The Hit

The new thing has come out on the market in England, its a drug but even more deadly than Heroin and Meth combined. Its called Death, you take it and you get one week of non-stop action and intensity, but then you die. There is no cure, and when celebrities start taking it, it spreads like wildfire and just fuels the ongoing protests and rebellions. Join Adam and his girlfriend Lizzy as they journey through this chaotic time.
This was an okay book at best. The main themes of it are drugs (of course), and mostly teenage sex. It didn’t know about that starting the book, but it became very obvious within the first two chapters. I also think the story could have been more detailed and longer, parts of it were very interesting and I wanted to know more but they stayed mostly vague throughout the book. I would probably not recommend this to a friend.
I would recommend this book to...
  • Someone who is over 14 years old
  • Someone who is a fan of Melvin Burgess

  • I really would not recommend this book.
