AQUA BLUE by Marian L. Thomas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The "30" Second Synopsis:
friendship that begins to unravel. A young man fleeing the tragic loss
of his mother. A romance that crosses the boundary of hatred and proves
that love is stronger than the color of skin. Find it all in, AQUA BLUE.
The Back Cover:

whether he will forgive or walk away.
As they each step foot into
the intoxicating city of New York, their dreams are standing before
them with open arms. Yet, in order to embrace the possibilities, they

To think I was going to give up on this at 20% it just floors me! Because seriously, WOW!! This was such an amazing book. After I got over whatever funk I was in I couldn't put this down.
It was quite amazing how there could be so much in such a short story. It had it all.
I mean how can you have multiple character and the story still make sense? You have 2 best friends running away to New York to find themselves an then you have a huge secret between 2 other characters that changes the lives of 3 people but ultimately changes 5 people. I know, crazy right? It kinda is but it all makes sense. This really had it all, love, hate, secrets, dreams coming true only to shatter at your feet.
The story is very fast paced. All the characters involved have a big part in the unfolding of the craziness that they called life.
A great read!
