Kendra Sinclair takes the hot seat in Rebeca Seitz's
COMING UNGLUED, the second book in the Scrapbooking, Inc.
series. Kendra, the African-American sister, doesn't feel
particularly good about herself for reasons rooted deeply
in her past. So, although she may offer good advice to
her sisters, she has difficulty making good choices for
her own life, particularly with regards to men.
Kendra has a budding relationship with Darrin, a friend of
sister Tandy's fiance, Clay, and also a fellow musician.
But she also has a relationship with another man, one that
her sisters know nothing about but which touches—and
tempts—her in ways that her relationship with Darrin does
not and that God might not find pleasing.
Does Kendra find the answers to the questions within that
keep her from valuing herself and continuing to make poor
Sophomore efforts are always a risky bet. In this case,
however, Rebeca Seitz wrote a second series book that, in
my opinion, is better than the first. This book starts up
right where the first one left off. Although I thoroughly
enjoyed Tandy's story, I thought Kendra's story was better
told. I didn't find myself skipping ahead as much as I
did with the first book. This story sucked me in and held
on tight until the last page. I wanted to shake Kendra,
hug Kendra, and ultimately cheer for Kendra.
The wonderful thing about this series is that each of the
adopted sisters brings something unique to the mix by
virtue of their separate cultural identities, and Ms.
Seitz captures these unique aspects in a way that makes
you understand and embrace rather than forget their
distinct cultures. At the same time, she finds a way to
highlight and pay homage to the things that make these
women sisters even if they don't share a bloodline, like
their love for scrapbooking.
There are still two books in the series. I can't wait.
Coming Unglued is
the second book in the SISTERS, INK series of novels written
and about, scrapbookers. This book focuses on Kendra. Her
lifestyle makes great pictures for scrapping ï¿½ and a great
the loneliness she feels. But as Kendra's dating antics

control, they have an affect on Sisters, Ink and her
