*Reviewed for HookedonBooksForever* 5 stars *hands down best books I have read in ages.* In The Life Gift by TR Lykins we join Alexia's best friend, Kristen on her journey of falling in love giving her best friends the ultimate gift of life. I don't even know how to summarize this amazingly touching story without giving it away.
