Hit and Run is life-changing lesson within a story written by Lurlene McDaniel. This book is told in 3rd person omniscent view where we see the reality of four teenagers, Analise, Jeremy, Laurie, and Quin. These four characters all come from different backgrounds, but by the end of the story are all facing the same hardhitting reality of a tradegy from one night that will stick with them for the rest of their night. The build up of suspense as the story unfolds is tremendous. i didn't want to put the book down. McDaniel puts a great deal of high school realism into this story by describing each individual characters lifestyle and all of their thoughts, or lack of, they put into their actions.  During this book we see how one night of drinking and bad decisions can lead to a school year of tragedy and grief.

I enjoyed reading this book as a freshman in high school because it helped put a lot of things into perspective for me of what could happen within the next four years of my life.I recomend this book to all teenagers 12+ because it can teach you a lot about high school and how everything can change in a matter of seconds

Brit gets dropped off at Nannie's house while her parents go on vacation to Alaska. The minute her parents leave, a huge rental car pulls into the driveway. Nannie signs the papers and eagerly hops into the new car. Except there's only one problem: she can barely reach the pedals. (No to mention that she can barely see.) No matter what, Nannie is determined to pick up "the girls"Flo, Aurelia, and Daisyso that they can make it to what they know will be their final college reunion.


Not wanting Nannie to get hurt, Brit offers to drive the rental car even though it's illegal for her to do so, and that she just got her license.




This book tells the journey of Brit, Nannie, and "the girls" as they make their way to their final college reunion. As Nannie and "the girls" talk about the good-old-days in the back, Brit can't help but realize that their lives are coming to an end and how important this final reunion must mean to them. I thought this book was comical, had a great plot, a good adventure, and even some drama! Poor Brit didn't realize what she was getting herself into&
