Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Things I Can't Forget is a good Christian read.
Summary from Goodreads:
Kate has always been the good girl. Too good, according to some people at school—although they have no idea the guilty secret she carries. But this summer, everything is different...
This summer she’s a counselor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counselor too. He’s the first guy she ever kissed, and he’s gone from a geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt - with her.
Kate used to think the world was black and white, right and wrong. Turns out, life isn’t that easy...
I really enjoy how Miranda Kenneally makes Christian books for young adults. There are not that many of them out there, and her books are god. I do wish this book was not as focused on the Christian values. It made Kate judgmental and selfish.
I was glad that Kate did honestly have a sweet and sex free romance with Matt. It was nice because most teen books are too romantic, but this one just used the basic teen romance, with worries about going too far.
Kate is a sweet and very religious person. She is wondering what career she should go into and what she should study in college. To earn a little money she works at the camp. I like how she has friends and enemies at the camp, but works through it all. Matt is a sweet also Christian boy. He is a songwriter who is a few years older than Kate.
Overall, this is a good book with great messages.
