Never Say Never
I was excited when I received this book from Bethany House Publishers. I had seen it advertised and the plot sounding interesting. I was not disappointed throughout the story until the very end. The author’s tone was perfect as she gave Kai and Donetta their own personal voices to narrate the events, the story was written with humor (especially during the parts when Donetta was narrating), the plot moved at a good pace and was filled with things to keep you interested in the story. My biggest complaint with this book was that the ending was unsatisfactory. An additional chapter or epilogue would have cleared things up nicely. The reasons that Kai left Kemp were all valid and never resolved; the issues that Kai dealt with in the past were somewhat resolved, but not fully; and Kai failed to ever make a decision about God.
Never Say Never is an enjoyable read, but the imperfect ending strongly affects the whole perception of the book.
