God Blessed the Broken Road Series (book one Mariza) by Crystal Cattabriga:

What if God could send you an Angel...
     David had always felt at a young age he had a purpose in life. He believed that he could touch people’s hearts through love, compassion, and his faith in God; until one day when tragedy strikes leaving him heartbroken. Through time David’s life begins to spiral out of control. Feeling empty inside he turns to drugs and alcohol as a way of coping. As he quickly falls into a dark place in his life, his sister Mariza watches over him. Knowing David has Fallen from Grace, Mariza is determined to save him, but will it be too late?

    This is the first short story in this series. In each book the main character will tie into the next book

My review: 
    Crystal writes in the Children's Books, Young Adult, and Religion & Spirituality genres. This isn't my "usual" genre to read but her book Saving Bobby is on my Kindle TBR list so when Crystal got a hold of me to read and review this book I gladly jumped at the chance. God Blessed the Broken Road Series are  short books (print length is 106 pages). While reading it it seems to be much longer though. 
    So much happens in this book about a brother and sister on a road trip together. Mariza is David's older sister. For brother and sister they are very close friends. She is taking this road trip to bring him out of a depression and back to his faith. Until tragedy strikes on there trip. 
    This book reads like a true story. A very sad true story. But in the end it was Mariza who helped David move on and start to live again knowing there was a purpose to his life. This is a very inspirational book for for teens and adults alike. A very enjoyable read.
