Small Blue Thing was definitely an interesting read. It’s set in England which is a really nice change from all the American settings and language.
Alex just a seventeen-year-old girl living her life (and going through her exams) when she finds a bracelet that allows her to see people who drowned in the River Fleet but have become Dirges – similar to ghosts. She quickly falls in love with the mysterious and good-looking Dirge, Callum, but because of their differences their romance isn’t easy.
The story occasionally moved a bit too quickly and could be confusing at times but all in all it was an enjoyable read with likeable (and really unlikeable!) characters, a good plot, an awesomely disturbing love interest and great malicious villains. I give it 6 ½ out of 10.
