Book Review “The Hit”

Do you want the ultimate high? One week with nothing to lose, but there is one catch. After the amazing week, the victim dies a slow painful death. That is the great adventure that Adam and Lizzie take. With all of that comes the ups and downs of young love with a few bizarre twists in between.

By Parker Peltier

This wonderful fiction book takes the reader on a wild ride that no teenage could ever dream. “The Hit” is a book the reader simply has to grab by the horns and ride along. Adam is a lower-middle class high school student. Lizzie is his rich girl friend whose loyalty could be her downfall.  It all starts out as a simple date with Adam and Lizzie when the simple act of a pop star sends the world into a revolution. The drug death is handed out in the thousands, and regular people just take it. Just a few days later when Adam feels down and out, he takes death too, and then the ride begins taking the reader through murder and kidnapping.

The Hit has a great plot that takes off from the very beginning and the action never ceases to amaze. From the screaming of a concert to the suspense of death, it is nonstop. This book is for mature audiences only, so reader discretion is advised. No matter what, I highly recommend this book. Parker Peltier is a junior in the gifted program at Hahnville High.
