Staff Reviews


Maisie Danger Brown is not a girl to be trifled with--and you have to read her story. Dangerous is a book full of witty lines, scientific inventions, and aliens--and I can't recommend it enough. It seems that each Shannon Hale book I read is different from the last; she's always coming up with unique and engaging plots. One of my favorite features in this book (besides the protagonist being a one-armed homeschooler) is that Maisie's parents are very present and interactive. Upon hearing that she's been infected with some alien entity that's giving her superpowers, they're scientists and respond with a, "Well this will be a great learning experience!" which is pretty awesome. I've been seeing Dangerous mostly in the YA section, but I think it's readable to middle-graders and adults too, and boys and girls alike.

Description


"How far would you go to save the world?"When Maisie Danger Brown nabbed a spot at a NASA-like summer boot camp, she never expected to uncover a conspiracy that would change her life forever.And she definitely didn't plan to fall in love.But now there's no going back--Maisie's the only thing standing between the Earth and annihilation. She must become the hero the world needs. The only problem is: how does a regular girl from Salt Lake City do that, exactly? It's not as though there's a handbook for this sort of thing. It's up to Maisie to come up with a plan--and find the courage to carry it out--before she loses her heart . . . and her life.Equal parts romance and action-adventure, this explosive story is sure to leave both longtime Shannon Hale fans and avid science fiction readers completely breathless.
