The Circle of Friends Ebook Box Set

Circle of Friends Series 

A young man on the brink of adulthood. A year of self-discovery. Will a newfound faith be the key to unlocking his confidence?

Glen Sauten is perfectly happy being average. But when his lifelong best friend backs out of their annual camping trip because of a girl, the disgruntled seventeen-year-old wonders if it's time to make a change. And as his feelings of rejection build, the frustrated teen starts spending his days with the charismatic new kid in town... despite his pal's hostile reaction.

Quickly caught up in their uncomfortable rivalry, Glen works overtime to keep the peace. But when he gets dragged to church to play wingman on the new guy's quest to date the pastor's daughter, the confused teenager hears an unexpected call from call from a God he isn't even sure exists.

Will Glen continue to drift through life, or can he grow into the man he's meant to be?

“Circle of Friends is a fantastic series! I meet with a lot of teens and speak to a lot of youth groups. I see the things they go through in N.J.’s novels. The authenticity of Glen’s (main character) journey is impressive. I kept thinking how is she going to be able to top this book, but she did, each book got better and better.”

"N. J. Lindquist’s books are the best Christian fiction I have read in decades."


The story grabbed me from the first paragraph and would, I think, do the same for most teens and "teens at heart."

Ms. Lindquist is able to craft stunningly vivid guy-characters, yet she never neglects the female characters. Highly recommended.

We really appreciate this book because it appeals to teenage boys as well as girls.

Glen Sauten captured our sympathies as we rooted for him to stand up and discover himself.

Glen is clearly a character readers can relate to. And hopefully as we see value in him, we’ll discover more value in ourselves.

[One of the characters] ends up in a wheelchair. [The] circumstances were so real it brought back memories. A good read for teens faced with a friend in a wheelchair, or who use one themselves.

David Hudson

Readers quickly learn to care about the realistic characters. The emphasis on discipleship and cell groups shows how teens can be equipped to be leaders in the church.

Captures the nature of friendship and what that means in this world of trials and temptations.
