Reader reviewed by Terry

My son never gets excited about books but this one he couldn't put down and then he told me to read it.  I've got to admit it's a real page turner!  I liked it just as well as my son did.

I got this summary from the book jacket: "Shoot the Wounded is a contemporary Christian novel that deals with relevant social issues such as teen pregnancy and family violence.  Set in the small fictional town of Maplewood, in southern Alberta, best friends Leigh and Ronnie find their friendship and faith challenged when Jake, a good looking Christian boy, moves into their neighbourhood.  Leigh is especially delighted that Jake is paying more attention to her than any other girl at school or church, but what she does not know is that despite his bold declaration of being a follower of Christ, he's carrying a dark secret from his past that has the potential to destroy his integrity and have his friends question the legitimacy of his faith."

I am looking forward to the sequel!
