Prowl by Amber Garza

About Prowl:

Seventeen-year-old Mackenzie Smith is sent away to spend a boring summer at her grandma's. But then she meets Wesley. He tells her exactly what she wants to hear and has information about her past that no one else knows. It's almost like he can read her mind.

Only Wesley isn't who he seems.

By the time Mackenzie discovers his true identity it may be too late. She's in too deep and he won't let her go. Now Mackenzie must call on the strongest power of all in order to save her life.

My Review:

At first Mackenzie is angry that she has to spend her summer at her grandma's house until she breaks up with her boyfriend and decides this will be the perfect way to escape her problems with boys.  Little does know that grandma lives right next door to a hottie!  She is instantly drawn to the boy next door but hesitates getting to know him because of his religion.  She also meets grandma's other neighbor and this girl introduces her to far more dangers than she had at home with boys!  She meets Wesley and Wesley is not what you'll expect!

I really enjoyed this book! I wasn't really expecting the dangerous things that Mackenzie dabbles in!  I really identified with her though and the way she is desperately searching for love because of her lack of a father.  She is naive and determined to figure out who her father is with the help of Wesley no matter what the cost!

The spiritual aspects of this book were pretty good, though I would have liked a little more depth in to the battle between good and evil but overall I was happy with how it progressed.   I think us Christians a lot of time forget the battle of evil we face and how deceptive Satan really is and this book gives you a fun way of addressing that issue!

Most young adult readers will probably enjoy this easy read and I think it would especially benefit young Christian girls and youth leaders like myself to remind us of what teens go through spiritually

I received this book free from the author in exchange for my personal and honest opinion.  All opinions are my own.
