The Price of Friendship is a series of modern fantasy stories by Philip 'Norvaljoe' Carroll, who has made them available as free audiobooks.

The Price of Friendship: Book 1

Chad Baker is in love with Amy Snider, though he doesn't know it. He thinks they're just friends like the rest of the kids in eighth grade. But as the school year is coming to a close a mysterious boy shows up to complicate this ordinary teenage boy's life.

Derrick claims Chad has broken his father's proprietary hand held game player. The price to replace it can't be paid in dollars and cents, but in lives.

Chad must travel across dimensions and learn the ways of bending time and space by manipulating sound.

The mysteries pile up as he meets the residents of the dimensions and learns the responsibilities inherited from the father who disappeared shortly after Chad's birth. Who will help him rescue his friend, and who can he trust in a world of strangers and strange allegiances? The beautiful Amanda, four years older than Chad and a hundred miles out of his league? The manipulative recluse, Brendan Thrush? Or the dangerous and powerful Commander Lorantelle?

What will be the final price Chad must pay to prove his friendship?

The Price of Friendship: Book 2

Chad is in love with Amy. He knows it now, but isn't sure how to deal with it.

It's summer vacation before starting high school. Chad has recently returned from an inter-dimensional romp to rescue Amy and bring her back to the Prime Dimension, our world. After all they went through to survive their adventure, Chad can't understand why Amy now is acting aloof and indifferent.

Of all the things Chad expected from summer, his older brother, Mike, coming home without warning from his duty in Afghanistan was not one of them. The two brothers have a chance to compare experiences from their respective wars and help each other cope with the 'baggage' such trauma leaves.

However, Mike's sudden reappearance is only the first surprise of the summer. Others which follow are not so desirable and will affect Chad and his relationships with his brother and Amy for the rest of their lives.
