Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan
I was surprised by how into this book I was. The story grabs you from the beginning and you’re left wondering what kind of thing is going to happen next!
Sam is a preacher’s kid (PK, for short). Everyone in town expects him to be good, but all Sam wants to do is live a normal life, making waves big enough that the cute girls notice him, but small enough waves to stay out of trouble. Things quickly escalate when he stands up to a bully for Jennifer, the local weirdy.
It quickly becomes apparent that Jennifer’s no normal weird girl–there are definitely other issues at play. Is she schizophrenic? Is the devil himself communicating with her? Or is it all one big coincidence? Sam gets wrapped up in a series of disastrous events–but when the time comes, can he save the day?
This novel effectively helps to lessen the stigma associated with mental illness. It addresses the issue of bullying, as well as doing the right thing.
I enjoyed this novel–although I wasn’t sure I would at first. Thankfully, it’s not as demonic as I thought it was going to be, so that made it more enjoyable for me.
If you want a fast paced novel that you can’t put down, check out Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan.
4 out of 5 stars.
