"Hit and Run" loosely follows the path of Lois Duncan's "I Know What You Did Last Summer", except there's not as much bloodshed in this book as compared to the movie (which is surprising, since this is a Stine book), except for another hit-and-run targeting Winks. As is typical with any R. L. Stine book, the writing's spare and short, and there's a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter. The identity of the killer is pretty easy to guess as well (at least it was for me), and I'm sure most readers familiar with Stine's work will guess him/her nearly from the beginning. There is some morbid, juvenile humor (i.e., at the beginning with the human eye prank and at the end when they're playing around with a stiff), but I think the intended audience will probably enjoy it rather than be disgusted.
Great book!! It's really scary and funny at the same time. You'll be really suprised at the end. It was the first R.L. Stine book i read that isn't Goosebumps
I rate this book 4 stars because it was a little draged on.

This story is about four kids who go through some horrifying things from dead corpse to just playing pranks on each other.
When this story begins it tells about the four children. First Cassie Martin who hung out with three boys. Cassis was athletic all her life between sports, swimming, and bike riding and just hanging out. One of the boys is Scott Baldwin which Cassie had a secret crush on. Scott was one of the all around guys. He was the starting fullback for his football team and an all state wrestler. He was also a class reprehensive to the student government. The second boy is Bruce Wrinkleman or Winks for short. Winks love to play jokes on everybody especially Eddie. Now Eddie is the last boy and everybody to play jokes on he gets so scared that everybody started call him scared Katz.
When the story starts they all meet up at Scott's house to do homework. When you also hear about Winks first prank on Eddie. Winks get a real eye from Eddies Cousin Jerry. When they all get there they all have a driving test in a few weeks. They all talk Scott into taking his parents car while there away. When they take the car out to a deserted highway then they head home before his parents get home. The next day they meet at Eddie's house. While his parents are at a party a few blocks away they take his parents car out when they start home they hit a man out of nowhere. They all freak out.
