One day you are sound and safe, a happy high school girl, with a lovely boyfriend standing by your side, few friends (but all good ones) and the next thing you know YOU ARE STRUGGLING FOR YOUR LIFE!

Basically it shows how people's lives are tightly and closely connected..how one stupid act can lead to destroying many lives. Analise goes to babysit one day, and never comes back home. Jere...more

This is a book told by four characters, a la Spoon River Anthology, whose lives intersect on one dark, fateful night. Laurie is excited because high school sexpot Quin asked her out on a date. Quin wants to get into Laurie's pants and has a drinking problem. Jeremy is a carpenter dood (foreshadowing!) in love with Annalise. Annalise has to stay out late babysitting some kids who live on a mountain then takes her bike home instead of asking for a ride. Quin hits her with his car when he's had one...more

I like how this book was written in the journal format from different people. In this book, Analise is a very poor girl because she was in an accident and she was in a coma for the whole book, and finally she died. However, Analise's boyfriend, Jeremy, is a very single-minded person because he never think of to leave Analise no matter how she looks like or how bad her situation is. I do not like Laurie because I do not agree with the way she deals with the car accident, she uses this event to th...more

Maybe I am just not in to this type of novel, but I cannot remember a time when a mere 180 pages have felt quite so long. The basic plot is established pretty much by the title and the first few pages: a girl is hit by a while riding her bike down a mountain road by a boy from her high school who was returning home drunk from a party. The girl is then left in a coma while friends and family of the injured girl attempt to find the person responsible. Other than a couple inane twists (such as one...more

Hit and Run is the story of boy who hits and kills a girl on her bike as he is driving intoxicated home from a party with his date. This book is told from the four people involved, the driver, passenger, boyfriend of victim, and even from the coma ridden state of the victim. The story describes the effects of not telling the truth, and deals with loss. I did not like this book. It did not make a significant impact on me. The story was shallow and I do not feel that any of the characters grew. I...more

Have you ever hurt someone you love and wish you'd take everything you did to them that caused them to get hurt? " Hit and Run" is a fiction. My opinion about this book was that it was kind of hard to understand sometimes because it was a 4 point of view book but it had a really good setting and conflict like everything came together so well. The setting of the book was in Highschool, senior year in South Carolina. " Hit and Run" is about Analise Bower getting into a car accident and she has alw...more

This book was by far my favorite. I love the way Lurlene McDaniel wrote this book. The chapters are the thoughts of Quin, Laurie, Analise and Jeremy. Analise is in a coma. She was hit riding her bike through the mountains after baby sitting. They found her the next day her bike was totaled and she was barley breathing. That same night Quin and Laurie were coming home from a party that same night. It was Laurie's first party but she still remainder sober throught the night, Quin on the other hand...more

The book is about a few teens that are all tied together by an accedent, even though they don't really know eachother. A girl got hit by a truck, in the truck were two teens, and now everyone wants to know who hit the girl.

The best thing about this book is seeing whats happening from different points of views. I really liked seeing that because I really like learning about different people in the same situation....more

Hit and run is a story told through the voice of four different people. Before I give my review I must say it was an emotional read for me in many ways. Lurlene McDaniels' books are always emotional, but I had several connections to this book. I'll try to be brief. As I read the opening, which were the thoughts of Analise I thought of two people. First was a boyfriend I had in my senior year. He was injured in a motorcycle accident and his parents were told he didn't understand anything going on...more

Hit and Run by: Lurlene McDaniel is an exceptional novel that shows how high school students do anything just to be popular. This novel revolves around 4 people, each having their own perpspectives: Analise, Laurie, Quin, and Jeremy. After a night at the party, Laurie blackmails popular Quin to be her boyfriend to gain popularity as a freshman. But after knowing its all a lie, she feels guilty of covering up a murderous crime.

I thought this book was a fast read with hints of climax that keeps yo

Such a tough story.

One party, a few too many drinks, a chance bike ride, a chance date and leaving the party early. All of these pieces come together to create the perfect setting for a horrible accident.

This story is just heartbreaking. Because you can see how easy it would be. It's told through 4 people - the girl on the date & her date. The girl who is hit and her boyfriend. Through them, you can see all of the pieces of how this perfect storm can create such chaos and devastation.

But, e...more
