The Raven Boys Themes
One of the primary themes running through the novel is relationships. The novel reveals that even the individuals that make up a family have different relationships among the family members. For example, Blue and her mother only have each other because Blue doesn't know who her father is.
In spite of this, Blue has conjured up a vision of who she believes her father is as a person and the relationship they would have together. Additionally, the mother -daughter relationship Blue and Maura have is unconventional. Maura doesn't tell Blue what to do, but rather allows Blue to make her own decisions. Additionally, Persephone, Calla and Orla are often part of the discussion when it comes to making decisions about the family, household and Blue.
