Robyn loves her friends, enjoys her youth group, and looks forward to meeting cute Caleb Montague. But when a caustic news reporter challenges her school’s prayer team, Robyn must choose: defend their right to meet on campus and pray for whomever they wish or back down at the principal’s request.

Now she must learn what God wants her to do. And she had better learn fast, because there’s a supernatural enemy in town whose sole mission is to stop her—no matter the cost.

Driven is a new take on the age old battle of good versus evil.  Gripping from the first page, this is one book you won't want to put down.

--Leanna Kay, co-creator of - a place for Christian girls to grow in faith.


With hints of C.S.Lewis’ Screwtape Letters and Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness, Ms. Neumeier captures the intensity of spiritual battle that even the most mature of Christians often overlook.

Driven is a breathtaking book of tension, intrigue, and heartwarming emotion. From the moment I began to read until the very last word, I couldn't put it aside. It held me enthralled!--Lindsay Below, author of Head Over Hand-Bought Heels


The contrast between the demons' obedience due to fear and their pain and diminishing presence when disobedient was striking against the teen's growth from their struggles and obedience drawn from desire for and need of the Father's love.  Due to some of the issues in the book, I would definitely recommend the book to older teens.--Bobbie Anderson


Driven by Shellie Neumeier will leave every teen wanting to know what happens next in the lives of these prayer warriors. Shellie creates realistic characters, angels, and demons. A must have for every teen struggling through real life adventures. Shellie spins an amazing story that helps show the reader the path in finding Jesus and asking him into your life under any circumstance.—Cheryl Ecklund, creator of Our Wisdom Shared; Parents of Chronically Ill Children, Sharing.

Oily creatures of the night are seeking to destroy a group of teens at Brookfield Central High School. Their primary target? A resilient teenage girl who refuses to question her calling. But how much guilt, how much pain, and how much accusation can one human take? Laced with other-worldly plot threads akin to Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness, Shellie Neumeier’s debut novel inspires followers of Christ to stand strong in God’s calling regardless of tragic circumstances. Along the way she explores tragedy in friendships and the beauty of redemption. —Caleb Jennings Breakey, Refining Teen Writers into Rockstars
