Crazy Dangerous

"You probably want to hear about Jennifer and the demons and how I played chicken with a freight train and—oh yeah—the weird murder . . . you're definitely going to want to hear about that."

Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with a bad crowd. Hanging around with car thieves and thugs, Sam knows it’s only a matter of time before he makes one bad decision too many and gets into real trouble.

But one day, Sam sees them harassing an eccentric schoolmate of his named Jennifer. When Sam finds the courage to face the bullies down, he loses a bad set of friends and acquires a very strange new one.

Because Jennifer is not just eccentric. To Sam, she seems downright crazy. She has terrifying hallucinations involving demons and the devil and death. And here’s the really crazy part: Sam is beginning to suspect that these visions may actually be prophecies—prophecies of something terrible that’s going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.

With no one to believe him, with no one to help him, Sam is now all alone in a race against time. Finding the truth before disaster strikes is going to be both crazy and very, very dangerous.

I can say without a doubt that Crazy Dangerous is the most unique, crazy ride I a book has taken me on. I wasn't sure that I wanted to request a free copy in exchange for an honest review, but decided I needed a different book than I normally read. This certainly was different from my regular genres! I don't want to provide any spoilers, so I'll say that the plot was enough to keep me guessing where the author was going until about 50 pages from the end. It definitely feels supernatural throughout most of the book, and if you enjoy sci-fi this book is probably for you. Be prepared for a unique writing style, which captures Jennifer's illness very well and a bit of violence. All in all, I enjoyed the book and found myself staying up late to figure out what was going to happen.
