Remembering blue, by Connie May Fowler.

Came out of the mists od lurkwood to respond.

The only one I can think of is a well read childrens book here called Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell. But a quick look over at Amazon reveals 400 plus thousand, with 93 thousand alone listed as fiction! I didn't delve further - but interesting all the same.

A wonderful little "blue" book is The Blue Castle by Lucy Maude Montgomery.
Although best known for Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maude's Blue Castle is a little gem.
