Crazy Dangerous Review

Author: Andrew Klaven

Sam Hopkins is a good kid who's 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 gains 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 of something terrible that's going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.

With no one to believe it, 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. 

Characters: Excellent. The characters are colorful and lifelike, though one or two did seem a bit on the flatter side. Sam is likeable and realistic, an average kid in a not-so-average situation.

Location: Good. The locations were clear and easy to visualize, but not so easy to visualize that the more frightening parts were too frightening. It was fairly easy to tell where places were in relation to other places.   

Plot: Incredible. This book grabs your attention from the very first page and drops you right into the story. It has more than enough action and plot twists to keep you reading, but not so much that you feel like you’ll never get a break.

Other: This book is a bit on the creepier side at times, so I wouldn’t advise reading it at night. It is an excellent book, though, one that I don’t at all regret buying.

Overall Rating: 5/5
