Being in high school is never easy but it can be more complicated when it includes a set of local bullies and a girl that seems to see and speak to things outside of this world. Sam Hopkins, son of the local pastor, finds himself in several difficult situations and his choice to, “Do Right. Fear Nothing.” Twists and turns continue to keep the reader interested in the mystery behind the story of Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klaven.
For me, the novel was an easy read with believable characters. It was easy to identify with Sam Hopkins and the situations that he ended up facing. You can’t help but root for him as he tries to make the right decision. He has a great voice and you could not help but feel like a real person was sharing his story with you.
It was a little tough to get into at first. Things seemed a little slow and I was not really sure where it was headed. Luckily, I didn’t give up on it because it was well worth the read. My guess is that this book is custom made for kids around middle school or high school age as they will be able to relate to Sam and the idea of wanting to do the right thing even when seems so difficult. Every school has bullies and every school has kids that are a little eccentric. There is a good chance that kids will read this and take a second look at the people around them and what is really going on behind the scenes.
I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
