the final degrees of betrayal book Jul 22, 2006
Kenzie is tired of being ignored by everyone. She's tired of being passed over by guys. She's tired of being the dutiful honorable daughter and goody two shoes Christian. Through a stroke of luck Kenzie befriends Sierra Reynolds and joins the yearbook staff. Through her story we discover that she's always had a crush on Ryun Lee, but he ignores her until she gets a makeover. When Ryun discovers the new Kenzie on a college visit, he can't stay away and the two begin to date behind Sierra's back. With her newfound looks and her hot boyfriend, Kenzie leaves God behind. One by one Kenzie discovers Ryun's secret life and his tickets, and gets upset that he won't dump Sierra.
And then the car accident happens. Faced with all that she and Ryun have done Kenzie isn't sure what to do and for the first time realizes that she's turned her back on God. Ryun wants her to betray Sierra; but Kenzie's guy tells her that she's in the wrong and has been for some time. She feels tremendous guilt for what she did to Sierra and her part in lying about the accident, so much that she does two very unthinkable things.
Carlson did a good job of showing how cold Kenzie became when she turned from God. She also showed how guilty Kenzie felt for all that she did and Kenzie's decisions in the end were brave ones. This book was much better than the book about Sierra, where the main character didn't even come across as a Christian, not even when she tried to forgive two people without even bothering to involve God in it. Kenzie is practically Sierra;s opposite in this regard. I found the book a little more dull than the first two because I had already heard two sides of the accident from the first two characters. Overall I would recommend this book and Ryun's story, the second book, but would recommend skipping the first book.
