THINGS I CAN'T FORGET
Talented Kenneally is unafraid to tackle challenging topics. Her heroine this go-round is a devout Catholic struggling with her faith. Kate is an interesting blend of sweet, confused and judgmental, which doesn’t always make her likable. However, she’s incredibly realistic. A worthy read with a dreamy male lead.
God-fearing Kate Kelly is a counselor at a religious camp, searching for a sign. Against everything she believed in, she recently helped her best friend get an abortion. Wracked with guilt, a summer away with other like-minded people seems perfect. But the other counselors aren’t as by-the-book with their religion, and she feels like an outsider. Reuniting with Matt, a boy from her past, challenges Kate’s beliefs. Drawn to each other, she worries about things from his past and wonders if there’s a future for them.
