In The Many Shades of Indigo, N.B. Edge introduces the captivating and somewhat mysterious Indigo Adams, a beautiful teenage boy who grows up unlike most of his peers due, in large part, to his unfortunate upbringing by an abusive grandmother.

All Indigo wants is to feel love and affection. His wish comes true in his senior year of high school when this lonely boy finds acceptance amidst a group of friends and with several teachers. To them, he is an enigma, sheathed in an existence created by secrecy.

Has he finally found the connection he so craved throughout his life, only to lose it? Will his dream become a nightmare, not only for him, but also for those that seek to nurture him? The drama that is his life travels a crooked path enroute to its conclusion.
