K My Name Is Kendra

by

Kamichi Jackson

Fifteen-year-old Kendra James’ life begins to spiral out of control with the return of her long-lost runaway sister Meisha, and the visit of a young celebrity uncle with questionable intentions.

Things take a particular turn for the worse when that uncle exploits Kendra’s loneliness and untreated depression and makes a move on her that sends her world into a tailspin from which she’s not sure she’ll ever recover.

  1. This books sounds amazing, but it a little too expensive (especially as I will have to pay P&P). Does admin know if this is going to be released in digital format?
