About:

A teenage boy begging God to make him straight. An evangelical father refusing to accept his son is gay. A college sophomore who could never predict the dangers about to overtake her and the ones she loves.

An intense and compassionate novel from beloved indie suspense author, Alana Terry, who has won awards from Women of Faith, The Book Club Network, Readers’ Favorite, and many others.

No matter where you stand, Straightened will challenge you to delve into the controversy with your eyes wide open and extend the grace and empathy too often lacking from all sides of the aisle.

Note: Straightened can be read as a standalone novel or as part of the Kennedy Stern Christian Suspense series. It won second place from the Christian Indie Author Network.

My thoughts:

This book deals with some tough issues, as all of Alana’s books tend to do.

She handles it in ways that represent all thoughts on this subject, although I found myself wanting her to preach what I believe, I had to remember that this is a work of fiction with characters that are supposed to represent the world, and they do.

If you are looking for something to challenge you and see things from different perspectives without changing your own, this would be a great book for that.
