The Return of Johnny Kemp is a book by Keith Gray. The Return of Johnny Kemp Is real interesting book and inspirational book. I say it is inspirational because it teaches you about being bullied and if you are bring bullied then this book shows that instead of just sitting down and getting bullied stand up for yourself. A man named Dan had bullied Johnny and Johnny had been seeking revenge but although Johnny did not win the big fight at the end Johnny has still stood up for himself and taken ma ...more

What this story taught me is that if you or someone you know is getting bullied don’t just sit around , be the unique person and stand up for not just yourself but for others. What I liked about this book is that it shows me real life problems like last week at school I saw someone getting picked on so I intervened and not only is this Leadership but it’s also our School motto Through Hardship To Glory, therefore this book teaches me how to pick people up and carry on with there life. To be hone ...more

The book was very good but some parts were a bit plain but I still gave it a 5/5 rating because it interested me and I actually followed the story through with everyone else. The fight at the end was good as well because it was quite realistic and the end was very unpredictable because no one expected Dan to win the fight that's why the fight at the end was good for me. Right at the end of the book we didn't know what would happen to Dan but Dan changed and was going to bully his friend and robb ...more
