"Master storyteller Hale takes readers to dizzying new heights . . . A can't-miss adventure." --Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken In this thrilling sci-fi adventure, New York Times bestselling author Shannon Hale asks the question: 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.

I loved every second of this book!! It's a bit . . . 'too much' for younger audiences so I'd wait until you're at least twelve to read this. One of Hale's best books yet and 'dangerously addicting'!!

This book was awesome!! I would highly recommend it to anyone around the age of 11 or 12.
An awesome read, with romance and adventure.

After reading Shannon Hale's Princess Academy books, I was surprised by the sci-fi style in which this book is written. While the plot is good, and I do like the main character, I have a few things that bug me, such as Wilder's pattern of nice, then not, then nice, then not, and the lack of better description of secondary characters. Overall, though, this book was enjoyable and a good, if not realistic, adventure.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I really enjoyed the adventure, mystery,and action in it! And even though it said for teens (I'm a couple years younger) I think anyone around twelve years old should be fine, I was brave enough to try it at eleven years old XD. By the way if you think its to scary when you see it or read the first few chapters, you don't have to read it.

"Maisie Danger Brown is hardly the standard superhero type: she's a frighteningly smart, homeschooled, half-Paraguayan science nerd who was born without a right hand. She longs to become an astronaut, so she's beyond thrilled to win a spot at space camp, where she and her team get to ride the cutting-edge space elevator. The trip, however, exposes Maisie and her friends to alien nanotechnology, giving them astonishing superpowers that they don't understand and might not be able to control. With fast pacing, nonstop action, and plenty of romantic tension, Dangerous is a great pick for readers of superhero comics as well as for Shannon Hale's devoted fans."
