I found the book dynamic and suspenseful and the characters realistic. I would long for more Robyn's in the world to stand in the gap and this character, while human, is a good role model in her honesty and struggle. Even as an adult, I find this teen and her story a good reminder of my own need to be praying and aware of the spiritual battle around me.
I really really enjoyed this book!! I am a youth leader at my church and have been dealing with teens for 5 years now and I can't imagine a better display of how Satan using things, experiences or people to crush our faith! I really want to recommend this book to young adults and young adult leaders or for any Christian adult for that matter. I've always believed that there is spiritual battles going on all around us, but Shellie Neumeier but it to me in real sort of way that reminded me how the simplest things in life could bring down my faith.
Driven reminds me that we always have to be aware of spiritual attacks. We must call on God and pray often. It's a reminder to me to know my scripture so that I can speak the words to rebuke Satan. Thank you to Shellie for a story that speaks to my soul! I loved it!
While geared for the young adult audience, it's highly engaging for the grownup crowd, as well. I loved it! It was easy to connect with the characters, especially Robyn, from the start. I enjoyed experiencing this teenager's journey so much that I even cheered for her on the sidelines.
The earthly conflicts presented in the story were realistic. At the same time, my mind opened to the unseen spiritual battle the Bible tells us about, especially pertaining to demonic influences and possession. Well-crafted, Driven is a bold, thrilling read, and an esteemed debut that I didn't want to end. I highly recommend it.
Robyn is a typical teenage Christian girl. She goes to youth group, has a close knit group of friends from youth group, and is crushing on two of the hottest boys at her high school. Whether she knows it or not, Robyn is the heart and soul of her prayer team. She's the girl that everyone turns to even when she's facing fears herself. When Robyn is targeted by a hostile reporter for the simple act of prayer, she steps up to the plate and grows even more serious about her walk with God. The battle for her heart, and soul, is warred by Caleb and Taylor, the two boys from her school, and two demons who have been given orders to do whatever it takes to destroy her.
Michale, Robyn's youth pastor, warns her early on that the people she loves might be in danger if she's been targeted for spiritual warfare. He was right on. The rag-tag prayer team goes through the wringer, with four of them ending up in the hospital before the book is over.
Nuemeier's handles the tough issue of spiritual warfare in a believable way. The scenes are never hokey - she deftly pulls back the glossy layer of high school life and reveals the forces behind the drama. It's reminiscent of some of Frank Peretti's works. I'm excited for the rest of the series - and to pass this book on to my sister's who are in high school.
