Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas


From Goodreads:

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 hard truths about her friendships, the slippery nature of truth, and the ache of young love.

As she awaits the judge’s decree, it becomes clear that everyone around her thinks she is not just guilty, but dangerous. When the truth comes out, it is more shocking than one could ever imagine…




This is me before reading Dangerous Girls:



While reading it:


When I finished it:


The following week.. and probably the following years of my life:



I wish that is enough but No, I’m not gonna stop there. You see, Abigail Haas is like a hidden gem for me. She’s this author who is not given the right  exposure. So until everyone has read this precious, I’ll continue recommending it.

Here’s a short summary. Okay, no, I’m not gonna write a short summary because I can’t do it without spoiling anything. It’s so haaard to review this book. You have no idea how I wanted to DNF it because it has something I do not want in a book: CHEATING. Ohhhh, I hate cheating with a passion. And I’m not sure I’m not the only one, so when this was first recommended to me, I avoided it! But then, the buzz about Dangerous Boys started and DG was recommended more and more to me. SO, I gave it a chance. And how glad am I that I did.

Haas’s writing is gripping and readable. She doesn’t use overly deep words or fill her sentences with metaphors but her writing is utterly compelling. I do not kid when I say I’ve finish this in 2 hours. I suddenly forgot about my bladder and my hunger at that time. DG is in a alternating present-past POV. And Anna narrates it. Oh this girl, this Anna. You will not help but give her sympathy. Her voice is real and authentic. Like everything she says is.. real. That’s why  every time I thought that I got it all figured out.. doubt creeps in. So I read more, and then realization comes in that I REALLY DON’T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON.


DG is centered around Elise’s death. Who killed her? Why? When and how did it happen? And of course I got my own suspects as well but nothing prepared me for that ending. Look, I’ve thought of that while reading. But Haas just exploded it on my face! Slapped me with how much of a genius she is and how she got away with it. I did a back read.. a lot of times and yeah, all I can say is GIVE ME YOUR BRAIN ABIGAIL HAAS. I want it. Overall, Dangerous Girls is not a book to be missed. BELIEVE ME! You want a fantastic and well written murdery/thriller read? THIS IS IT.

    YES! I AM SO GLAD YOU LIKED THIS SO MUCH PAULA! You can join the cool table now that you’ve read it! ;) This is one of my all-time favorites (5 stars from me too!) and I completely agree with everything you’ve said. The genius of this book is really that every character has a tidbit to them that could potentially mark them as the murderer, so it’s a risky game of process of elimination. The reveal at the end was spectacular though, was it not? ;)

    Thanks for sharing, and BRILLIANT review! I’m just so glad you liked this as much as I did!

      Get into it, Ashtyn! I SWEAR YOU’RE NOT GONNA REGRET IT. I personally loved DG more than DB. But I guess it’s because I’ve read it first. Anyway, it’s both genius and worth your time!

      Thanks Ashtyn :D

    I have heard nothing but amazing reviews gushing about this book and Dangerous Boys as well. So glad you enjoyed it! I’m not a fan of cheating as well, and the thought really makes my blood boil. But if the storyline is compelling, then I will definitely still give the book a chance. I have a copy on my iPad, can’t wait to dive into it. Thanks for the awesome review, and the images made me laugh haha!

    Gnagnagna, IKR? It’s like what.is.going.on. And I was so stressed out the whole time I was reading. You could see my leg shaking XD The MC was so innocent *snorts*, calm and easy to connect to that that’s what made it even more extraordinary in the end. The ending needs analyzation. At least more than I did. I can’t believe those people at TV *SPOILERS*…….were right! I was like WTH? shut up when they were judging her but damn, they were right! Sorry, I got carried away. ».«
