The Crossroads of Logan Michaels by James Roberts follows the life of Logan and his family. Logan is a star, both at baseball and basketball, and thinks the world is at his fingertips. Nicknamed ‘Ice’ by his peers, with parents he adores and a brother who looks up to him, for Logan, life cannot get any better. But suddenly and unexpectedly, Logan hears some news that changes his life forever. Devastated as his family falls apart, Logan finds himself following a path he never thought he would tread and leaving behind all he held dear and all his dreams. His future that once seemed so full of promise and so exciting is but a distant memory. Only his mother’s love, and his love for her, can save him.
This is an amazing piece of writing. The author, James Roberts, has managed to encompass so much emotion in the story, taking the reader to the depths of despair and back as they follow Logan’s journey into self-destruction. The characters are believable and portrayed with such passion that it is impossible to stop reading, as the reader wills Logan to see the error of his ways and to open his eyes to the destruction around him. The story portrays the utter desolation and hopelessness that can be caused by drugs and alcohol, both things that can take over not only a person’s mind but their very soul. No-one can read this to the very end and not be moved. Tissues will be needed. Not only is this a moving story, but it makes the reader see those around them in a new light and reinforces the importance of family and love for one another. A sad, but moving and at times inspirational book that should be read by every young person setting out on their life’s journey.
