Book Blitz: Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas

August 14, 2014 / 0 Comments / Uncategorized

Hi guys, today I’m helping promote Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas, aka Abby McDonald. Normally, I don’t participate in blitzes without reading the book first (my ARC TBR is crazy right now), but I’ve long been a fan of Abby’s work, especially Sophomore Switch and The Popularity Rules, which are both really smart feminist books. She’s an author who really looks at how women are portrayed and what matters to them, and she’s great at turning typical plot points on their heads in surprising ways. 

I haven’t read Dangerous Girls yet, but this companion sounds like a fantastic, twisty thriller. I’ve only heard amazing things about DG, so if you’re at all interested, check out this new release by one of my faves, out today (she’s self-publishing this one as an eBook, and it’s only $5.99)!

Three teens venture into the abandoned lake house 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 jealousy, twisted passion, and the darkness that lurks behind even the most beautiful of faces…

Early Praise

Dangerous Boys is a taut, compelling thriller balanced on the razor’s edge of suspense. I could not put it down, and could not stop grinning wickedly as I raced through the pages.” — Leah Raeder, USA Today bestselling author of Unteachable
“Abigail Haas is a master at her craft! This is a special book and a special author. This is the kind of storytelling and writing that stick with you no matter how much time passes.” — The Book Geek Blog
“As with Dangerous Girls, the closing left me with a huge, admittedly rather twisted smile on my face. I don’t know how Haas manages to turn me into such a gleefully evil creature.” — Dahlia Adler, blogger.
“Dangerous Boys was an intense, psychological read which was full of suspense and drama,…Abigail Haas has a way of writing books which reel you in and keep you there, hooked and addicted until the very last page.” —
