Blood Wounds by Susan Beth Pfeffer

I thought Blood Wounds, was going to be a thriller but it really wasn't. It was more about the dynamics of a mixed family.

The characters aren't likable and I couldn't relate to any of them. This book covers many dark themes, murder, jealousy, depression, cutting and violence.

Blood Wounds is a quick, easy read but don't expect it to be as well developed and inters ting as Pfeffer's, Last Survivor's series.

Grade: C

Overview: [B&N]
Blood can both wound and heal . . .
Willa is lucky: She has a loving blended family that gets along. Not all families are so fortunate.
