For Kellie Brooks, family has always been a tough word to define. Combine her hippie mom and tattooist stepdad, her adopted overachieving sister, her younger half brother, and her tough-love dad, and average Kellie’s the one stuck in the middle, overlooked and impermanent. When Kellie’s sister finally meets her birth mother and her best friend starts hanging with a cooler crowd, the feeling only grows stronger.

But then she reconnects with Oliver, the sweet and sensitive college guy she had a near hookup with last year. Oliver is intense and attractive, and she’s sure he’s totally out of her league. But as she discovers that maybe intensity isn’t always a good thing, it’s yet another relationship she feels is spiraling out of her control.

It’ll take a new role on the school newspaper and a new job at her mom’s tattoo shop for Kellie to realize that defining herself both outside and within her family is what can finally allow her to feel permanent, just like a tattoo.
Since I like to be honest in all of my reviews, I'm not going to hide my thoughts on this book. I didn't think I'd love this book as much as I did. Nor did I expect Ink is Thicker than Water to be full of so much heart and realistic aspects of life. While I thought the summary gave everything away, I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and turns of this book. This is my first book by Amy Spalding and I know it won't be my last.
