Reviews
"A novel about choices. It also touches on the aftermath of a tragedy and relationships...Langston is able to intertwine these elements in a page-turner with a surprise decision. An interesting read. Highly Recommended."-- "CM Magazine"
"[Langston] piles on the narrative stresses with chapter-by-chapter efficiency...A satisfying ride."-- "Booklist"
"Good books with the topic of car racing and street racing are few and far between...so this is a welcome addition for reluctant readers. The title and cover, with lights and a partial face in the rear-view mirror, will also attract them."-- "School Library Journal"
"There is much to this slim novel and it works well without preaching or endangering its creditability. That teens often misinterpret events around them and often blame themselves when there is no blame is explored and answered in this book with enough veracity to warrant a recommendation, or maybe even a second reading."-- "Resource Links"
"Langston's prose is quick and well-paced without losing the complexity of a solid story. Tom is an engaging, likeable character with whom teens will be able to identify...Tom's struggle to reconcile his past mistakes and face the consequences is a lesson that everyone has to go through in life, and Last Ride shows that it is possible to face off against these consequences without compromising integrity."-- "www.keenreaders.org"
"Relatable issues and the story is clearly told. "-- "Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media"
