Reflections

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath

Reflections by Clifton Kenny


A humble youth. A paranormal gift. A haunting history. In 1974, Shane Sullivan is a quiet, gangly teen in the suburbs of Boston who discovers he can explore the ancestral memories of a person’s lineage. Confused and frightened, his pursuit of this supernatural ability takes him down a dark and unexpected road of history long forgotten —or rewritten by historians.
With the aid of his two friends, Jimmer and Paige, he contemplates a more ruthless version of the reality he thought he knew. Shane finds himself on a shocking journey into a celestial world of truth that puts him face-to-face with his own destiny.
Filled with ghostly, historic discoveries of good versus evil, Reflections is a faithful, mystical tale about one teen’s unique coming of age.

My review:
An interesting read that kept me on my toes for the entire duration of the story! I love history and the ideas this author presents in his story are fascinating! Shane, the protagonist, is a young man in eighth grade, who has a paper route every morning. From the first chapter, the author introduces the conflict this boy will face and the excitement and mystery behind it. Great way to pull a reader right in!

I think anyone who enjoys spiritual, science and history all wrapped up in one book, would love this story.
