DNF Review: Dangerous


Publication Date: March 4th 2014

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?


While Dangerous was fun and hilarious in a lot of places, and while I loved that our MC was a one-handed half Latina, and our main cast were mostly multi-cultural, and above all else, Sci-FI, I had to DNF at 45% because I honestly couldn't take much more it. Besides the little Knicks and knacks here and there, the two main reasons I didn't it was the pacing and constant bitchy/sarcastic thoughts.
I thought I was going to love it, I really did. It started off great, and Maisie immediately sucked me in, she was level headed, knew what she wanted and wasn't letting her disability get in her way. She was home-schooled, but she wasn't hidden from the world because of her disability or what people would think. She knew what people would think, and I don't think it bothered her at all, or at least, not that much, she was focused on what she wanted. she was self-sufficient really,  and while she may not have been as confident as she seemed, she was a strong character for her age,  and used her humour to charm people.
