Thicker Than Water

December 16, 2010 | Comments: 0 | Views: 83

I am really excited to get to start this, as a writer and a disturbed lover of books there is nothing more then I adore then sharing that joy with you guys.

And so we bring unto you, the Staff Picks Book Selection.

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of relaxing in a hotel with my mom and our puppy, *damn near full grown dog Whalley* and since we did not take part in the spa or the gym, *as if* I decided to read. Mom had brought me this book called Thicker Than Water by Carla Jablonski. At first I was thrilled, a new vampire book sweet, I love them as anyone at Black Bond Books in Surrey Central can tell you I inhale vampire novels like most normal people inhale air.

Unfortunately there are a lot of great novels out there that BB just doesn't have yet, *mainly because they haven't been written yet* Thicker than Water is not actually a vampire novel, it's a lifestyle novel.

In this book we follow the young impressionable Kia as she delves into the vampire subculture, into the world of Goth and beyond whilst trying to deal with her dying mother, her absentee father, and friends that just don't get it, no matter how hard they try.

It's a truly touching story, Kia is a cutter, a Goth and a lost teenager, although Carla is a little bit older then her teens, she has certainly managed to open up the world of Goth and self mutilation.

This is a book is definitely a good read for any parent, who may be un-certain or un-aware of what their kid may be going through. It isn't a how to guide on how to raise your Gothic child; this is it a truly touching story, and if you take it for what it is, it just may help you understand your teen a bit better.

I give this book 5 star, reads for a kid, but knowledge for the ages, well done!
