Maybe the ending was like the way it was on purpose, but all I can say was that I was extremely disappointed about how Analise just suddenly turned away from Jeremy, away from Laurie, away from everyone. I also wanted to see Quin's father's reaction, and many questions were left unanswered. Say, did Quin's father know all along of what Quin did? Or was did he know and was simply pretending to be ignorant for the sake of his son? Also, Laurie's famil...more
Sadly, this is not a stellar addition to the collection.
Quin, Laurie, and Annalise were well-written (Laurie the best of them). Jeremy, not so much.
It is an interesting take on a tragedy (as her books often are), focusing on the question of what is moral and looking at how people respond to things that happen in their lives.
One detail nit-pick: Locks of Love does not give wigs to ca...more

when I first saw it, I was in a bookstore, and I as in there until closing reading that book.
but cursing my slow reading skills, I only finished half of it.
I was have a great summer vacation, but school was right around the corner, and I NEEDED to read a book!
so I went BACK to that bookstore a bought it.
why I didn't buy it the first time, I have no clue.
Also, I'm one of those people who read the last page, so I can spoil it.
But overall, I did see it coming, but there...more
Hit and run is the one that i already read for October book, the author of this book is Lurlene McDaniel...
I think other people should read it because Analise died and all of her friends and family work for the box that she's gonna put it too and her friends really work for her when she's in the hospital...
The best thing about this book is that everybody learn that not all of the teenagers are practically good at biking and they won't actually get in trouble by having their own thinking or new l...more
