THE BLOOD BETWEEN US is a dramatic, suspenseful novel that ultimately explores the role of family in adolescence. Protagonist Adrien has been forced to contend with his fiercely competitive sister, Grace, for his entire life. But when he receives news that his adoptive parents have died in a lab accident, the fragile bonds between them shatter and they separate for years. After being forced to return to the same boarding school, Adrien begins to suspect Grace’s involvement in their parents deaths, and becomes determined to discover the truth. This story was both fast paced and realistic, with enough character development to provide authenticity and depth and enough suspense to keep the plot interesting. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a realistic mystery.
