Exit Point

Author: Laura Langston

Page Length: 110

Reading Level:

Genre: Fiction

PLOT SUMMARY: Logan has already died in a car crash when this book begins, but he doesn’t realize he is dead yet. As the book progresses we find out he died before he was supposed to, taking exit point 2 out of his life instead of waiting until 5, the last exit point for all people. He struggles to accept what has happened and then to protect his younger sister from a pedophile from where he is now.

REVIEW: The book was a little odd and took me a few pages to get into. It reminded me of an old story we used to tell when I was in high school about a teenager who was killed after driving drunk. Logan sees and feels his parent’s grief at his funeral. He realizes the sick plans an uncle has for his younger sister and he feel frustrated about trying to help when no one can hear or see him. The tension builds pretty well until Logan is able to help his sister and accept his death and move on, but I didn’t find this to be a particularly enjoyable book.

AREAS FOR TEACHING: Use of Characterization, characters change over time

TOUCHY AREAS-PAGES: Many pages, page 110 – read carefully!!!
