We made it to Friday woohoo and its is the Canada day long weekend for me . So will be having lots of good food and friends and family around . Oh and lots of reading while I hangout on the patio. Today I have a book that will tear at your heart strings . UPON BROKEN WINGS by E,L Reedy .

                           BOOK BLURB 

"Brilliant and Moving. Highly Recommended."

Bound by a dark act of hate and despair, high school freshmen, Andrew and Kiernan, learn that their untimely deaths did not bring an end to their pain, but only began the suffering of those left behind. While his lost memories return, Andrew must master seemingly impossible feats, both spiritual and physical.

As a dark spirit stalks Kiernan through the borderlands of life and death, he must also face the pain his actions have caused his loved ones. To save both their souls, Andrew must convince Kiernan to return to life and open his eyes to the love and beauty which had always been there.

                         MY REVIEW 
     This was a heart wrenching book about what happens to those we love after someone has taken their own life.. Andrew a sweet young autistic boy who has tragically lost everyone he loved and just couldn't take it anymore and the friend that he had and just didn't know it yet . Kiernan who both tragically take their own lives .  To save both of their souls Andrew must help Kiernan fight for his life and open his eyes and come back to the love that all around him 

    The characters in this story are so well written and complex . There are actually quite a few characters in this story .  Andrew is a sweet boy who is basically locked in his own world and has lost everyone who loved him .  Kiernan has come and got into Andrew's isolation and becomes more then friends with him. Together they will fight betrayal and through ones suicide the other will come out stronger . 

   This book is a heavy read , I actually had to put it down a couple of time because I needed a breath and wipe a tear away . I know from the other books the authors have written that you will be taken on a very emotional roller coaster ride .  The characters are well written and you can't help but care for them . There are few spots where I felt like it was confusing and a little bit repetitive  and the heaviness of the story kind of took away from the story . Sometimes less is more . Over all I did enjoy this story and would recommend it for a reading challenge . Check it out
