Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally
Eighteen year old Kate has been raised to be a purity ring wearing self-righteous Christian. She has believed and done everything her church has taught her and does not understand how anyone else who goes to her church could ever behave differently.
The summer after her senior year, she works at a Christian camp as a counselor and gets her first boyfriend, experiences lust, and realizes why some people do break the rules that her church teaches. As she begins to understand other people a little bit, she is able to see how selfish and self-centered she has been and she is able to forgive her best friend, and herself and she starts to open her mind a little bit to understand that everyone does not believe everything her church teaches and that can still be ok.
