1. Typical Teenagers’ Struggles:
Typical struggles that teenagers go through was evidenced in this novel. Kiitan at the beginning of the novel was caught masturbating and watching pornography. Enitan got into sexual practices,c alcoholism, and was wrongly influenced.
This was evident in the relationship that existed between the two brothers. This resentment was there from when they were teenagers, up until they grew up and went to the university. And we see how much damage that caused them.
The theme of Influence was also very prominent in the novel. Good and bad Influence! Jumoke And Lanre had a bad influence on Enitan. Mary and the other classmates had a good influence on each other, as they studied for their WAEC together. Aunty Rose had a good influence on Enitan’s family, etc.
4. Salvation; The Love of God:
Oh, the overwhelming love of God!
The love of God is so deep, it chased Enitan, Kiitan And their father down, till it caught up with them, and changed their lives forever. God’s love as displayed in this novel showed that there is no one that cannot be saved. No one is too far gone. … More A Review on the Novel- Crossfire by OmoobaJesu Adetunji

Sitting on my raffia chair following my experience earlier in the day, I thought of how God has been intentional and deliberate about me all the while, even in my mess. He is never late.

I am writing this letter to at least lay bare my heart and that of so many who have wandered away from your presence.
