I thought that this book was very well done, and did a good job of addressing some teen issues, but I just wasn't my cup of tea.

This book had a good plot and really addressed some issues with teens today. It teaches you a lesson and makes the characters feel real.

This book left me slightly disapointed because I knew a friend who really enjoyed it but I didn't find it really stood out. I did like the main idea and the plot.

This book was very well done. it really teaches you not to get wrapped up in money and stuff you want, but to care for the people you love while you can.

Running on empty is a very interesting and suspenseful novel. It's refreshing to see that it adresses important issues such as gambling and addiction. The characters experience typical teen drama and that's what help make them feel so real.
