Review : Hit by Lorie Ann Grover 

“After receiving a full-ride scholarship to Mills College for Girls, it appears Sarah’s future is all laid out before her … that is until she walks into a poetry class led by Mr. Haddings, a student teacher from the nearby University of Washington. Suddenly, life on the UW campus seems very appealing, and Sarah finds herself using her poetry journal to subtly declare her feelings for Haddings. Convinced Mr. Haddings is flirting back, she sets off for school in the rain with a poem in her back pocket—one that will declare her feelings once and for all.

Mr. Haddings has noticed Sarah’s attention; the fallout from any perceived relationship with a student is too great a risk, and he has decided to end all speculation that morning.
But everything changes when Mr. Haddings feels a thud on his front bumper when he glances away from the road, and finds Sarah in the street with blood pooling beneath her. ”
  
the first thing i have to say about this book is that it was quick. like really, really quick. I feel like in thid short 200 pages, the story didn’t have enough time to fully grab my attention. The lack of events but also of any kind of developments made it hard to enjoy. I felt like nothing was really happening, like there was no point to the whole story. Which is sad ´cause it all sounded intense and intersting at first. I kind of wish we had more flashbacks about Sarah and Haddings relationship, maybe that would have made me care about them more. There is also a lack of developments in the characters, none of them had personnalities and dimensions. And I really have to mention the fact that all the characters were only taking about how Sarah looked after her accident, which i found really weird. if someone i love survived a car accident, i wouldn’t mind the way she looked….We have 2 POVs : Sarah and Haddings. Sarah’s voice was okay, but nothing incredible. She was not really lovable or interesting….Haddings was not better. He was mostly dull and even a bit stupid sometimes. The writing style was overall enjoyable, but the plot really made it hard to see it shine.

Overall, Hit was not a bad book, just one that I will easily forget.

Hit : 2/5
