Dangerous Girls Blog Tour: Abigail Haas talks Edgy Summer Reads!


Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas || Release date: July 18th 2013.

Paradise quickly gets gruesome in this thrilling page-turner with a plot that’s ripped from the headlines and a twist that defies the imagination.

It’s Spring Break of senior year. Anna, her boyfriend Tate, her best friend Elise, and a few other close friends are off to a debaucherous trip to Aruba that promises to be the time of their lives.

But when Elise is found brutally murdered, Anna finds herself trapped in a country not her own, fighting against vile and contemptuous accusations. As Anna sets out to find her friend’s killer, she discovers harsh revelations about her friendships, the slippery nature of truth, and the ache of young love.

Awaiting the judge’s decree, it becomes clear to Anna that everyone around her thinks she is not only guilty, but also dangerous. And when the whole story comes out, reality is more shocking than anyone ever imagined..

FIVE EDGY YA SUMMER READS




The Basic Eight – Daniel Handler

Told via her prison diaries, a snarky, self-aware teenager’s adventures with her eccentric high school clique result in murder—but how? This book takes a playful, Heathers-esque tone, and the twists and turns in narration will keep you hooked until the last page. 


Then You Were Gone – Lauren Strasnick

Adrienne ignored a desperate, muffled voicemail from her ex-best friend. Now the girl is missing—presumed dead—and Adrienne can’t stop wondering whether she’s to blame. An elegant, emotional mystery that explores the dark side of female friendship. 


Ten – Gretchen McNeil

Ten teens are stranded on a remote island, then someone starts killing them off. This murder mystery has some seriously creepy scenes, and you’ll go crazy trying to guess who’s the killer and why.


When You Were Here – Daisy Whitney

After Danny’s mom dies, leaving him alone in the world as he graduates from high-school, he travels to Tokyo to make sense of her life and find a way to face his own future. Raw and beautifully emotional.


I Hunt Killers – Barry Lyga

What if murder runs in the family? Jasper is the son of the world’s worst serial killer, and although he tries to use his insight for good, he can’t help his natural abilities—or the voice of his father whispering in his mind, pushing him to do dark deeds. Simultaneously shocking and hilarious.
