"Shoot The Wounded", by Lynn Dove

"Shoot The Wounded", is a book for every young person to read. Better yet, place it in the hands of every parent to make them more aware of the trials and struggles that teens face daily. As parents we often miss the mark because we are too busy not looking in the right direction.

This remarkable book brings us straight to the issue of many circumstances today. Gossip, bullying, teen pregnancy and more. This is real life for teens. It's just not made for the movies. I applaud Lynn for writing about such important truths for us to learn and remember.

The characters here before us in this story are very real. The writing is poignant and powerful. This is a gripping story of  Leigh, Ronnie and Jake. Three young people torn by circumstance. We see faith come alive and grow.

This book is such an encouragment and testimony of God's love and strength.

Following, "Shoot The Wounded", is the second in the series, "Heal The Wounded", and the third book of this series is, "Love The Wounded". A powerful series for any library.

This book was a gift from Lynn Dove for it's review.
