Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan Blog Tour

About the Book: Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with the wrong crowd. Hanging around with car thieves and thugs, Sam knows it's only a matter of time before he makes one bad decision too many and gets into real trouble. But one day, Sam sees these thugs harassing an eccentric schoolmate named Jennifer. Finding the courage to face the bullies down, Sam loses a bad set of friends and acquires a very strange new one. Because Jennifer is not just eccentric. To Sam, she seems downright crazy. She has terrifying hallucinations involving demons, the devil, and death. And here's the really crazy part: Sam is beginning to suspect that these visions may actually be prophecies-prophecies of something terrible that's going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.

My Thoughts - What a fabulous read!! Sam is a preacher's kid and gets bullied and harassed alot.  He just wants to fit in and find his place as well as understand the good and the evil in the world.  He finds himself pulled into a classmate's hallucinations - Jennifer.  Her hallucinations involve demons, death and the devil and Sam wonders if she is crazy.  But if she isn't, then their small town is in a whole heap of trouble and he and Jennifer need to save it.

Told from Sam's point of view, Crazy Dangerous is modern and realistic, with morals and values embedded in it's entertaining pages.  Fantastic character development and dialogue, I was quickly immersed in Sam's world - from trying to do the right thing, to his conscience talking to him about knowing he is doing something wrong.  The wrong crowd can lead you astray if you're not careful.   A fast-paced read that will have you laughing out loud and gasping in shock, the plot twists and turns and left this reader thoroughly satisfied.  One of the best YA novels this year - don't miss it!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
