“What would you do if nobody was watching? If nobody would ever know?”

Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas is one sick story and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It’s impossible for me to write this review without comparing it to Dangerous Girls, just in terms of the style and type of story. (No Spoilers!)
They’re different, as they should be, but equally brilliant. Whereas DG left me with that OMG WTF moment, here everything moves slowly, towards that inevitable end. It’s like a train wreck, you can’t stop it and you can’t look away.

With DG we were trying to figure out who did it, who committed the crime; here you might guess it but that’s beside the point. The beauty is in watching it all unfold. Furthermore, whereas in DG focus was on the plot, here it’s on the characters. And what amazing, disturbing characters did Haas create.

The story is told in two parts – past THEN and present NOW and it’s about three people – Chloe and brothers Ethan and Oliver and how they got to that part THE END.

I really don’t want to reveal anything, it’s best if you just pick up this book and get lost in it. I’ve read it in one sitting, it was so engaging; not quite in DG sense – what’s going to happen next, it was more edgy the whole time, with that fear of what’s going to happen.

This book disturbed me, whereas DG shocked me. I cannot a pick a favorite because I love them both equally and I think they’re both amazing and successful in what they tried to portray.

What do we hide within us? Who are we when no one is watching?

Moreover, this book will make you question. Because, after all, is there true good or true evil? The only thing left are the choices.

Therefore, this is a book is about pretending, being who we think others expect us to be; wanting something more and not being afraid to take it. It will also make you wonder – what lurks in the darkest corners of human minds?

In conclusion, this was one brilliant psychological thriller and I.just.want.more.
Abigail Haas’ mind is a dangerous place and I’d be lying if I say I wouldn’t like one more trip there.
