I Know When You're Going to Die by Michael J. Bowler Genre: YA Mystery, Thriller
A man I consider a true hero is Father Gregory Boyle, S.J., founder of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles. Homeboy Industries provides jobs, educational and psychological services to gang members who seek to move beyond the lifestyle. As assistant chaplain for decades at one of the three juvenile halls in LA County, I worked closely with Father Greg during his monthly visits to the hall. I’ve also been to Homeboy Industries on numerous occasions and have read both of Father Greg’s books. This man is the definition of “humble,” though like any truly humble person, he would never use that word to describe himself. He’s dedicated his life to some of the worst neighborhoods in the country and toward helping the most marginalized people in Los Angeles.
Leonardo Cantrell is a painfully shy sixteen-year-old who cannot look people in the eye. One night while he’s volunteering at a homeless shelter, an old man forces eye contact and gives Leo the power to see Death.
His best, and only, friend—J.C. Rivera—thinks this new power is cool until Leo accidentally looks into J.C.’s eyes and “sees” his murder, a murder that will occur in less than two weeks. Stunned and shaken, the two boys sift through clues in Leo’s “vision” in a desperate effort to find the killer and stop him before he can strike.
Aided by feisty new-girl-at-school, Laura, the boys uncover evidence suggesting the identity of the murderer. However, their plan to trap the would-be killer goes horribly awry and reveals a truth that could kill them all.
