    Read this thing!!

    The setting of the book Hit and Run by Lurlene McDaniel is in Ashville, North Carolina. The book has 4 narrators, Analise, Jeremy, Quin, and Laurie. The protagonist in the story is Analise and the antagonists are Quin, Laurie, and Jeremy. The over-all mood in the book is suspenseful because you don’t know what is going to happen to Analise or if Laurie or Quin are going to confess, sad because Analise has been in the hospital for about 6 months and is not getting any better, and guilt because Laurie is blackmailing Quin into dating her for the popularity and they both know what they actually hit that night and if Laurie goes to the police she will get in trouble too. The theme is hopelessness because the people in the book are trying to find hope after a tragedy has happened. The plot summary is this girl was coming home from babysitting and got hit by a car. The highway clean up crew found her the next day and she was rushed to the hospital and was said to be in a coma and a few broken bones. She has to have brain surgery and is donating her hair. Laurie realizes that they hit Analise and not a deer. Laurie talks to Quin about the night they hit something and she manipulates him into dating her until he graduates so she doesn’t tell and mess up his chances of college scholarship. Analise's doctor says she has three months and she just wants to be free. The next day Laurie goes to the Hospital knowing they won’t let her in but tells the front desk that her name is Amy Cartwright, which is Analise’s best friend, so they let her in. Analise knows someone new was in her room when Laurie walked in. When Laurie walked in she broke down and Analise took it offensively. Laurie and her best friend are fighting, her mom is disappointed in her and her dad has left them; however, all she wants to do is disappear. Some major events are that Quin hits something on his way home from a party and Analise gets hit by a car and is in coma. Analise is in critical condition at the hospital. Laurie blackmails Quin into making her popular but that back fires on her and she feels guilty. The doctors say that Analise has 3 months to live. Also, Laurie fakes being sick so she doesn’t have to go to prom with Quin and she confesses to her mom about the accident. Laurie writes a letter with all the evidences about that night to Amy, the book editor for the school. The people get what they deserve for hiding a serious crime. In the book the high point is when Laurie blackmails Quin into dating her exclusively and when she comes face to face with Jeremy, Analise’s boyfriend, and has to decide who she really wants to be. Towards the end Laurie goes to rat Quin out to the police, and we are going to see if Analise is going to live.
    I thought the book was very inspiring because how the girl, Laurie fessed up at the end no matter what was going to happen. The strengths of this book is how well it was written. I loved how descriptive it was when Analise was narrating about how she wanted to be free and just fly away. There were really no weaknesses of this book I found all of it very well worded. My overall reaction to this book was very interesting and it taught a good life lesson. I recommend this book to others because of how it keeps you interested and motivated to keep reading to find out what is going to happen to everybody.
    In conclusion, you learn how one careless mistake can change your life forever. Also, you acknowledge how you should always own up to

    Just at the right time..

    This book hit me and touched me in a very strong and sincere way. I have a friend who is currently in the hospital in a coma because he was in a recent car crash. Whenever I read Annalise's parts in the book, I imagined it was like my friend. I had hoped that he too can hear those in his hospital room and is able to sense things and know who comes to see him. This book was an easy read and kept me reading because it was like watching tv because you got to view 4 different people like a drama tv show does. I found it to be decently realistic EXCEPT Annalise riding a bike in the first place. I mean I just can't see a teenager really riding a bike...maybe walking home would have more believeable...I don't know maybe it's just me and I live in KY and I don't see that too much...Overall though, It was a good book.

    Pretty Good

    This book was pretty good. It was pretty realistic, in the way that one of the characters goes into a coma. And how she got there was intriging. <BR/>I can realte to the characters in the book because they're my age.<BR/>I would recommend this to people that like mystery and realistic but fictional stories.

    Really Good, but Forgetable.

    I really did like this book. The story was good, the writer is good at explaining everything, and i read the whole thing in two days (but its a really small book), but i just feel like I'm going to easily forget that i read this book. But I liked it and I recommend it.
