    8. This book was just so meh The central relationship, the brotherhood between Jakub and Link, was so poorly developed I just didn t care And caring about that was literally the only reason anyone would read this book If I wanna read about gangs and teen angst I m just gonna pick up The Outsiders again.

    9.

    11. Blood Brothers is a story that will probably reminds you that your actions will always have consequences For the best or the worst.And I deeply liked this book Of course, it wasn t perfect For example, I found the beginning a little bit slow But I ended up loving the characters and the story Blood brothers is painful but strong and it definitely worth it Thanks to Netgalley Dundurn for this arc in return for a honest review.

    12. I really liked this story, but it was a double perspective You got to see life through both characters eyes and the lessons they learned My only problem with this is that I only liked Jakub, his sections even made Link likable.3 stars

    13. i would read this a thousand times and then some it was truly amazing, and shows that even though it may not be the happiest ending, it was the right way to end things defiantly recommend

    14. I feel like the characters were well developed and I was truly interested in their stories There was never a slow moment because you could sense the danger lurking.

    15. Blood Brothers is a gritty look into the life of two boys caught up in the events in their gang infested neighbourhood Jakub and Lincoln are best friends and love to spend their time making graffiti art on local buildings However, their love for each other is tested on may levels Jakub is given an opportunity to attend a high end private school and Lincoln begins to hang around in the gang house where his older brother is the local boss Colleen Nelson does a fantastic job of bringing her charact [...]

    16. This book was alright It didn t stand out to me, and I found the characters to be very annoying However the story was very realistic, and displayed the unfortunate situations that children in lower income areas find themselves The writing was also very simple, but that is what i have come to expect from most young adult literature Overall, I give the book two out of five stars, with the ease of reading being it s greatest strength, and the insightfulness being it s weakest strength.
