Today is the book birthday for a new contemporary romance!
Life post-graduation was supposed to see the launch of paisley-loving Jadyn’s art career, or at least an art gallery showing one of her watercolor paintings. Instead, this Pittsburgh native is locked into a low-paying, buttoned-up consultant position with an impossible boss. When another colleague is dismissed, Jadyn inherits extra workload, including the company’s biggest client. If she loses him, she’s fired.
Jadyn people-pleases her way through life, resulting in extra work opportunities and a community classroom of art students. But when two guys appear on her doorstep, she just might not be able to people-please her way out of this love triangle. At the end of the day, she can’t please everyone.
Then, because of a small spending problem, Jadyn is evicted from her apartment, and she must move in with her know-it-all sister. Jadyn needs to decide between a job transfer that would place her near her love interest, or a full-time art career with all its risks.
Stretched like canvas between responsibility and dreams, she must choose. Will practicality always win?

The Rainbow with Dull Colors’ speaks to the ‘Archie’ in all of us. Despite his sad self-image (compared to what he sees in his peers) he stumbles on the path to finding real joy in the way God made him. JJ Johnston shares that map through this ‘colorful’ story of self discovery. And just like with Archie, the rainbow with dull colors, God, in His Mercy, wants to show us exactly how special we are, too. ~Foundation of Jesus The Divine Mercy
The Rainbow with Dull Colors by J.J. Johnston is a beautiful little book that teaches children the importance of having confidence in how valuable they are to God, no matter what they look like or whether they are different from other children. Archie, a self-conscious rainbow up in heaven, is sad because he has very dull colors. The others glow brightly and are sure they are better suited to God’s work. They pick on him and laugh at him. God takes Archie on a tour of the world and explains that He doesn’t always use flashy things to speak to people. After comforting Archie, he explains that Archie was made this way deliberately for a reason and then He gives him a special mission.
What a charming book! With lovely illustrations that capture every emotion the rainbows are feeling and that children can sympathize with, The Rainbow with Dull Colors stood out to me as an excellent children’s book. Without being heavy-handed, J.J. Johnston builds a solid explanation for how God cares for those who feel underrated, in friendly language kids can understand. The parallel between Archie being discounted by other rainbows up in heaven and his mission, a shy little girl who is being picked on at school on earth, teaches kids in a nutshell that God understands—He isn’t remote. He sees everything and He cares. The message that God wants us to be proud of our individuality, even if it seems we don’t have what someone else does, is a great focus for the story. Archie tries to be someone he isn’t, but only by doing what God has required of him does he find true happiness.~Sarah Scheele for Readers’ Favorite
