Fiction: Dangerous by Shannon Hale

Romance, adventure, humor… Dangerous by Shannon Hale is a roller coaster of a book.

Dangerous book cover“Humming the Star Wars theme to encourage myself, I wobbled onto my feet. Sometimes a girl’s gotta provide her own trumpet-heavy heroic soundtrack.”

Maisie Danger Brown might only have one fully-functioning arm, but she isn’t going to let that stop her from becoming an astronaut. Her dreams seem like they have a chance of coming true, when she wins a place in a space camp joining other teenagers across the country for a three week intensive program. It isn’t long, however, before she unearths an undercover plot that might wipe out Earth as we know it.
