I enjoy seeing what best-selling authors do when they attempt to switch genres, especially famous authors who begin writing young adult fiction, such as Andrew Klavan. One of his newest YA books is called Crazy Dangerous–a story about Sam, a preacher’s kid who just wants to be “normal.”
Sam, however, can’t stand bullies, so when some new friends start tormenting a girl because they think is crazy, Sam stands up for her. He even starts to believe the girl, Jennifer, might not be as crazy as everyone else thinks. Life because crazy and dangerous for Sam when he decides to act on what Jennifer tells him.
Crazy Dangerous is a captivating book, with interesting characters and plot. Klavan knows how to write a suspenseful story without giving away too much too soon. I would recommend Crazy Dangerous to teens and adults.
