Firstly, I wanted to start with thanking Bloomsbury Australia for sending me this book to review.
Dangerous, by Shannon Hale, is a YA/Teen Fiction novel about a group of teenagers that entered a competition to be able to go into space. The blurb for this book made me really want to read it, and going into it, I was still super hyped. When I got about 60 pages in, I was losing interest, and about 100 pages in, I realised that it was more of a Teen Fiction or Childrens (ages 9-12 year olds) rather than a Young Adult read. I think that if I had read the book when I was younger, I would have really liked it, because it is really well written, but going into it as a 16 year old, who prefers Young Adult books, I did not find it as engaging as I hoped.
Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit, see something new. She never intended to fall in love. And she never imagined stumbling into a frightening plot that kills her friends and just might kill her, too. A plot that is already changing life on Earth as we know it. There’s no going back. She is the only thing standing between danger and annihilation.
From NY Times bestselling author Shannon Hale comes a novel that asks, How far would you go to save the ones you love? And how far would you go to save everyone else? (Goodreads Summary)
Disclosure: I was sent this book from Bloomsbury in exchange for an honest review.
