Thicker Than Water is a paranormal YA but the paranormal stuff develops in the last third of the book which I found really interesting. Usually the paranormal stuff is kind of in your face right from the get go. The first two thirds of the book were about getting to know the characters on a really personal level. I think developing this connection, particularly with the main male character Thomas is pretty important; you’ll understand why when you read the book.
Oh and the emergence of the paranormal stuff was so well done – it had me really questioning the feelings I’d developed for Thomas in particular. Was he a good guy or had he fooled us?
Thicker Than Water is an easy read and is perfect for when you want something quick but engaging. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
