I received this book for free from HMH Books for Young Readers in exchange for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

First sentence: “It weren’t no secret Pa owned the best plot of land ‘long Granite Creek, and I reckon that’s why they killed him.”

Who knew Westerns could be so fun? Why don’t you mosey on towards Vengeance Road, guys? Don’t be hesitant about Westerns because they are awesome when you give them a fighting chance.

Vengeance Road follows Kate Thompson looking to avenge her father’s death after the Rose Riders came for him and hung him up because of a journal leading to buried treasures. Along the way, she gains a pair of brothers and a Native American girl, not at all welcome on her path to revenge. Kate learns that she will need their help to get what she wants, and she’ll lie and omit if she has to. She’s gonna kill Waylan Rose and his boys one way or another.
