Book Description

"Elena Andrews' Run Like Hell is a spectacular debut. Suspenseful, with beautifully drawn characters--this is a wonderful new voice in fiction!"
Heather Graham, New York Times Best-Selling Author

What if the perfect party plans didn’t work out so perfectly?

In this young adult thriller, seventeen-year-old Morgan Butler’s parents are out of town and she’s finally alone. She has a romantic night planned with her boyfriend after attending the party-of-the-year. And her aunt is conveniently working late and will stop by the following day to check on her. All her plans are falling into place. But on the way to the party, her car runs out of gas.

Stranded on a dark, desolate road with no money, no gas and a dead cell phone, Morgan makes a decision with dangerous consequences.

Now she must fight, claw, scratch and scream…and then run like hell to survive.

But will she get away?

3.0 out of 5 stars It was ok April 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was pretty excited when I downloaded this book. It seemed like it would be very exciting and suspenseful and for about the first quarter to one-half of the book it was.

Then the excitement started to wane and I felt a feeling of deflation. At that point, the book became a bit confusing and started to seem more like a work of non-fiction than of fiction. I wondered if the author was just relaying a story that had happened to her.

The book also annoyed me for a few reasons. There were many typos and some misspellings and poor grammar. Some examples are starring instead of staring, its instead of it's and then instead of than.

Another thing that annoyed me was some of the careless things that the lead character did, especially in the 2nd half of the book. I also felt that the end kind of left some things unfinished, especially regarding the dog.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spellbinding, Well-Written Suspense Story February 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Run Like Hell" is a suspenseful, spellbinding story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Morgan is a young girl who meets a stranger when she runs out of gas on the way to a party. It's dark. Her cell phone is dead. She doesn't have a gas can. She has two dollars on her. A teenage nightmare comes true when a young man knocks on the car window. The man who offers help, but then he chases, stalks, threatens, and injures Morgan while her parents are out of town. Morgan's spunk and bravery lead her to the man's dysfunctional family and the tragedy that lies beyond. Morgan runs like hell, but will she get away?

Morgan's story will keep the reader's attention to the very last page. The characters: Morgan's stalker, his family, her classmates, and Aunt Rory are interesting and genuine. The story is dead on. This young adult fiction is fast-paced and a very enjoyable read for all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked, for the most part April 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I guess that I'm too old, at age 62, to appreciate a whiny teenager. I remember BEING a teenager, and I don't think that I was allowed to be as spoilt as most of the characters in most of the YA books I've read lately.

There were 3 things that I disliked about this book: Basic TEEN IN PERIL #3A plot. Whiny spoilt teen takes mother's car even though she was told not to, and gets in the worst sort of trouble with a stranger. Whiny spoilt teenager gets chased, stalked and basically scared out of her tiny little mind. BIG personal bugaboo for me: First person singular voice. This is why I dislike a lot of Patricia Cornwall's works.

I read through the book, wanting more and more with each passing page to reach out and slap the ever-lovin' (fill in the blank) out of this silly, stupid, shallow and superficial female, whose only redeeming quality seemed to be her attachment to her dog. I was at the point of just saying "PHOOEY on you-ee, Lou-ee" and deleting the entire thing.

I'm glad that I didn't delete the story, because the last 3 chapters completely redeemed the book for me. Suddenly, Morgan wasn't this two-dimensional whiny brat. The character grew into a likeable character who matured a LOT. She grew into caring about the villain's younger brother, she listened to her mother telling her a gut-wrenching secret (NOPE, no spoilers here - read the book. Trust me on this one, gangers). Suddenly, all of the characters turned into HUMAN BEINGS. Flawed, with problems and difficulties, but people that I actually would have liked to know in real life. That's an accomplishment.

I STILL can't give it a 5 start review simply because the first person singular narrative form made it difficult for me to read. However, I am looking forward to reading more of Ms. Andrews' work. Once she finally hits her stride, the narrative is interesting and engaging.

Good work, ma'am. I look forward to enjoying more of your works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs editing. April 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I like the premise and plot of the story but it could have been much better. There are way too many editing mistakes and flaws and holes in the story. If it were revised and if there were a bit more suspence then it would be easily five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars true to life terror July 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This right here is a woman's nightmare come true! Stranded with no gas and no cell on a mostly deserted road only to be picked up by a "nice" guy that isn't stopping for the gas you so desperately need for your car that then chases you and then stalks you once you get away. Truly creepy and so real!

I found it to be rather fast-paced. There were a few times it lulled a little but it was during the lulls that you really got to know the people.

While I am not a huge fan of first person narratives, in this case it worked really well and made the story that much more believable. You got to feel her panic and fear as well as her shame and determination. You're there in her head while she works out her family issues, her desire for her boyfriend and the situation with her new stalker that grows more complex and creepier by the page.

While I would have loved to give this five stars, I just couldn't. There are things that a good editing would fix. There was also a couple of discrepancies in the narrative like a part involving her dog. In one scene she's feeding her dog before leaving for a game after school then later that evening she says she didn't see him since that morning. That's little I know but it was irksome in the flow of the story.

All-in-all I do like this book and will probably read it again. Wonderful debut!
