About the Book
Alex Lane is a hardened criminal. A misfit. A freak. When he is released from a juvenile detention center at the age of eighteen, he doesn’t know what he will do with his life. Alex does not want to return to a life of crime, but he is not sure how to change. A criminal is all he has ever been. And thus he begins his journey. Alex finds himself living with his brother and his family, a family he does not know. He also finds friends who eagerly accept him into their group of misfits. On the outside, everything seems to be going his way, but inside, Alex struggles to leave his criminal life behind. He struggles with change and with the realization that in a life absent of crime, he must give up control. He must learn that there is more to living a normal life than just choosing not to be a criminal again. Much more.
This is a painful, poignant, and engaging story of a young convict, Alex Lane. While one follows this interesting character, there are sweet, humorous, and somber moments littered across the story. Some dreams are made, others, crashed; true friends albeit a band of misfits, emerge; hearts are broken, and then healed; mistakes are made, but ultimately, lives are changed for the better.
Beyond the Skyline is a metaphorical masterpiece of literary work written the solemn objective of portraying the truth of the power of God which is capable of changing the life of even the worst person, and this piece is executed in such a way that it brands the heart of the reader for life, possibly causing even a paradigm shift. If one ever doubted that people can change, Beyond the Skyline just might change your mind.
Overall, this is an excellent work by Brody Lane Gregg.
