Book Review of A Life of Death by Weston Kincade

Alex Drummond is a troubled high school senior with a checkered past, a broken home, and a surprising ability. When he touches items that murder victims held in their final moments, Alex relives the events in gruesome detail, seeing what they saw, thinking their thoughts, and even feeling what they felt. But who will believe a troubled teen, especially when the murders are so close to home and might reveal skeletons hidden for hundreds of years? Join Alex as he struggles to find his destiny, understand love, solve the mysterious murders within his small home town, and speak for victims who can no longer speak for themselves.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*

First off this book is very well written. The pain Alex goes through is evident and as a reader you can't help but feel for him. I would venture to say this book is complex, in that you have Alex's home life as well as this ability he has to see past murders, mixing all around this troubled kid.

This book touches on many topics that are not talked about enough. Abuse and how our system can't always help every kid. It's frustrating and you want to just jump through the book and help Alex! Any author who can make  you have those feelings is doing the right thing. I'm glad I read this book, though at times it was painful to read. I am glad I was given the chance to read this book! Check it out for yourself.
