Life couldn't be better for 15-year-old Remy Marland. Her driver's education class gives her plenty of driving time, and Morgan Campbell, the boy she has a crush on, is showing signs of returning her affection. When Remy and Morgan decide to go along with a driver's ed class prank of stealing road signs, it looks to be harmless fun. The dangers of giving in to peer pressure soon become apparent when fun turns to vandalism, and events spiral out of control to a deadly conclusion. Caroline B. Cooney continues to take on the biggest problems teenagers face- conformity, popularity and responsibility-with deep understanding. The author of the powerful life-and-death novel Flight #116 is Down, Cooney is a past recipient of an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults award.

"Life is going very well indeed for Remy Marland and Morgan Campbell, the boy she has a crush on. They're both taking driver's education, dreaming of how being able to drive will change everything and making tentative steps toward dating. All this changes when they take part in a prank that turns deadly and they have to face up to their part in the tragedy. Guidall's reading is too thoughtful, understated and subdued in tone and pace. As a result, the book, which is a real page-turner, doesn't translate effectively into audio in this performance, which seems endless. Either an abridgment is called for or a more dynamic, energetic performance. S.S.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
