Danelle has gone through a lot through the book. Her dad has left her and she has had many stepfathers that are just like her stepdad now. Her stepdad and her mom always fight and she never gets the attention she needs.
"I'm fifteen years old and I'm driving a stolen car... I don't want a stolen car; what I need is a time machine to reverse the past two months of my life"(1).
Reid is a spoiled rich kid who does whatever he wants and gets what he wants. He acts like he cares for Danelle but really he is just using her.
"Why can't you just trust me?" (71).
The theme of the book Stolen Car is to be careful of who you trust as a friend. Danelle thought Reid was a great guy who loved her but turns out he was just using her and did not care for her at all. She did, however, have one friend who did care for her, Ashley. Ashley wanted Danelle to be happy but she knew that Reid was not a good person and she didn't want Danelle to hang out with him.
"Once inside the house I notice that there are actually fewer people around than the time beforeand these people seem older" (88).
This shows foreshadowing by telling that they stole a car and then tell how and why they did steal the car.
The mood of the book is secretive and frustrated because Danelle is always mad at her mom for not trusting her and Danelle lies to her mom about Reid and is being really secretive and her mom can't trust her.
This shows imagery and how the last time there was a party there were more people and it was crazier than the second time.
