Award-winning, bestselling author Shannon Hale's new teen science fiction novel, which New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner James Dashner calls, "One of the best books I've ever read. Ever."
     How far would you go to save the world?
     When Maisie Danger Brown nabbed a spot at a NASA-like summer boot camp, she never expected to uncover a conspiracy that would change her life forever.
     And she definitely didn't plan to fall in love.
     But now there's no going back—Maisie's the only thing standing between the Earth and annihilation. She must become the hero the world needs. The only problem is: how does a regular girl from Salt Lake City do that, exactly? It's not as though there's a handbook for this sort of thing. It's up to Maisie to come up with a plan—and find the courage to carry it out—before she loses her heart . . . and her life.
     Equal parts romance and action-adventure, this explosive story is sure to leave both longtime Shannon Hale fans and avid science fiction readers completely breathless.

Editorial Reviews

"One of the best books I've ever read. Ever. It's chock full of intrigue, suspense, and clever, authentic, wonderful humor. I'm in love with this book." -James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner"Master storyteller Hale takes readers to dizzying new heights. Layered with gritty action and heartfelt characters, Dangerous is a can't-miss adventure." -Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy"Fast paced and action packed, bubbling over with ideas and full of heart, Dangerous is a dangerously addictive read." -Scott Westerfeld, New York Times bestselling author of the Leviathan and Uglies series"Maisie Danger Brown is Danny Dunn and Nelly Bly rolled into one. Hale mashes up her science and her superheroes with aliens and a terrestrial villain or two, then stirs in just the right amount of wonder and delight. I loved this book." -Megan Whalen Turner, Newbery-Honor winning author of The Thief"Dangerous is exactly that--you will not be able to put this book down, nor will you be able to get its fantastic heroine, Maisie Brown, out of your head." -Ally Condie, New York Times bestselling author of Matched"Shannon Hale's books blow me away. when I read them I get lost in the magic--her stories ARE magic." -Stephenie Meyer, author of Twilight"Girl power abounds . . . A change of pace that largely succeeds, showing that Hale's range is wider than her readers might have expected." -Kirkus Reviews"An action-packed SF thriller with plenty of surprises and an intriguing premise." -Publishers Weekly"This adventure, sci-fi, romance novel will keep readers engrossed. Hale's audience will likely extend with this new dimension in her writing." -Library Media Connection"This fast-paced science fiction novel with echoes of the "Fantastic Four" comics doesn't let up for a moment . . . A must-read for fans of superhero adventures." -School Library Journal"Hale fans will easily find much to appreciate in the well-developed setting and sturdy girl characters in this new genre for the author." -BCCB"Maisie is an intelligent, self-aware hero, even when in the throes of romance." -Booklist"Hale writes her first suspenseful science fiction novel with great success. Maisie Danger Brown is a strong, smart, unique character. . . .
