Review of Only Uni

OK, Camy. You’ve made me mad! You see, I’m the one who never cries. Never. I don’t cry at sad movies. “You’ve Got Mail” didn’t faze me. Neither did “Sleepless in Seattle.” But girl, ONLY UNI made me cry. And not just sniffles. We’re talking I-gotta-have-a-box-of-tissues! I can’t believe you got to me, but you did – in a good way.

ONLY UNI continues the story of the remaining four female unmarried cousins in a large, close-knit family. This time, the main character is Trish – the flirty, popular, people-pleaser cousin. Trish finds herself in trouble no matter where she turns. It’s not enough that she’s wrestling with her faith and the dating scene, but her strictly-traditional grandmother keeps badgering her to get married and give her grandchildren. What’s a girl to do?

You may have guessed from the title that the main characters in this series are Asian. But the issues they are dealing with are the same for any young woman today. Camy sprinkles bits of Asiana throughout the book, but don’t worry, she writes in such as way that you won’t get lost if you aren’t familiar with the culture.

In fact, a woman of any age would enjoy this book because we’ve all dealt with temptation, sin, asking for forgiveness from our gracious Lord and then trying to forgive ourselves. And if you’re involved in your church, you’ll recognize yourself in some of the situations that Trish faces.

Your emotions will really get a workout, though. I laughed out loud as she ran the gamut of ministries trying to find her place in her church. And I cried when … um, sorry. I can’t tell you any more without spoiling it. But I know you’ll like it.
Camy, reading this was a cleansing experience for me and I truly enjoyed it. Your writing blew me away. Can’t wait to read your next one!
