Personal Effects by E.M. Kokie is about a teenager named Matt, who is attending high school and is functioning like a miserable failure. Falling behind in school and getting into trouble, he is internally falling apart. Matt’s older brother T.J, died in Iraq roughly 6 months ago. One day Matt came home, and sees Corporal Cooper bringing T.J’s “personal effects” or personal belongings to his house. Matt would be willing to face a beating from his dad to get hold of his brother's stuff, to find out more about his dead brother. Matt’s snooping will lead him onto a risky journey that will change his life.

Opinion: 

I would not recommend this book to any reader that prefers story lines and plots that are completely balanced. The story focuses more on an emotional, thoughtful point of view rather than a sound, smooth plot. I do not think that including sexual related content into the book makes it a good read.

There is a lot of sexual situations. There is a lot of "F bombs" and profanity.
