GIVEAWAY!! Blog Tour: Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan

Crazy Dangerous
written by Andrew Klavan

Why did I pick this book: I was fortunate to be a part of the blog tour for Crazy Dangerous hosted by YA Bound. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

Did I enjoy this book: I enjoyed this book a lot especially once I hit the second half of the book. 

To be honest, the beginning kind of dragged a bit and I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. However, once I got to the middle, I read every free chance I had and I couldn’t put Crazy Dangerous down until I finished the last page. The ending was completely unexpected. I did not see it coming at all. It was definitely a nail biter and all I can say is WOW! (Actually, I think my exact thoughts when I finished the book were “holy crap!!!”)

Sam Hopkins was a fantastic main character. He was so believable and likeable. It was refreshing that he wasn’t written as a goody two-shoes PK (preacher’s kid) or as a bad-to-the-bone PK. He was a normal, teen guy. Crazy Dangerous is written in Sam’s voice. Sam’s narration was like having a conversation with him…he was telling me this incredible story about what happened to him and how he came to follow his new motto – “Do right. Fear nothing.” 

The other main character, Jennifer Sales, was also well-written. I felt for her and I wanted her to get better. I also wanted someone to take her seriously. Although she was the other lead character, her voice was not as a narrator. We learned her story as if we were observing it as a fly on the wall. The reader didn’t get confused by who was narrating…it was always Sam’s story. 

Crazy Dangerous is different from other books that I have read. Different in a good way. I keep thinking about it…even though I am finished with it. It also pleased me that there wasn’t any sex or bad language in this YA book. That was a nice change of pace. 

Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book. It was very good and kept me on the edge of my seat! And be sure to check out Mr. Klavan’s facebook page for Crazy Dangerous!

Will I read it again: Probably not…it just isn’t a multiple read book for me. But I will read more books by Andrew Klavan.

About the book – from the publisher: Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with the wrong crowd. Hanging around with car thieves and thugs, Sam knows it’s only a matter of time before he makes one bad decision too many and gets into real trouble.

But one day, Sam sees these thugs harassing an eccentric schoolmate named Jennifer. Finding the courage to face the bullies down, Sam loses a bad set of friends and acquires a very strange new one.
Because Jennifer is not just eccentric. To Sam, she seems downright crazy. She has terrifying hallucinations involving demons, the devil, and death. And here’s the really crazy part: Sam is beginning to suspect that these visions may actually be prophecies-prophecies of something terrible that’s going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.
With no one to believe him, with no one to help him, Sam is now all alone in a race against time. Finding the truth before disaster strikes is going to be both crazy and very, very dangerous.
