Carrie Ryan is one of my most favorite YA authors. I loved her Forest of Hands and Teeth novels and I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. I’m a little bummed that I have to wait so long, though… Patience makes perfect?

Review: Hit by Lorie Ann Grover

81awgUsb5dLAfter receiving a full-ride scholarship to Mills College for Girls, it appears Sarah’s future is all laid out before her that is until she walks into a poetry class led by Mr. Haddings, a student teacher from the nearby University of Washington. Suddenly, life on the UW campus seems very appealing, and Sarah finds herself using her poetry journal to subtly declare her feelings for Haddings. Convinced Mr. Haddings is flirting back, she sets off for school in the rain with a poem in her back pocket one that will declare her feelings once and for all.

Mr. Haddings has noticed Sarah’s attention; the fallout from any perceived relationship with a student is too great a risk, and he has decided to end all speculation that morning.

But everything changes when Mr. Haddings feels a thud on his front bumper when he glances away from the road, and finds Sarah in the street with blood pooling beneath her.”

A huge thanks to Blink, Booklook Bloggers, and Lorie Ann Grover for a copy of this book! All opinions expressed in this review are my own honest opinions and they are not affected by my receiving this book for free.

Based on a true story, Hit tells the story of a young and infatuated Sarah. Even though she knows it’s wrong, she’s head-over-heels in “like” with her poetry teacher, Mr. Haddings. While he’s driving to school one rainy morning, Mr. Haddings takes his eyes off the road for a few seconds. Unfortunately, in those couple seconds, he doesn’t see Sarah crossing the road in front of him. Set over the span of three days, both Haddings’ and Sarah’s lives are turned upside down due to a tragic car accident. Continue reading

Stronger. More powerful. Unrecognizable. It’s just a matter of time before Penelope changes
into something far beyond his worst fears…
