"Although intended for a teenage audience (12-18) this book might well be enjoyed by adults of any age. Although part of a series, this book can be read as a stand-alone." Christian Library Journal
"This vivid novel for teens presents relationships, struggles, and the search for love and for God. Real issues are dealt with, and Christian solutions provided." Catholic Insight
"By now you will be hooked into the relationships in this teen fiction book series that is so like the real issues with teens. What I didn't mention in the first two reviews in this series is that it is written in first person POV. This gives it such a personal feel." Crystal E. Miller
"A Friend in Need tackles real issues, issues that matter to teens and young people, issues that matter to God. The reader who identifies with Glen Sauten will appreciate the real struggles Glen faces and the real solutions Christ provides as he learns to trust God for the answers. It's a very engaging story and an easy read." Leslie Kallen

There is a love triangle between Glen, Nicole and Charlie. I really felt sorry for Charlie. Here is this very popular guy that all the girls like, but his jealousy really eats away at his confidence. It made me think of all the times I wanted to be pretty so I would be liked. After reading this story it has shown me that once again beauty is only skin deep. When we allow jealousy, revenge and lies to take over we find ourselves getting further away from God. Glen is a great character and I have enjoyed watching him mature and find his voice to pray for others. He is a great example of a teen that desires to do the right thing. His ability to forgive is a sure sign of maturing .
I did like how the author gave us a bit of intrigue in the story by having mysterious letters sent to someone. Who is sending letters that are filled with hate? Could it be a girl that feels rejected or is it a boy that doesn't feel confident in himself? I loved this storyline because it deals with everyday issues teens face. The author kept my interest throughout the story and I enjoyed getting to know the characters better. The overall theme for me was how important it is to be a friend that can be trusted and to forgive others quickly. I look forward to more books from this gifted author.
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network. The review is my own opinion.
