The Crossing
Oh my goodness! This is an awesome book! I love how it was written and it kept my attention, so that I didn't even want to turn it down.

On the back it says:
On the way home from a football game, a decade earlier, a masked gunman opened fire on a Texas school bus. Cheerleading coach B.J. Remington was killed, but her murderer was never found. Claudia, who had a close friendship with the young, spirited teacher, constantly relives the anguish of that day, caught in one moment in time. When her husband, the assistant district attorney, becomes determined to uncover the mystery of that tragedy, the secrets buried over the years threaten to tear their family apart.
Officer Casio Hightower will never forget the day his dreams were destroyed. A star quarterback with a promising future, Casio was on top of the world—until one bullet changed everything. He is eager to help Victor Campbell find B.J.’s killer, the man who shot him. Maybe solving the case will help silence the demons driving Casio to hurt the woman he loves.
Each chapter opens in italics with BJ's thoughts as she is dying and then the story continues. I never would have thought that I would so enjoy a book written in this format, but I loved it. Until the very end, you don't find out who the killer is. It keeps you guessing all the way and I like that about a story as well.

It is also a story of love and forgiveness and there is something everyone can take away from it.

The only downer is all the misspelled words. There were enough of them, that it started to bug me, but I still loved the story. Ü I received a copy that is not yet for sale and hope there is going to be another spell check before it is published for the public. So if misspelling doesn't bother you, you will love this.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
