Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7-11-Harper can't believe that Logan Townsend has fallen for her of all people. He's everything that a dream boyfriend should be: handsome, sensitive, attentive, and crazy about her. The only drawback is his disturbed twin brother. When bad things start happening in her small town of Enumclaw, Washington, she immediately suspects that Daemon is involved. Cow bones appear in mailboxes, flocks of birds are found dead, and Harper finds roses in her locker with the portentous words "I'm watching you" attached. Logan insists that his brother isn't behind all of the bedlam, but Harper isn't so sure. As she begins to unravel the mystery of the Townsend twins, she finds that the answer may be perilous. Hubbard hits the ground running with a heart-racing prologue. The story then builds with a slow burn and an ominous air. The resolution, though, is Hubbard's Achilles' heel. The book has so much potential as a modern take on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde but falls flat with an unbelievable conclusion instead. Still, fans of mystery thrillers who are looking for a light read will find it enjoyable.-Kimberly Castle-Alberts, Hudson Library & Historical Society, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Harper is racing for her life. Her pursuer is gaining ground behind her as she thrashes through the wet woods. Finally she can go no farther, trapped on the cliff rising above the Green River. Harper turns around and finds him gazing at her, dark eyes murderous. Now cut back in time one month earlier to a happy, lovestruck Harper. She can hardly believe that Logan, the gorgeous new boy in town, has picked her to be his girlfriend. His smile brightens up a room, while his dark eyes are kind and doting. Meanwhile, strange events are happening in her town. Bloodied cow bones show up in mailboxes, dead birds are strewn across a parking lot, and stop signs disappear from intersections. When Harper and her friends become victims of violent “accidents,” Harper suspects that her new love is somehow involved. The atmospheric setting of a small town set on the banks of the Green River in Washington—burial grounds for the notorious Green River Killer—adds to the Hitchcockesque tension. Hand to fans of Lois Duncan’s thrillers. Grades 7-12. --Diane Colson

By Liviania VINE VOICE on August 30, 2012
Format: Hardcover
DANGEROUS BOY starts in media res, with a girl running from a boy who wants to kill her and who has already killed once. Then it jumps back a month to show how that girl came to be running for her life through the rain.

The girl is Harper and the place is Enumclaw, Washington. It's one of those towns that's half-rural, half-suburban. Harper and her friends fall into the rural part of that equation. But Harper is no tough, strapping farm girl. She's pretty timid all around, on top of her ten big fears, which all relate to her mother's untimely death by extreme sports. Her boyfriend Logan has been doing his best to draw her out of her shell. Then she meets Logan's twin, Daemon. Daemon has to be homeschooled because he did something so bad in their old hometown that they had to leave.

The first half of DANGEROUS BOY was hard for me to put down. It wasn't just wanting to reach that heart-pounding opening scene. There's an extremely creepy atmosphere permeating DANGEROUS BOY. There's suddenly hundreds of dead birds. There are bloody handprints on every car in the school parking lot. People Harper cares about have strange accidents. She receives invasive letters from a stalker.

But then I really slowed down. It got to be too much. As multiple people tell Harper, she really needed to go to the cops. Yet she not only keeps things secret, she keeps trying for face-to-face confrontations with Daemon. I could maybe believe her stubborn insistence on facing down the creeper herself if she hadn't been established as a total scaredy-cat. When she tries to investigate the twins' past, she drives to Cedar Cove but spends her entire time reading the school's newspaper on microfiche instead of talking to people.

It started out so good. And turned around just as quickly.

We immediately start off with Harper running from "him," whoever "him" is. I'm a big fan of when novels start out this way. It really sucks me in and gets me wanted to figure out who the mystery man is, how our main character ended up in the situation, and how they are going to get out of it.

Jump backward a month. Harper, her friends, and new boyfriend, Logan, are eating at a pizza restaurant discussing... I can't remember. Things teenagers discuss. Logan is new in town, having moved in with his uncle after his parents died, and pretty much immediately began dating Harper.

Harper lives on a dairy farm with her father, her mother having died. Due to her mother's death Harper has a list of fears: things her mother did that scare her. Four wheeling, speaking in public, riding quads, driving on the freeway, etc. Now I haven't lost anybody close to me in a tragic accident, but I think this list is dumb. Driving on the freeway? Speaking in public? Probably not going to get far in life with those fears.

The biggest issue I had with this list is that Harper's friends have been attempting to get her to do things on this list for years. Logan has been around for a month, prods a little bit, and she's knocking things off her list left and right. Really? I can't blame her friends when they gave her grief for this. I would have, too.

Harper was pretty hard, internally, on Allie. She would comment that Allie wasn't around ever since she started dating Harper's cousin Adam. Allie was around a lot. She was there for Harper when things got weird and rough with Logan at every turn. And Harper never said anything to Allie about it, not a word.

Ok I really did like and enjoyed Dangerous Boy, and I thought it was a really good book. But I just didn't love it as much, now the beginning of the book got my attention right away. But than I started too really get annoyed with the main character Harper. I can't put my finger on way I didn't like her. I just didn't feel connected with her at all don't get me wrong. I felt bad for everything that happen to her, especially a tragic event that happen to her in her family. But they way she was acting towards her friends and father really annoyed and frustrated me too no end. Ok ok I understand she is the way she is because of the tragic event, and she has a whole bucket list for that specific reason. But still I really did not like how she was acting so differently towards her father and friends from her boyfriend Logan. She totally treated him like he is the best boyfriend in the whole world and that he has no flaws. And that he is just pure right for her to get her out of her shell. But that's until she find's out that he has been lying and hiding deep secrets from her. And secrets and lies she would soon find out about him at the end. All in all I really did like and enjoyed Dangerous Boy but I just didn't love it as much. But it still is a really good book. That I know some readers will love and enjoy it more than I did!

Borrowed this ebook from the library and glad I didn't invest in it as it wasn't really my type of book after all. Starts off okay, but by the middle, I was skipping pages because I didn't like the main character. She felt wishy-washy and couldn't follow through with anything. Also, the synopsis ruined the "big reveal" so it was just a matter of waiting for the character to realize what I as the reader already knew, which was frustrating. The ending was also fairly obvious by the mid-stage or so.

Overall, I won't be recommending it to anyone or really taking note of it again.
