    A clean, exciting, well-done read!

    Another great book by Alana Terry, which tackled some very real issues in our modern society. We have the story of Kennedy, the daughter of American Missionaries in Yanji and Reuben, an international student from Kenya, both attending Harvard for their Medical Degree. Smart students with an A plus average and full scholarships don't get in trouble, right? Well, that might be what one would think, but then we consider the current situation in the U.S. and various parts of Canada and other countries and we know that trouble can abound anywhere and at anytime whether one is innocent or guilty. Alana Terry, in this story, explores what can happen when one comes across a cruel, troubled or racist police officer, and she will have you quickly turning the pages to find out what happens to her protagonist, Kennedy, and her friend, Reuben. There are many interesting characters in this story and I was especially interested in the way Kennedy related to her roommate, Willow. I would highly recommend this, and other stories in this series, to all young men and women going off to College or University because there are many issues which they could benefit from thinking about and it would be also great reading for High School students, for parents and for anyone who loves a story with issues to consider and discuss. It is a clean and exciting read!

    Another Hit by Alana Terry

    I just finished Policed (Kennedy Stern #3) by Alana Terry and the one word that comes to mind is "wow"! Each book in this series deals with a hot-button issue that is relevant to our world today. The author skillfully delves into the many layers, thoughts, feelings and opinions relating to the main subject of the book, causing the reader to see that issues are not always "black" or "white", but often somewhere in between. The subject of faith is also woven throughout the book, letting the reader know that it's not always easy to blindly trust God, especially when we don't understand why He "allows" events and circumstances to happen the way they do. Kennedy and Reuben are first year pre-med students at Harvard University. They are lab partners and friends, but it seems that their friendship is turning into something much deeper. What starts out as a fun night with so much promise ends in a way that neither of them ever considered it could. Secrets are exposed and unintended consequences of "doing right" are revealed. I give this book a 5 star rating. It held my attention from the very first page and did not let go until the end. I did not expect the book to end the way it did. I'm still pondering what I read, which definitely makes this a good book. I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I received a copy from the author, but was not required to leave a review. All opinions are my own.
