Fantastic, realistic novel of 21st century life.,
This review is from: Drive By (Paperback)Jim Carrington captured the storyline of really giving the reader an insight of how some teenage reckless prank can turn into serious consequences that can be life changing.
I only came across the author during a general browse at my local library- the cover grabbed my attention within seconds. As soon as i read the blurb i was certain that this book was coming home with me. I can not believe that i haven't heard of Jim before, his books seem a fantastic read and i'm going to purchase them. Anyway, onto the book, this is the first book that related to the young people audience, many books try to but still don't achieve that real connection with the aimed audience. I felt i could read and read this book and not stop. It's one of those books where you put yourself in that situation. I mean seriously what would you do if you and your mates played a little prank on someone and it put them in hospital, and then eventually killed them? It's a situation that is quite incomprehensible to think about isn't it? And that is what i like in books where it gets you thinking after. To put the review short, it's a fantastic, heart-warming, attention grabbing, excellent book! and if you like the real-life genre then this is a definite book for you! I love Jim's books and i'm going to continue to read his novels!.
