I was reading and am now finished with the book Hit and Run by R.L. Stine and I think it was the most fantastic book ever. It's filled with so much action and detail it's unbelievable. I can't wait to read more of his books.

What I learned from the characters in my book is you shouldn't take your parents car when they aren't home and practice driving with your friends when you are under age. Also, when you are driving and you accidentally hit a person, you should tell somebody about it even though you are under age and will get in a lot of trouble. That's what this book is about. Fore teenagers have a driving test coming up and want to practice for it. Their names are Cassie, Winks, Scott, and Eddie. So, they took one of their parents cars when they weren't home and went on a highway.

As they were driving they hit a person and to avoid getting in trouble for being under age, they just move the body to the side of the road and left. Throughout the week the body was found and brought to the morgue. One day they found out that the body disappeared and then the following week they got a phone call from the "body"! It said, "You can't run away." Everybody was scared and then the worst happened. Winks was hit by a car and then the others got notes that they were next. Before it could happen, Cassie figured out who the "body" was. It turned out to be Eddie. He did it because everyone played jokes on him and he was sick of it so he got them back.

The ending was kind of weird and unexpected. I thought it would have been an older person like a family member of the body. The book was great and I plan to start the next one very soon.
