FANTASTIC!! Apr 6, 2007
This book was great! I highly recommend it. It was sad but yet happy at the same time. Lurlene McDaniel is a great author. This is the second book by her that I have read and both are great. This book has made some people cry so if you do not like to cry then you better not read this book. This book did not make me cry though. I won't tell you the ending but you will love this book if you read it.
My review Dec 16, 2006
The name of my book is Telling Christina Goodbye by Lurlene McDaniel. This is a fiction book. Trisha Thompson is the main character. Her and her boyfriend Cody plan to go to Indiana University together for college. Christina got a scholarship to University of Vermont. Christina's boyfriend Tucker, is trying to get her to stay back home though. Everything was going just fine until one day, when Tucker was driving home from a basketball game with all four of them in the car, hit a patch of black ice and overturned the car. Tucker was not injured, Trisha was injured, Cody was in a coma, and Christina was dead. Now Trisha needs to cope with her emotions and hope that Cody will get his memory back.
I liked this book very much. I thought it was a sad book but still very interesting. I think this is a good book for teens to read since it takes place in a high school.
Telling Christina Goodbye Jul 16, 2006
Lurlene McDaniel is my favorite author, and I love her work. I was a little disapointed with "Telling Christina Goodbye" though. I don't think that the idea is original, mainly because I didn't really know the charecters well enough to root for them. I didn't think that this book is as good as most of Lurlene's, although you may feel differently. Even though this book isn't one of my favorites, it is still worth reading.
Alley from New York May 17, 2006
Telling Christina Goodbye, by Lurlene Mcdaniel, is a MUST read book. The book is about a girl named Christina, and her best friend Trisa. Both of the girls have boyfriends which are hangout buddies. Well the story goes along were they all get in Tuckers car,Christinas boyfriend,and drive to a basketball game. On their way back they get into a awful accident. You will have to read the rest of the book to find out what went wrong to the four friends, and WHO surived. You won't be able to put it down.
