Three teens venture into the abandoned Monroe estate one night; hours later, only two emerge from the burning wreckage. Chloe drags one Reznick brother to safety, unconscious and bleeding; the other is left to burn, dead in the fire. But which brother survives? And is his death a tragic accident? Desperate self-defense? Or murder?
Chloe is the only one with the answers. As the fire rages, and police and parents demand the truth, she struggles to piece together the story of how they got there – a story of jealously, twisted passion, and the darkness that lurks behind even the most beautiful of faces…
OMG, this book.
When this book arrived on my Kindle at 12:04 AM on August 14th, I basically put all other books aside to throw myself into it, and I don’t regret it. I read Dangerous Girlslast year and it was one of my favorite reads of 2013, so I went into Dangerous Boyswith some very high expectations, and it met them. While there are a lot of similarities between the two in terms of how the books are structured, Chloe’s story is wildly different from Anna’s, and this was one book I couldn’t put down.
I loved watching the threads in Dangerous Boys come together. I loved how my opinions changed about the characters in an instant, loved making guesses of where the story would go next or what was going to happen, loved piecing together the clues Chloe gave us as she told her story. I was both repulsed and amazed by the characters, and I so badly wanted to see how it would all turn out while also desperately not wanting the book to end. I both loved and was horrified by the ending.
I can’t wait to see what Abigail Haas comes out with next.
