Crash and Burn
By Michael Hassan
Crash and Burn is about two boys, Stephan Crashinsky (Crash) and David Burnett (Burn.) Burn holds their school hostage with assault weapons and explosives, and Crash saves over 1000 people by stopping him. Crash and Burn come to be very good friends, living their lives like nothing happened that day.
This book does not take place in a specific place, but mostly likely is a city.
This song relates to the book in almost every way. It shows the deep sadness and depression Crash and Burn go through, as well as the moments of pride and heroism. It has a very powerful effect on whoever hears it. This song is one of the best songs to match this book.
This song shows every little bit of love and hate of a friendship breaking apart. While Crash gets nationwide notoriety, while Burn gets nationwide hate. As you listen, you can feel every bit of pain and anger forming between the two.
This song shows the sadness that the boys go through. It also shows the friendship built up and broken down as they face all the obstacles that the world throws at them. They are just kids, living a world of adults. Alone.
This song forces you to show admiration for these boys. They set out alone into the cruel world. They both have a form of ADD. This already gives them a hard enough time getting through life. SO many long nights of getting drunk and dazed trying to wash away the pain of how he lost his best friend.
At this point, the book is starting to come to a closing. The boys decide to forgive and forget and make up for old time's sake. This is the turning point of the book. Everything looks to turn out for the better. Or does it?
I would recommend this book to anyone with patience and enjoys reading. It's a very deep and thoughtful story, but is not a fast read. It shows the real troubles of the world, while also telling a thrilling story about a love-hate relationship between two friends.
