Review: Blood & Water

Blood & Water Blood & Water by Katie O'Rourke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Delilah finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her, she doesn't know what to do. One impulsive mistake later, and she's on a flight to Tucson where her brother lives. David is there raising his daughter. While Delilah is there, she meets David's friends and sees what kind of a life they have all built for themselves, and what she could have once she decides what to do next.

This is a very real novel, not letting any of the characters escape the real world for a second. They are flawed, they are confused, but they do find some sort of contentment or happiness in where they are, or where they are headed. The key takeaway from what these characters go through is not how they have to suffer through something, but the friends that turn into a chosen family when they need each other's support. While all of the different points of view were a little hard to keep track of at first, the book turned out to be a great snapshot of ordinary life that resonates with readers.
