Book Review #939
Degrees of Guilt: Kyra's Story by Dandi Daley Mackall
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This is told from a Christian viewpoint, but it does not have overlying themes of Christianity, which I wasn't expecting. It also deals with drugs and the tragic consequences they have on people. This story was compelling, but still felt gritty and a little unrefined. I wanted to like the main character more, but I didn't connect with her. I don't know if the writing style just felt a little off or I just wasn't used to this type of story. I liked the story, but I don't know if I would ever recommend it to someone, it dealt with some tough issues and handled them in a pretty realistic and intense light.
