The Crossing by Serita Ann Jakes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is probably a 3.5...I had to keep reading to find out the answers. There are some very surprising happenings, especially at the end.
Claudia is still upset 10 years after the murder of her teacher friend BJ, who wouldn't be with the loved one dying in your arms! The murder has gone unsolved, why? When her husband reopens the case, she feels her world crashing down.
One of the other people on the bus was Casio, he was shot in the arm. He has many demons he deals with and is very abusive to his girlfriend Harper. Casio's Dad was also a policeman, and had been abusive to his Mother. His Mom disappeared about a month before the shooting, and he has felt abandoned ever since.
Love the dying girl BJ's thoughts as she lie dying on that bus. Descriptions of Angles waiting to hold her, hearing those around her and wanting to speak to them, but of course unable to.
I would recommend this book, but be ready for a roller coaster ride!
I received this book from the Publisher Waterbrook Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
