Book Review: Dangerous Girls

Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas: Paradise quickly gets gruesome in this thrilling page-turner with a plot that’s ripped from the headlines and a twist that defies the imagination.

It’s Spring Break of senior year. Anna, her boyfriend Tate, her best friend Elise, and a few other close friends are off to a debaucherous trip to Aruba that promises to be the time of their lives.

But when Elise is found brutally murdered, Anna finds herself trapped in a country not her own, fighting against vile and contemptuous accusations. As Anna sets out to find her friend’s killer, she discovers harsh revelations about her friendships, the slippery nature of truth, and the ache of young love.

Awaiting the judge’s decree, it becomes clear to Anna that everyone around her thinks she is not only guilty, but also dangerous. And when the whole story comes out, reality is more shocking than anyone ever imagined...

Lori's thoughts: This is a YA that reads like an adult or NA. Not that it's graphic or anything like that. It's not as graphic as it could be, given the fact that the murder victim was stabbed numerous times, it's just...mature. I stopped reading a lot of YA because of the immaturity level. (Yes, I know, YA isn't meant to be as grown up as NA).

I enjoyed this book, and it kept me guessing until the very end. The ending. Wow, just wow. I recommend it highly!

Remember the movie, "Sixth Sense?" at the end when you discovered Bruce Willis was really dead and your mouth dropped open and you wondered WTF? Didn't see that coming! That's how I felt when I got to the end of this book. Two words: "I win."

The only thing I didn't like was the fact that as a Simon and Schuster published book, it was $9.78 for the e-book at the time of purchase. To me, that, seems crazy!

Read it!
