Review for “Prayed Up” by Stephanie Perry Moore

Filed under: reviews — Rachel @ 4:13 am

Perry Skky Jr. is a normal teenager. Well, if you consider a freshman college football player with looks to kill for is normal. He has made some mistakes in his life, just like all of us. He wants to be able to pray more intimately with God. His mistakes are messing up his games and life. It turns out that his girlfriend has some bad news herself that could change things for them forever. He vows to do his best in games and to stay pure, but does he have what it takes? Does he have the right influence? Will he make more mistakes that will mess things up again?

I didn’t like this book very well. However, it did have some points that were well-written and insightful. I found it rather boring at times. I didn’t like the slang. That could be an asset or an annoyance depending on the reader. Yes, it did mention things I agree with. I liked how Perry tried to come back to God and fix his problems instead of letting them control his life. I liked that he realized he was doing wrong things and knew they weren’t the only way out.
