Keeper of Infinity by Haley Weilmuenster
Do you believe in the afterlife? Is it someplace called Heaven, or possibly Home? Two teenagers meet upon their death in a place where they must decide their final destination. They come from the same hometown, but very different backgrounds. However, unbeknownst to them, there is a possibility their paths have crossed and the same people or events have touched each of their lives. Haley Weilmuenster has written this tale of two seemingly lost young souls who find each other under the strangest of circumstances.
As the story unfolds, providing the backdrop leading up to their meeting, the author weaves a masterful tale that leaves the reader cheering for a good outcome. Can love conquer all?
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
This book is very depressing, but in a good way. It makes you think and reflect about your life and what would be in your file cabinets when you get to Heaven, or Home as it's called in the book. The beginning of this book started off a little slow and weird for me. At first, I didn't like how the events were ordered, but towards the end of the story, everything starts making sense. The characters were decently written, and very strong characters. Both of the characters went through hell while they were on earth, but were brave enough to face the memories from it in death. I wish the author would have gone into a little more detail about Airyn's family life. Throughout the book, the author made it seem like her and her parents were close, but towards the end she comes home hungover, and they run out the door and don't even notice. It kind of made me think they might not have paid as much attention to her as she thought they did. I felt sorry for Trent and what he had to go through with his father. The ending left me a little confused as to which choice Airyn picked. I thought this was a great short read published by Dorrance Publishing. Fans of Ellen Hopkins and By the Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead by Julie Anne Peters will love this book.
I give Keeper of Infinity: 3/5.
