Driven is from Jess's point of view, and we get a glimpse into the life of a girl wracked by the pain of parental selfishness and her own stubborn, fierce independence.
As with all Nowak's books, the characters are as real as your best friend, and the setting is authentic and exciting.
A talented mechanic, Jess is fascinated by cars and the internal combustion engine. Complicating Jess's life is the fact that her mother is an alcoholic, barely able to keep things together. Stepping into the gap, Jess sees that bills are paid even if the money comes out of her wages at a local fast food restaurant. In a stroke of luck and timing, life changes when she meets Terri Sue Cline, a girl her own age who's racing at the Eugene Speedway. Being offered a job as Terri Sue's mechanic is a dream come true. But when her mother deserts her. Jess's pride is put to the test as she tries to pretend that all is well. Woven into the sometimes dark story line is Nowak's trademark humor as well as a sensitive depiction of a budding romance. For established fans, Jess's tale provides new insight into those favorite characters, Cody Everett and his awesome Uncle Race. A delightful addition to the Full Throttle series, Driven is already a hit for old and new readers.
DRIVEN is the third book and May 2012 new release from Lisa Nowak's Young Adult series. Driven focuses on Jess Deland, a shy 16 year girl trying to keep up appearances in a world full of betrayal and shame. Knowing your mother is a drunk and thinking your father never wanted you forces Jess to put all of her time and effort into her studies and re-building cars. But when she meets Teri-Sue Cline and Cody Everett at the local speedway, she doesn't know how her life is about to change.
Jess knows how to keep secrets. For years her mother's drinking has forced the young girl into being the parent. But when Teri-Sue Cline, a beautiful, young amateur racecar driver offers Jess a position with her pit-crew, she jumps at the opportunity to earn more money-and the fact that she will be working on racecars makes it the best job (ever).
Cody Everett is a fellow amateur racecar driver. But living in the shadow of the infamous racecar driver and uncle-Horatio "Race" Everett, places Cody in the unenviable position to try and prove worthy. Cody's love and worry for his uncle is well placed, following the previous year's harrowing accident that almost killed the man. But when he sideswipes Teri-Sue's car on the track, he finds himself the target of a very emotional and pretty 16 year old mechanic. And now his prime motivation will be to meet and get to know-Jess Deland.
Jess is determined to keep her distance. Hoping no one will discover her family secrets, Jess has few friends and is determined to push Cody away. Teri-Sue's family has welcomed Jess with open arms, and she is reluctant to accept any favors or gifts. And Teri-Sues younger brother Rhett tugs at Jess's heart.Read more ›
This is a delightful read for me as an adult. I enjoyed watching Jess grow and deal with the challenges of the first romance.
I'vw given copies to my fifteen year old grandchildren and will recommend it others.
