I loved this book from beginning to end! It is listed as a YA book, but I think adults will like it as well. If you are a parent, you will find many issues you can discuss with your YA reader! Bravo to Casella for her first novel!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

THIN SPACE is the story of a boy who is lost. Not in the physical sense of the word, but in that emotionally crippling way only a tragic loss can deliver. The death of his twin brother has put Marsh in a bad place and he sees only one way to make himself whole again--find a thin space and make his wrong, right. He's secretive about his plans and his parents and fellow students look past his odd behavior and write it off as part of his grieving process. And then along comes Maddie, the new girl who may be just the person to help Marsh get what he so desperately seeks.
Can we talk about Marsh and Maddie for a minute? (Guess so. It's my review, after all. :) I freaking LOVE the way Casella wrote this relationship. This is not a romance novel, so don't expect a storyline that starts as one thing and then goes off into kissy-kissy territory. Marsh treats Maddie EXACTLY the way I would expect someone in his situation to treat a girl that has something that he so desperately wants. He's kind off a jerk about it, actually and you know what? It works.
Before I started reading this beautiful book, I read a review that said this book contained a twist. I went into this story believing that I would catch said twist and not be surprised by the ending. I analysed all the words, all the conversations, read into foreshadowing that may or may not be there and guess what? Totally did not see the twist. Don't even try to guess it. I'll bet you five licks of a tootsie pop that you won't guess it. It's brilliant.
And, oh! One last thing: You should probably grab a fuzzy red blanket to cuddle into while you read this one. I felt cold for most of it. Casella does almost TOO good of a job making you feel like you're in those frigid scenes with Marsh. *shivers*

An Unbelievably Intense Read!
This is powerful! This is haunting! This is why I love to read! Thin Space by Jody Casella is like being trapped in a dream, and until someone finds the way to pull you out, it goes on and on. Honestly, I have read this twice, it was that good, that intriguing and I picked up even more to like about it the second time around!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Grief, guilt and loss can blur our existence, warp our perspectives and cause us to block out the truth, while searching for unknowable answers, believing in a Thin Space between the living and the dead, something an elderly neighbor swore existed. Marshall, grieving over his guilt in the loss of his twin, undergoes a huge mental change that manifests itself in unusual and odd behavior. He needs to “talk” with his brother, make things right, but no one believes in the Thin Space, until Maddie comes along. Does it exist? Can Marshall lay his ghosts to rest? What about Maddie?
Jody Casella has packed a lot of story, strong characters and enough tear-jerking intensity into her writing, that you are almost sad to get to the last page, as I said, I’ve read this twice and can, without a doubt, see read number three on the horizon! Ms. Casella has created a fresh and deeply moving story that will stick with you long after the last page with its great pacing, well-developed characters and a touch of the supernatural!
