Michael Gesellchenabout this book: The Resurrectionist follows a teenage protagonist as he fights for redemption within himself. William Stark is not the heroic type, at least not in his eyes. Will is plagued with an anxiety disorder that destroys his self-esteem and leads him to the depths of personal and physical hell.
William is a ghost in his own town. A town famous for attracting the fringes of society. Feeling alienated from his classmates he learns to keep to himself and hide his differences, but finds that shutting himself off from the world around him only leads to desperation.
Recruited by paranormal investigators for his unique abilities, Will is forced into a world of darkness to save the girl he was always meant to have. Will must conquer his demons or risk becoming the very thing he is trying to fight.
Through Will, readers learn that having a mental illness doesn't mean you're broken, it makes you heroic. This book is a modern prodical son story filled with plot twists and fast action.
The purpose of this novel is to inspire hope and redemption when the odds seem insurmountable and all hope is gone. The Resurrectionist will appeal to young adult readers interested in paranormal fantasy with a spiritual flare.
