The Book of Jer3miah by Luisa M. Perkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: LDS Fiction ~ YA
Book Description: A college freshman, Jeremiah Whitney, accepts the undertaking to protect a mysterious Mesoamerican box. When Jeremiah's parents are mysteriously murdered, Jeremiah learns that he is the target of a frightening conspiracy. Every facet of his life is called into question, and now he must uncover the truth about the box, the conspiracy, and his very identity.
My thoughts: Jeremiah is a young man attending college. He has two great parents who love him, a roommate who is his friend, and he is anticipating the time he can go on an LDS mission. Life is on track for Jeremiah.
His eighteenth birthday changes everything. He finds that he is the target of a conspiracy. The exact nature of the threat or where it is coming from is a mystery. He only knows that those he loves the most have been taken from him. Locked in grief he learns of his destiny, the keeper of an ancient relic that is entrusted in his care. His premonitions will help guide him in decisions and who to trust.
I enjoyed reading about Jeremiah and his experiences. He has very unique friends who kept the story funny at times and interesting. There is plenty of action and a little bit of romance. It should appeal to both young men and women on up.
