I was excited to come across The Crossing by Serita Ann Jakes. I knew when I read the summary of the book, that it would be something I would enjoy. The book is about a shooting that takes place on a school bus 10 years prior injuring a star football player, Casio Hightower, killing head cheeleading coach BJ Remington and forever changing the life of Claudia, a student and cheerleader that had a very close relationship with Remington. The story is set ten years later where Claudia's husband, who happens to be a lawyer, re-opens the case in hopes of giving his wife some closure and Casio Hightower, who is now a police officer, seems to be dealing with post traumatic stress disorder. The Crossing is a great portrayal of what life might be like for the victims of such a tragedy, even ten years later. I thought Jakes did a great job of not trying to sugar coat things. Sometimes life just doesn't always have a happy ending. This is a great read for someone who enjoys a good drama with a little bit of suspense.
