This week's Book Tour Tuesday is, Dangerous by Shannon Hale. This book seriously is one you will not put down once you pick it up. It is that good and fast of a read.
It's about a girl, Maisie, who is accepted into a astronaut boot camp with a lot of other smart kids. When a group of the kids at this NASA-style boot camp gets the opportunity to see something out of this world, things change for Maisie. She is now part of a group of kids that have the opportunity to save the world, but it isn't easy.
Through this story, it is fast paced to begin with. I was captured with the character of Maisie from the beginning. She is a very intelligent girl who decides to write an essay for a contest that is on the back of a cereal box. After being accepted, she is just like anyone else who would win a contest to a NASA-style boot camp, excited and unsure about the adventure before her.
I love every aspect of this story. I love love love the characters! I love the character growth and depth, and Shannon Hale does a great job in her details. Not too much and not too little. Just enough to make you believe you are reading an action/science fiction movie. It only took me about three days (without kids, it would be about one full day) to read this book. I am very grateful to my friend who recommended the story to me one day and said I just had to read it. That's what I recommend to you today. GO READ THIS! It's great for pre-teens who have read The Hunger Games, Cinder, or anything else in this genre.
Shannon Hale easily became one of my all-time favorite authors through this story. I can't wait to read more by her and await eagerly to see what Shannon has next up her sleeve to capture us all.
Get out there, get reading (especially this book!) and get writing!
