I still remember the horror I felt as this story unfolded. As a mother, way past any such temptations myself, I still became the kids as I read. Cooney creates in the reader that sort of nightmare experience: in your dream, you have done something terrible, something really terrible and your life will never be the same. From the dream, you wake. The impact of this story is that there can be no waking. The terrible thing is there, and will always be there. My reaction to the story still lingers, after all these years.Read more ›
Remy, Lark, and Morgan are mischievous friends who plan to go out to steal certain signs one night. None of them have their licenses, so Nicky Buddy drives. He is one year older than all of them, and he lives by Morgan so he is a friend with him. Remy decides that she want a Morgan Road sign, they get a "Thickly Settled" sign for Lark, and Morgan takes a Stop sign. Also, Remy and Morgan kiss when they are in the car. When Remy comes home, Mac starts to question her and she has to hide the Morgan Road sign in the bushes to make sure that Mac doesn't tell their mom what she did.
That night, Morgan is watching the news and he sees a thing on about how a stop sign was taken off of Cherry Road and some mother was hit by a truck and died. Morgan then realizes that it was the sign that they took. Morgan's dad then says, "Whoever took that sign should be shot."
It was Friday, so she didn't have to worry about school, but all she could think about was the sign. What if her class found out? Saturday passed, and still, she couldn't think of anything but the sign. Then Morgan's family decides to start going to church, and this makes Remy think that Morgan told. But then she realizes they only went because his dad is running for governor. After church, everyone went to the basement to have cake and coffee, but Morgan couldn't eat because every time he put cake in his mouth, he thought of the lady never eating again.Read more ›
Another aspect I enjoyed was the way Caroline Cooney built up the suspense throughout the book. I experienced the same anticipation as the main characters and was never quite sure what they would ultimately decide to do. The ending is such that it leaves you meditating because the story does not feel quite finished. While some may view an unfinished story as irritating, I see it as an opportunity for the reader to make the story his or her own by personalizing it with his or her opinion of how the characters' lives will play out.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced the torture of keeping a secret or has done something wishing no harm but later regretted the action. If you like this book, I would also recommend The Face on the Milk Carton by the same author.
Over all the book was fairly good. I did like the realism of the life of a teen: the pressure of friends, crushes, teachers and parents. I didn't like the realism of Denise Thompson death. This book was very different than all the books I ever read. This is a book many people can look at and see how it relates to their life or somebody else's life. It keeps you on edge, and makes you ask questions like. What will they do next? What is going to happen? It is obvious Caroline B. Cooney enjoys writing very real books. If you don't like realistic fiction, or dramatic books, this book isn't for you. If you do like these type of books, try it.
