Ladies and Gentlemen, after what feels like an extremely long and slightly painful time I have finally found a young adult thriller that managed to truly blow my mind. With that being said, Dangerous Girls is a book worth reading this summer.
Dangerous Girls is crazy, crazy good. I could actually feel the tension among all of the characters grow and grow as the story unfolded. I could feel the emotions Anna was feeling. I felt the coldness of the media. I had so many feels for everyone and everything. Haas did such an amazing job at really putting you right in the story as Anna tells us how her fun trip with her friends turned deadly. Now, I wasn't a fan of the group of kids so much because they seemed young and reckless and occasionally annoying. They were so ridiculous at times that I just...
Although the characters weren't necessarily likable that didn't mean they were not well written or that I didn't enjoy reading about them, but they were not the reason why I gave Dangerous Girls a 4.5 star rating. This book deserves that rating because it managed to make be believe I was figuring out the mystery of who killed Elise, when in all reality I really wasn't. Haas did such an amazing job at weaving this complex story, every time I thought I was maybe figuring out a little piece of the puzzle, I was not even close. Sure I got some things figured out here and there, or at least I thought I did, until I got to the ending and well my reaction looked a
little exactly like this...
and then I did something along the lines of
and then I got even more crazy
and well I just couldn't...
my mind was blow. I just didn't see that twist coming. Therefore, Dangerous Girls is worth reading this summer.
It is guaranteed to shock you. It is guaranteed to entertain you. It is guaranteed to give you so many feels. I didn't think there were a lot of really good thrillers in the young adult category, until now. I'm going to say it one last time, Dangerous Girls is worth reading this summer. I know I will be reading Dangerous Boys by Haas the second it comes out in August.
