SHOOT THE WOUNDED
by: Lynn Dove
is a contemporary Christian novel that deals with relevant social issues such as teen pregnancy and family violence. Set in the 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.
