The Long Night of Leo and Bree by Ellen Wittlinger

Nobody should have a night like this...

8:30 P.M.: It's been four years since Michelle was killed. Leo can't stand to be at home with his mom -- she's crazy with rage. He's got anger of his own and pictures of his dead sister he can't get out of his head.
     9:00 P.M.: Bree parks her mom's car and locks the doors. She's in a bad part of town, but she knows the bar has to be around here somewhere. All she wants is to escape for a while and have a good time.
     9:15 P.M.: Leo, out for a drive to get away from his mom, spots Bree. Why is this girl alive while Michelle's not?
     By 6:30 A.M., when their long night is over, everything has changed

Ellen Wittlinger has become on of my favorite authors. Her books feel so real to me. I love every one that I've read. This one is definitely no exception! The characters, Leo and Bree, seem total opposites at first but in my opinion, they have more in common than one might think. It was so engrossing, reading the character's journey. A highly recommended book. Only one complaint: It was far too short!

I thought this book was really good, kinda weird and not what I expected but that's sorta what made me like it. I really liked the way at the end that they became more of friends though. (Oops...sorry if I gave anything away, hopefully not too much though...)

This book was really a great book. Throughout the whole book I was able to feel the characters which I think is a very important part in reading a book. The book was slightly predictable at parts but totally unpredictable at the next part, that's also another thing I liked. It shares little bits about each main character before really getting into the pain part of the storyline, I think that is what made it easier for me to understand, and feel the characters. Overall I think this was a great book and would recommend it to an older age group(for some of the storyline might be a little to graphic or unacceptable for younger children). Great story!
