Review: Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas

Thank you to Faye from THE SOCIAL POTATO for running that giveaway! I won!


Three teens venture into the abandoned Monroe estate one night; hours later, only two emerge from the burning wreckage. Chloe drags one Reznick brother to safety, unconscious and bleeding; the other is left to burn, dead in the fire. But which brother survives? And is his death a tragic accident? Desperate self-defense? Or murder? Chloe is the only one with the answers. As the fire rages, and police and parents demand the truth, she struggles to piece together the story of how they got there-a story of jealousy, twisted passion, and the darkness that lurks behind even the most beautiful of faces…

My Rating:


        It plays to my love for all things messed up. Seriously, this novel messes with you big time. I was on WTF mode the whole time (that's a positive response from me). Sorry, I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me give a brief intro. This is a story about Chloe. Very unfortunate Chloe. No rabbit foot Chloe. I-could-pass-off-as-a-Baudelaire-Chloe. At first, it might seem that the story is about how she's dealing with life's bitchiness. But of course, there's more. It then takes us on a terrifyingly vivid journey to Chloe's emancipation. I loved this book because the characters literally change before your eyes. You turn a page and they become so unfamiliar that you seem to be reading a different book altogether. I enjoyed the uncertainty, not knowing or even having the tiniest bit of an idea what will happen next. 

          Another thing that is memorable for me is that this book managed to pique my curiosity. I wanted to know how other people would respond given the same situation Chloe was in. Was it who she really was or is it just a phase? You'll know what I'm talking about when you read it. I recommend it to those who enjoy playing games, not those kinda games, but mind games. Oh and I highly recommend it to people who feels stuck at the moment. I'm not saying to copy the book but it's an option. *wink*

             The reason why it's a 4/5 is because I'm a sucker for the usual endings. I can't go into it too much without any spoilers but let me just say I like my little ducks in a row. It felt kind of anticlimactic somehow because I want explosions at the end, fireworks, a kiss before the camera pans and zooms out to show the credits. Well, that's just me. But I suggest you get up/go online and get yourself a copy of this book. You'll finish it in less than a day I tell ya.

If you've read the book, how will you have reacted if you were in Chloe's shoes? and if you haven't read it then..what are you waiting for?! 


  1. I've never read a negative review of this book. And I know so many people who have read this and Dangerous Girls. So I feel like a loser for not reading it yet. I do have a copy and I'm really hoping I get to read it this year. So many books, so little time.

    1. :) well I'm sure you'll get to it eventually. I just read your monthly recap and sounds like you have a lot on your hands right now. Just take it easy :))

  2. I have never read this book before, but it sounds like it's going to be something good! I have already read so many reviews on this book but not the book itself. Reading each one makes me more excited, and I can't wait to see what I think of it! Thanks for sharing :D



I looooooooove comments! Gimme some love :)
