It is a life lesson for the six kids that had been drinking that night. Four are dead, one survives, and the other never got in the car. Now the only one who was in the car that would know what really happened is Jason, and he won't talk. Was this book supposed to mean anything at all? If it did, all I can figure out is that it meant people will do anything for politics.

This novel dramatizes an incident that took place in a California school in 1969. A teacher creates an experimental movement in his class to help students understand how people could have followed Hitler. The results are astounding.

But in Woodstock, the rebels discovered each other.

The book I read is called the Accident. Todd Strasser wrote it. For the most part, I thought the book was very good. I like books that are suspenseful and this one kept me on the edge the whole time. It had topics in it that are common in teenager's lives right now. It is about some kids that are killed because of drunk driving. The main character's name is Matt. He and a few friends go to a party at his neighbor's house. The party has people smoking and drinking beer. Almost everyone is drunk. When the party is over, Matt's friends decide that they want to go up to a ski lodge. Matt decides that he does not want to go because he does not fell well. He finds out that this was a good decision because the next day all of his friends are dead except for one. They swerved off the road and into a ravine. An investigation takes place. Matt thinks that there is something fishy about the investigation. So he takes it into his own hands to find out what really happened. This was a great book. For people who like suspenseful books, I highly recommend it.

The Accident was a thrilling mystery and it dealt with drunk driving. It wasa dark,icy night when five drunk teenagers flew off a ravine;only one survived. Matt is the main character in the book who suspects that something was wrong that night. Chris was also a character who died that nihgt from drunk driving. everyone suspects that he was the one driving since he was known to be a "bad guy". All of the people in the town vanalize Chris's home. Meanwhile, Bobby Stewrt was Matt's best friend, and one of the five who died that night. The Stewerts are a rich family who are donating a pool tot he school. It appears as if they have something to cover up, so Matt is trying to figure out what's going on and who was driving that night. This book taught me never to drink, because if you do, you will have to face the consequences which are destructive and can lead to death. I recommend this book to people who are interested in mysteries and who want to find out who was driving.

"The Accident" was a very interesting story. It's about a group of friends going on a skiing trip, but also drinking and driving. I like the story because it sends a perfect message to everyone through out the world, children and adults. Why drink and drive? Can people wait until they arrive at the place and then drink?

This book shows the consequences of drunk driving. Matt and Bobby were best friends, but Matt feels kind of secluded since Jason came along. Then one night Bobby gets in a car with friends who were drinking. All but Jason are killed when their car slams into a ravine. Soon, Matt finds that everyone seems to be hiding something about the accident. He gets clues from a friend's brother who works for the police department. But Matt must find everything out on his own. What will he uncover?
This book is a page turner and very worth reading!
