey soup on cooking and it smells delightful!!

This book was published by Hay House. I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest and fair review. I have to say that I found this book unusual. It is the story of a girl named Indigo and she is finding herself and her abilities. I didn’t know when I read it that it is a sequel to Through Indigo’s Eyes.


High school is finally over, and Indigo Russell is living with two of her best friends in the Glebe, an artsy, bohemian area in downtown Ottawa. It’s summertime, which means humid, restless nights. The apartment is making strange noises at all hours. Is it just her imagination, or is something more sinister at play? Meanwhile, Indie has no idea what she wants to do with her life. As close friends and classmates prepare to head off to university, she’s left wondering where to go—a task made all the more difficult as her thoughts are interrupted by weird voices. Who are these voices that keep talking to her? Angels, or villains? Is the apartment haunted . . . or is she? As she searches for answers, and attempts to control her supernatural abilities, Indie forms a close bond with nice-boy Paul. Not long after, Indie’s first love, John, comes back into her life, complicating everything. Fate leads her to Annabelle, a woman who shares her psychic gift and who may be the one to help her figure it all out. In the face of danger and heartache, Indie must learn to follow her intuition, listen to her inner guide, and discover who she should trust, to become the person she is meant to be (excerpt from Netgalley)

It has many supernatural elements. There is a ghost, a sort of exorcism, the reading of the cards, a ouija board and a woman who is like a good witch/ fortune-teller. I have to say that I found that this book encompassed many different and usually unlinked things. They are all woven into one book. Oh and there is also re-incarnation too. We go from all these elements to Indigo going to college to study theology. Ummm okay. I don’t really see the connection other than I guess she has chosen to use her abilities for good and to help people. A book with the struggle of a young woman to use her abilities for evil or for good. Maybe Indigo is supposed to be like a good witch? It is an eclectic mix of elements.

This book also is supposed to be based on a real person. I thought that it was a very different book, maybe a little hard to get into. I do think that it was appropriate for the teenage group who like vampires, new age and supernatural stuff. I give this one a 3 out of 5 stars.
