Product Description

Review

"Lynn's first book, Shoot the Wounded, is of the same calibre as Janette Oke's first book, Love Comes Softly -- the book that sold millions and propelled her into the reading public's heart like a rocket. Shoot the Wounded is a book that will keep you up reading all night whether you are a teen or a 50-something grammy like me! You'll be buying copies for every teen you love." -Connie Cavanaugh, author and international speaker- --Connie Cavanaugh - Author of "From Faking It to Finding Grace"

From the Publisher

Shoot the Wounded, which is written for youth and young adults, addresses how lies and gossip destroy a person's spirit. It speaks to the heart of relevant themes such as bullying, teen pregnancy and family violence all the while pointing the characters and ultimately the reader, to hope in Jesus Christ.

Format: Paperback
If you read the first chapter of Shoot the Wounded by Lynn Dove, you won't be able to stop till you read the last page.
Teens and parents of teens who read this book will feel right at home. Teen and adult gossip built on hasty conclusions from insufficient evidence keep the reader's eyes glued to the page. The kaleidoscope of high school relationships is skillfully portrayed. As Ronnie's story builds to a heart-rending moment of truth, Leigh and Jake tap-dance through a relationship complicated by half-truths. The meaning of the book's title becomes very clear.
Christians who read the Bible faithfully will recognize in this book the same kind of characters that populate its pages. The teens and their parents all want to be faithful servants of Christ, yet everybody has dark moments and failures counterbalanced by moments when their faith shines brightly. Good and evil battle it out within the hearts of very real contemporary human beings.
The finale is worth waiting for. I won't give it away, although it is tempting, because it is so satisfying. Lynn Dove has demonstrated skill as a storyteller in the context of a compelling testimony to the power of faith to redeem lives.

HASH(0xa440ffe4) out of 5 stars Powerful and Needed! June 7 2012
By robin prater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"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.

HASH(0xa438c030) out of 5 stars A Must Read For Teenagers! Sept. 12 2011
By Dolores Ayotte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Shoot The Wounded is an incredible, Christian, youth, romance novel. It deals with the many challenges that teenagers face in their high school years in their efforts to be popular and accepted by their peers. This well-written book by Lynn Dove captures the heart of her readers by starting off with the funeral of a sixteen year old girl in the prime of her life. This adds a little mystery to the plot of the story because it takes several chapters to get to the reason for the untimely death of this teenaged girl and the intrigue that leads up to her death.

Jake, a Christian boy, new to the fictional town of Maplewood in southern Alberta, comes with a past that is haunting him as he strives to start a new life with his family. Leigh, the neighbour down the street who has befriended the newcomer finds herself in a perceived love triangle when she introduces him to her best friend Ronnie. The struggles that these three teenagers face are compounded by painful misunderstandings, lack of communication, and the judgement of their small town community.

Lynn Dove has managed to capture the true essence of what many teenagers face in their high school years. She has also reminded us of how easy it is to jump to conclusions and form an incorrect opinion of others based on gossip and innuendo. Shoot The Wounded is a book that would fit well in all high school libraries.

HASH(0xa438c468) out of 5 stars Should be in every school library Aug. 17 2011
By TKrauss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a contemporary Christian novel for youth, SHOOT THE WOUNDED delivers the gospel with enough angst that it is sure to meet with the approval of today's teen. It delves into relevant topics such as teen pregnancy and family violence, mixed with the usual boy-girl relationships and coming of age themes common to YA fiction. In this book we see that being a Christian isn't easy, and it certainly doesn't mean you are perfect. SHOOT THE WOUNDED is the first in a trilogy by Canadian author Lynn Dove and sets the stage for its equaling engrossing sequel, HEAL THE WOUNDED. This is a set that should be in every school, church and public library.

HASH(0xa438c90c) out of 5 stars A Thoroughly Enjoyable Read from Cover to Cover! Feb. 26 2011
By BostonEd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a published author of young adult books, I have a great interest in reading what other books are out there. I read Shoot the Wounded in one sitting! It intrigued me from the very first chapter, and kept my interest even after I had finished reading it. The characters Leigh and Jake are very relatable and dynamic. I think any teenager would be able to relate to the struggles they face, especially anyone who has ever lost a friend in a tragic way.

What really rang through within the pages of this novel was the message of the painful consequences of gossip--whether it be in a school, neighborhood, or church. I think anyone who has ever been lied about, gossiped about, or the victim of a vindictive person's sabotage, would find great comfort in this novel. I recommend Shoot the Wounded to teens who are Christians and teens who are not. The messages within this book apply to LIFE. Lynn Dove did a great job capturing the mindset of a teenage boy and a teenage girl, as well as their parents. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the Wounded Trilogy!!!
