Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: May 1, 2012
"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 and how I found out about it—you're definitely going to want to hear about that. But first, I have to tell you about the stupidest thing I ever did . . ."
Sam Hopkins is bored with his status as a preacher's kid. So when a group of guys notorious for being in trouble offers him friendship, he accepts. Before long, he has several new skills—including hot-wiring cars.
At school, there's an eccentric loner named Jennifer. When Sam defends her from being bullied, she begins to seek him out as her only friend. Her ramblings often seem illogical . . . but then start to contain grains of truth. One leads Sam to discover that one of his new friends has been killed. And then she tells him, "I'm looking for the devil." Sam doesn't know what that means, but he knows it's a matter of life and death that he figure it out.
Everyone else thinks Jennifer is suffering from schizophrenia. But Sam is starting to wonder if there could be something prophetic in her words. Discovering the truth is going to be both crazy and dangerous.
This book has hands down the best first chapter I have ever read! I was so creeped out that I had to keep checking underneath my bed and I even had to turn my hall light on! *shudders* I usually shy away from thriller type books, but this one just grabs you and never lets go!
The story starts out very and I mean VERY creepy with Jennifer dealing with the nightmares in her mind. I was so relived when the POV changed to Sam after that initial chapter because I don't think I could have handled being in Jennifer's mind for the whole book. It was truly terrifying. Sam's POV was the opposite of Jennifer's. He is such a boy and we get to see him deal with bullies and peer pressure from a guys point of view which was fascinating. In the beginning I thought this was just going to be about Sam trying to rescue Jennifer but my oh my was I wrong. There are some major things going on throughout this book and I have to say I am just in shock over them all. This is another one of those books where if I elaborate it will totally ruin it so you will just have to trust me that is awesome.
I really enjoyed this and remember this is definitely not my normal read. I think I need to venture out more from now because I can't imagine missing out on this one. Great book, wonderful characters, and amazing twists!
