Product Description

17-year-old Rachel takes a summer job away from home, looking for normalcy after her parents' divorce. There, she meets Australian Josiah, an older guy who lives on a religious compound near her work and they seem to have a lot in common with church, family, and a conservative lifestyle. When Rachel loses her job, she goes to live at the compound and everything seems great, until she begins to discover secrets about her new home. Alone and isolated, Rachel finds herself trapped in a religion that isn't just going to let her go.

    Personally I don't feel Deceived was the best overall story by Melody Carlson, but her most powerful ending that she has written! I felt like the book was pretty slow and was unsure if the book was really about the occult church at all since there was no mention or any sign that the main character would get involved in it. I was disappointed that the main character finally goes to the dairy farm/church until halfway through the book, which I felt was not enough time to gain good momentum as well as have a good ending. One thing that I have noticed throughout this series is that a boyfriend tends to help save the day. I do agree that this does happen in some situations but not EVERY situation so one thing I really liked about Deceived is that Josiah does not help save the day! I thought it was refreshing and unpredictable. Another thing I really liked was the ending! I thought it was extremely powerful and I didn't suspect the main character to be treated as a prisoner in a prison cell with barely any food or water! What made this ending so powerful though is that her eyes were opened that Jesus is the the way, truth, and life and no one can get to Heaven except through Him! I loved how she included Scriptures which I feel is a first in a while that Carlson has included any in her teen books! It also showed that anyone can get deceived by false religious claims even when a person thinks that their relationship with God is good. The ending of this story is the main reason I gave the book four stars, otherwise I would have given it three stars.
