The Crossing

I recently read The Crossing by Serita Jakes which tells the story of an unsolved murder which occurred on a school bus after a local football game. The effects of that shooting are felt by many, and the book looks at what has happened to them. This includes a football player who attempted to stop the shooting, a cheerleader who witnessed the murder of her coach, and the husband of the cheerleader who reopens the case since there was never any resolution to who guilty of the murder.

This book was a great mystery, which is not the type of book I normally read, but I really enjoyed it. The mystery was just the right amount, and I liked how the book focused on how the tragic event changed the lives of three different people. These characters were all relatable, and I found myself sympathizing with the problems they were facing due to the tragedy they saw. I would highly recommend this book to my friends and family, but I would probably recommend that it be read by an older audience.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Waterbrook Press book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
