Book Review of DANGEROUS by Shannon Hale

Dangerous

There are many twists and turns you’ll never predict. You

won’t know who the bad guys are and who is good. Things

seem so bleak and dark at times you can’t imagine how

anything good will turn out.

Maisie Danger Brown can actually say “Danger’s my middle

name.” Her parents were funny like that. Maisie is not a

typical teenager. She’s been pretty sheltered.  She lives in

Salt Lake City and she’s home schooled. Being raised by two

scientist parents makes her very book smart. Her only

friend is Luther, a boy from her neighborhood. She always

dreamed of being an Astronaut. When an opportunity to

attend Astronaut summer boot camp in Texas comes along

she jumps at the chance.  She wants to get out and see more

of the world.

When I first heard about this book I was excited to read

about a female superhero. This story wasn’t what I expected.

I thought it would be more comic book style. You know a lot

of …

I was pleasantly surprised the story was even better. It has a

realistic scientific feel to the process of becoming a

superhero.

If you read Sci-fi books like “Ender’s Game” or enjoyed the

movie you’ll love this book. It sort of reminds me of the

1986 movie Space Camp. But only at the beginning of the

book, this story takes on a whole new original twist.

I loved Luther and his usage of “Frak.” (It made me think of

Battlestar Galactica. The old and much better one. My

husband doesn’t agree. But turning Starbuck into a girl was

detrimental in my eyes.)

Dangerous even has a great romance. This is my kind of

story— a mix of Superheroes, Sci-fi, Romance, and all

wrapped nicely in a YA novel.
