For me, this novel struck a deep chord. The main character, Kirk, was one who, though flawed in a very real sense, and hurting enough to hurt others profoundly, dredged up great sympathy. There is lots of violence and emotion in this book, but it's not so far from what many teens experience these days. Even though most teens (hopefully) won't see a school shooting of this magnitude, they may encounter bullying situations that could escalate to this point, and for this reason I'd recommend Perfect Forgiveness. Teens may come away from it with ideas of how to help bullied kids in their school, or how to spot warning signs that someone is at his or her breaking point.

I see this author's skills improving with each novel. I look forward to Cilimberg's next installment!

This book had such a clenching plot. It kept you involved every word that is read. There were a lot of typing errors that kind of took away from the story but overall the plot kept you hooked. The plot was something so profound and a topic many authors would not use in the story because it is connected with so many emotions. The way it was used in the story kept you wanting to read more and more. Definitely a book I would recommend because it was one I couldn't put down.

Perfect Forgiveness is the second in the Deep River High series by Shaina Cilimberg (the first being Crowded). The main characters in Crowded (Lydia, Emily, and Josh) are now secondary characters, but still present.

Without unneeded introduction, the story thrusts us into the next year of Deep River High, with protagonist Kirk Williams being shoved into a bank of lockers. The bullying that was present in the first book is only amplified in the second. Because of the bullying he suffers--from classmates as well as the two boys who call themselves his best friends--Kirk goes along with his friends' plan to "shoot down" the school to cleanse it of bullies.

On November 1, over 20 people lost their lives at Deep River High. Kirk is the only one of the three shooters left standing at the end of the rampage and is the only one left to face the consequences (the other two die by another shooter's hands). The remaining 65% of the book is dealing with the aftermath of the shooting and how the kids (and youth pastor) at the Eastside Church of Christ and the school--and most especially Kirk himself--deals with the feelings of remorse, guilt, rage, confusion and the rest of the emotions that go along with such a traumatic experience.

The author, whom I know through Facebook, lost a friend due to bullycide (suicide caused by excessive bullying). The Anti-Bullying message is an extremely important one to this author--for good and noble reasons--and that is to be respected. She also does a good job of allowing her characters from the first book to grow along with their chronological age. The head-hopping, which some people dislike, is done well, and there are usually chapter breaks or other indications in the formatting that a new point of view is being used.

Although I'm not completely finished reading this book by a great, young author, I am already drawn into the pain filled world of bullying and what some young people are going through in high school. Filled with glimpses into anger and hurt, I think it's a sad tale, but necessary to be told.

This is a very good story about issues that are relevant to kids today. I don't want to give away the story, but just say that bullying can lead kids to have serious problems, and kids don't know where to turn or how to deal with issues of being bullied at school. Adults are too dismissive of just how painful that can be to deal with every day. By not dealing with it the problem can become much worse and lead to serious consequences. I would recommend this book for any kid dealing with bullying at school, or any parent dealing with their kids and their emotional issues, maybe to recommend for their kids to read.

This was definitely a powerful story Shaina has written, showing how some teenagers who are bullied, end up as the shooter in a mass killing. This story moves along quickly. I felt the young boy's pain as he dealt with bullies on a regular basis and also how he felt defenseless against them. The anger built inside him as he daily dealt with so much, and few came to his defense. It was sad how he reacted after he committed the murders, not wanting to do it, but the anger taking over and blocking all sense of reason. Though the consequences must be paid for such actions, there is hope even for those who commit murder when it comes to God and his perfect forgiveness. This story was one of judgment and redemption. I think it was a compelling story.

Perfect forgiveness is a story that tells a difficult tale of a student who was bullied by most everyone he knew. He cannot seem to find a friend who doesn't mistreat him until he meets the characters from the first book in the series, Crowded. They try to make him feel welcome, and invite him to church and to play Laser Tag, but it's too late. He has already made plans to stop the bullying, and can't seem to back out. I was impressed that the writer could make a character who should be hated one that I empathized with instead. When he does the unforgivable, the other characters must find a way to forgive him and help him to feel the love of Christ. This book would be perfect for Church youth groups, especially those serving 14-16 year old students. It does an excellent job showing the consequences of bullying, and the value of forgiveness.

There are a few grammatical errors, but they do not detract from the story.
