    Black Rabit Summer

    Black Rabit Summer, a story by Kevin Brooks, was a book that I couldn¿t put down. It had a lot of suspense with a mystery mixed into it. This book is about a boy Pete and a group of friends and one night when they go to the fair and a celebrety girl comes. That night the celebrety girl Stelle and one of Pete¿s friends Raymond go missing. Then two days later they find Stelle¿s body in the river. Since Pete and his friends knew Stelle really well the police come and queston them.Will they ever find out who killed Stelle and will they ever find Raymond? The author teaches that it is really important who your friends are because they can get you in trouble when you didn¿t do anything. This book would apeal to kids who like realistic mystery and good suspence in books. If you like mystery books, you will like this book. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars

    Black Rabbit Summer Review

    This book has such a mystery to it, it keeps you attached until the very end. Kevin Brooks is known for writing books that don't have a "happy ending" which leaves you wanting more. If you are into books that you're completely drawn into, and it can somewhat relate to your average, but yet adventurous, every day teenage life I highly recommend this book.

    !!!! T^T

    I honestly adore this book, from the scarily realistic plot to the to die for characters, but what happened to Raymond?!?! UGH I could just kick Kevin Brooks for doing it again! His books are suspensful and well written with plots that are so original and realistic you believe it could actually happen, but the endings always leave you hanging!! I want to know what happened to Raymond!

    It's a rite of passage from adolescence to adulthood, leaving old friends behind for a future beckoning with invitations of bigger and better things to come. There is a reason we outgrow friendships. Sometimes things are better left behind. <BR/><BR/>Peter wasn't even thinking when he got the phone call; after all, it was summer. If he would have been, he'd have stuck with Raymond and let the others go on without them without looking back. As it was, nostalgia got the better of him, and he agreed to meet one last time in the den, their former home-away-from-home, but only if Raymond could come, too. Besides, he and Nicole had more than just a past, didn't they? <BR/><BR/>Five former friends, some booze, and a combination of drugs (some by choice, some not), add up to one night of confusion, chaos, and death. What follows in classic Brooks fashion is a mystery that continues to weave into itself more intricately rather than toward a resolution. Oh yes, certain issues are resolved involving who murdered whom along the way, but it's hard to say when we find those details out that it even matters. Who we end up caring most about is not the rich, fake, do-anything-to-be-famous Stella, but the odd, loner Raymond who talks to his black rabbit. Oh yeah, and it talks back to him. <BR/><BR/>Brooks is extraordinary at pulling us into his characters, leading us ever so slowly to answers, and then leaving much, though not all, left unsaid. If you are looking for a perfect ending, he's probably not your man. If you are looking to be challenged as a reader and not spoon-fed all the answers? Here's yet another of his works where you won't walk away being disappointed.
