About the Author
Praise For Crash Into Me…
"The ultimate heartbreaking, poignant road trip to a place you never thought you'd go." --Todd Strasser, bestselling author of Give a Boy a Gun
"Crash Into Me puts readers in the driver's seat with four teens teetering on the edge of suicide. But will their cross country odyssey push them all the way over? Only the final page turn will tell, in Albert Borris's finely-crafted tale of friendship forged from a desperate need of connection. An exceptional first novel." -- Ellen Hopkins, bestselling author of Crank
"Borris nimbly juggles sharp, at times even jagged humor with genuine poignancy to construct a road trip that rises above the formula. Characters are particularly well limned . . . The book doesn't overdo the stealthy message of hope; sentiment is balanced out with the macabrely humorous lists the group concocts ('Top Ten Celebrity Death Sites') and refreshingly credible transcripts of their online chats."
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, January 2010
