Fast paced, relevant, and compelling, James Pence's YA will keep readers engaged in Palmer Keene's plight and compel you to find out how it resolves. Pence always keeps it real, and Friendly Revenge is a great reminder for teens and adults alike that taking the high road isn't always easy, and it's certainly not without its bumps. Even when we mess up, God is there to help. Recommended!

The book grabbed me from the beginning. As soon as I started reading it I knew it was going to be hard to put down. It changed direction from where I thought it was going more than once.

What a great read for any preteen or teen. A realistic portrayal of the compelling need to fit in and the courage it takes to overcome bullying. I also enjoyed the concept that a kid can find a true friend if they can see beyond appearances. The story also deals with the strain between parents and their teen, and the message is a good one for both parents and teens alike. I found myself caring about the bad guys in the story too. It's a hard book to put down. A gripping story about true friendsh ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Although Friendly Revenge was shorter than I would prefer, it was a really good read. The plot of the story was well thought out. I enjoyed getting to know Palmer and see him grow as a character. I found I could really relate to the story. I look forward to reading the next part of the story and hope to see more from the secondary characters as well.
