The Blue Knight reveals problems in our society related to racism and bullying, which is an important topic that is currently at the forefront of many lives and is being discussed at great lengths around the world. The main character, a teenage boy named Owen, lives in a small village with his mother. He is chastised by everyone he encounters until the day he meets an unusual friend who lives in the mountains nearby. Both outcasts must gain each other’s trust and learn self-worth, mutual respect and tolerance. During their adventures, both friends learn to overcome the harshness of racism and hate while challenging others to do the same. This book will teach young readers how to find strategies and answers in their life that will help them to deal with these important issues productively and positively.
