Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sometimes there are more questions than answers Straightened, fourth in the Kennedy Stern series by Alana Terry, is a book that does not disappoint. The author brings readers a well-written yet gritty tale that takes a look at a very real and raw issue in Christian does the church, i.e. the body of believers in the church, look at and deal with homosexuality. Ms. Terry brings out the harsh way and the compassionate way of dealing with those who identify themselves as attracted to same sex individuals, as several characters are either gay or have family members who are gay. Kennedy has questions and seeks God's answers as one of the situations swirls around her. Who killed her friend's dad? Who is burning down houses? Straightened is a good mystery, with some 'heavy' theological questions being brought to the forefront. A sensitive and heartfelt look at a very controversial social issue. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Book Club network. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own.
