The concept of the healing room is premised on the opportunity to be able to hear messages from dearly departed ones through a portal located in the corporate office of a non-profit organization. And that is where the skeptics come in. Non-profit? For such an elaborate and other-worldly experience? Well how is this entire “service” financed?
I loved this story, and I am impressed by the storyteller. The entire book is written from the perspective of two young adults – one non-conforming seventeen year old girl and one Latino college graduate. The tone is realistic, and the mortal imperfections of the main characters are not swept underneath the rug. The build-up was gradual and smooth, and the climax held my attention. The only criticism I have is that the later uncovered antagonists didn’t seem as sharp as they were portrayed to be in the earlier part of the book. Nonetheless, I got my fix of good vs. evil, and the victory of the unlikely heroes.
There are a few shockers dropped here and there, so I do have to mention that this book is for older teens, and of course the rest of us adults.
I received a review copy and I savored every reading moment I had with this book. Recommended.
