A MUST read for every new teenage driver. Excellent subject, dealt with in a very real-world manner. ( )

Themes of safety, integrity, and guilt. American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults, American Library Association Quick Pick for Young Adults, Booklist Editors’ Choice. The author is able to send important messages to teen readers through the dialog spoken by characters. Rather than the author narrating the lessons in a “preachy” way, she allows her characters to do so, which is much more effective. Examples include the police (ch 4), the teacher (ch 12), and the victim’s spouse (ch 13). ( )

This book is about two boys who decide to steal street signs for fun. A young mother was killed where a stop sign was stolen from and the boys begin to deal with a lot of guilt. The boys work up the courage to admit to what they had done. Great book.

This story follows a terrible decision made by two teens in a driver’s education class. Remy and Morgan embark on a daring mission to steal road signs, but sad consequences follow as a young mother is killed at the intersection where a stop sign was stolen. Remy and Morgan are faced with tremendous guilt and sorrow, and both finally decide to own up to their regretted actions. I think this book teaches lessons about responsibility and courage, and teens will enjoy the fast-paced action and suspense. ( )

First words
Remy Marland crossed her fingers and prayed to the God of Driver's Education that she would get to drive today. Remy's fingers were splayed on the denim of her torn, pale blue jeans, inches from the second most desirable piece of laminated paper on earth. (The first, of course, was her future driver's license.)
