10 years. That’s how long it’s been. That’s how long it’s been since Claudia was free.
10 years ago, Claudia’s life changed. No, 10 years ago, Claudia’s life unravelled. Funny thing is, it’s only now that it’s beginning to show……
10 years ago, a school bus was stopped at a railroad crossing, and the lives of the people on the bus- mostly highschoolers- were changed forever. BJ, the young cheerleading coach and best friend to Claudia, was murdered.
Football star Casio was shot in the arm. Principal’s daughter Georgie gave CPR while waiting for the paramedics who were stranded on the other side of the train tracks by the long freight train. Cheerleader Claudia held BJ, sobbing and willing her to live.
10 years later, Claudia’s husband, Victor, is the Assistant District Attorney. He sets out to try to solve this cold case, hoping to bring closure to the community and help ease Claudia’s escalating panic attacks. It’s a race against the clock as Claudia’s emotional state and their marriage begin to collapse.
Written from a variety of perspectives (including the dying BJ), this book definitely keeps you guessing. In addition to the main story line, sub-plots totally, delightfully entangled all of these characters. Serita Jakes is absolutely one of my new favorite authors. I will definitely be looking for more of her books and recommending her to my friends!!
Because there were a few things that were a little bit confusing, I give this 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
