“Crazy Dangerous” by Andrew Klaven
“Crazy Dangerous” was a book I couldn’t put down. I really wanted to know what would happen next and to know what the twists were. And let me tell you there a BIG twists in this book. I had a hard time coming up with how to review this book without giving any thing away. I want you to read it and get the same goose bumps I got.
Sam Hopkins is a PK (Pastor’s Kid), he’s expected to be good all the time and fells the pressure all around him. Once day he stands up to some really bad kids/bullies and they invite in into their group. He goes along with it in hope to shed the “good guy” rep he has hated for so long. They teach him how to break into cars and steal things. Things get out of hand when the boys start picking on and hurting on of Sam’s classmates, Jennifer. She has some mental disorders and speaks in rhythm, even if it doesn’t make sense. Sam stands up to the bullies and becomes somewhat a hero.
Jeniffer thinks Sam is her “magic friend” that can save her from the bad things she is seeing in her head. Sam doesn’t know what to do about how Jeniffer feels but he starts to put together the visions she is having and finding out there is more to it all.
This book will keep you of the edge of your seat. You never know what will happen next. You’ll find yourself pulled into the story, not wanting to leave until you find out if everything will be ok. I would recommend this book for boy/girls ages, 14-100+. I hope to read more books by Andrew Klaven, I really love his writing and I’m a new fan.
“”You probably want to hear about Jennifer and the demons and how I played chicken with a freight train and—oh yeah—the weird murder . . . you’re definitely going to want to hear about that.”
Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with a bad 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 them harassing an eccentric schoolmate of his named Jennifer. When Sam finds the courage to face the bullies down, he 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 and 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.”
