Goodreads.com Description: “A tragedy realized. A boy displaced. His fight to restore his sanity. Can Gavin’s mind be resurrected?

As a three month resident of the Pembroke Psychiatric Center following the dismantling and tragic events leading up to the school shooting, Gavin Ferguson thinks he is well on his way to healing until his inner self takes a detour leaving him a relative stranger in his own mind.

Will Gavin be able to find his way back to himself and return home with his family and friends, or is resurrecting his mind beyond the bounds of possibility?

*Resurrecting Gavin is a companion novelette in the Evan series, following the novelette Saving Gavin and precedes the full length novel, Inventing Evan.”

My Review

I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Resurrecting Gavin by Venessa Kimball was outstanding! I loved how Gavin found his strength and gained control of his existence. This novelette is the happy ever after moment he deserved. He’s in control and has a blossoming relationship. I was so proud of him.

This book did leave me with some worries, however. I’m worried about what is happening with Brody, Evan and Mrs. Ferguson. Hopefully, all my worries will be put to rest when the second book in the trilogy comes out.
