The Crossing by Serita Jakes

The Crossing
By Serita Jakes

Reviewed by Martha Artyomenko

Product Description (From book cover)

In 2000, a horrible unsolved crime is committed on a Texas school bus. At the time, Claudia Campbell was the beautiful head cheerleader, a hopeful girl who idolized her slain teacher. Now ten years later, Claudia’s secret life threatens to destroy her marriage and possibly her very life.
Casio Hightower, now a prominent member of the community and a police officer, was a superstar quarterback and tapped by several colleges as their next golden boy. Casio’s rages are tearing him apart and are close to landing him in jail.

The only way to move forward with their lives is to readdress the crime of their past, with the help of God and his perfect grace.

My Review:
When the students on a bus are witnesses to horrific murder in front of them on a school bus, it sticks with them. Now, many years later, when Claudia’s husband decides to look into the case, Claudia is torn up by the memories.
It was a hard story, showing how trauma can effect people differently in their lives. As each character deals with solving the mystery of the murder, will it turn out to be one of themselves?

I enjoyed this story, but it was a little hard to get into to begin, but once you started, you finished it!
