When reading the first few chapters, I was very unsure of the book. And a little lost and confused, too. But the further I got into the book, the more I fell in love with it. The plotline is very interesting, and the world that Erin Lorence creates is quite unique.I struggled with relating to the main character, Dove. And her bluntness oftentimes threw me off guard. But she has this strong desire to serve the Lord and her strong faith is admirable. I strive to have faith like hers.Dove travels to the Council with a young girl named Melody. The two characters couldn’t be anymore opposite. But I love the bond the two of them develop over time, and the reader can tell the two care for each other, even if they wouldn’t want to admit it.I like the way she presented non-believers in the book, too. And I really like how she incorporated the United Church of America-a Church that was open to “all religions” but had a very skewed view of Christianity and was unacceptable of the real Christianity. A very worldly concept.Overall, I did like the book. Like I said before, the first few chapters were rough, but after I got through those, I wasn’t able to put the book down.I had received a copy of this book as part of the Celebrate Lit Blogging Team and was required to give an honest review.

I politely smile and keep what I really think inside. But my main character, Dove Strong, doesn’t. She blasts people with the full force of her words. Sometimes Dove’s words sting…but she’s never merely polite or hum-drum boring.
I secretly hug the random and ridiculous moments of life to myself, preserving my appearance of normalcy. But when I write, the true ‘uncool’ me escapes. It is responsible for the caterpillar dangling from a character’s nostril as well as for the little sister who won’t stop harping on about her precious bag of chips.
I write to escape and to help others escape. I write to laugh and make readers smile. I write so ‘the lost’ will wake to find that they crave an intimate relationship with The One who loves them most.
This is why I write. And that is why I wrote Dove Strong.
