This is the compelling story of two boys, one white and one blue, who live in a small town in the North Georgia mountains in 1963. Trouble starts when the boys find a dead baby whose body has been abandoned in the town garbage dump. As the narrator of the tale, the boy Buddy runs for help. His best friend, Early, a gentle boy with blue skin, who is descended from the Blue People of Troublesome Creek, takes that dead baby in his hands and conjures the infant back to life. This miracle ignites a firestorm of controversy and Early becomes known as Blue Jesus, the blue boy with the power to heal. Colorful and honest, with humor, heartbreak, and ultimate redemption, Blue Jesus is the story of friendship, family, faith, and the power in a commonality of differences.--Provided by the publisher.
