Reviews - What do customers think about Saved Race (Payton Skky V3)?

A strong and personal novel  May 31, 2006
African-American teen Payton Skky is back in full force in SAVED RACE, the third book chronicling her misadventures and life lessons. It picks up where SOBER FAITH left off. Payton is anxiously awaiting her high school graduation, but as the commencement festivities kick off, she is quickly distracted by other issues in her life.

While taking a drive with her sleazy yet endearing ex-boyfriend Dakari, Payton encounters racial discrimination on a level previously unknown to her. Dakari is pulled over for speeding and then roughed up by an obviously prejudiced white police officer. Payton is horrified, and the event sets the tone for the rest of her summer.

Payton's problems only get worse when she learns that Pillar, her beautiful bi-racial cousin, will be spending a good deal of the season with the Skky family. Pillar has always rubbed Payton the wrong way --- and she's not sure if a bi-racial teen will easily fit into her close-knit circle of African-American friends. Soon, Payton is wildly jealous of her cousin, thinking she has garnered the attention of the two loves of her life: ex-boyfriends Dakari and Tad.

As the story progresses, Payton's racial struggles continue to affect her everyday life. A shocking incident serves to bring Payton and Pillar closer together, but Payton continues to struggle with anger and resentment resulting from prejudice. The novel comes to a close when Payton moves into her dorm room at the predominately white University of Georgia. She has mixed feelings upon learning that her roommate, Laurel Shadrach, is white. However, they quickly realize that they have something very powerful in common, which finally might break down strong racial barriers --- their love of God.

SAVED RACE is a quick read but most definitely not a light one. No matter from what perspective one reads the book, it is bound to provoke strong emotion. As a white reader, I often resented the fact that most of the few white characters were portrayed in an over-the-top fashion, as prejudiced and close-minded. I was also often annoyed by Payton, as she seemed to be actively looking for even the smallest signs that others were discriminating against her. However, author Stephanie Perry Moore does redeem herself by adding two positive white figures towards the end of the book: Laurel and star football player Jett Phillips.

It must be noted though that this novel is geared primarily towards young African-Americans. I'm sure that had I shared any of Payton's experiences, I would have been able to relate more to her story and better understand her predicaments.

Although feelings about this book ultimately may vary according to race, the story is very powerful, provokes important questions, and calls for personal introspection about underlying racial tension.

Spiritually Felt  Mar 28, 2005
After being saved for almost two years now, I just wish that I had these books back in my time. The teens growing up in this day and age really need Christian books like this to relate too. Even though I am in my mid 30's this book has really been a God sent. I have even started my teenage cousin, who is now a sophomore in high school to read this series. This is a type of book that can lead to great discussion sessions with a teen group.
 
da bomb  Dec 28, 2001
This is great book. I got finished reading it in three hours!!! Let me tell you;I could not put that book down. I can't wait untill I get "The Sweetest Gift". "Staying Pure","Sober Faith",and "The Saved Race", are all very exciting books for young teens of any race.I understand Payton and her way of thinking,the experiences that she goes through can relate with every day life.
 
What a way to wrap up an amazing year for Payton!  Mar 16, 2001
I bought all three books at a conference and planned to put them away for my daughters for when they are in junior high & high school. I decided to preview them and couldn't put them down. All three books tie in together so well and the characters are great. I think everyone who reads them will know of a person who is similar to someone in here. The messages delivered through the characters are great and this one tackles a few common problems people face today like racism. I pray God introduces a Tad Taylor into my daughter's life when she starts dating! Share it with a young adult that you care about. It's a great way to reach out to them and to let them know God is in their life and will never let them down.
