by Shannon Hale

Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit, see something new. She never intended to fall in love. And she never imagined stumbling into a frightening plot that kills her friends and just might kill her, too. A plot that is already changing life on Earth as we know it. There’s no going back. She is the only thing standing between danger and annihilation.

From NY Times bestselling author Shannon Hale comes a novel that asks, How far would you go to save the ones you love? And how far would you go to save everyone else?

Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians

Bekka rated it ★★★★ and said, “Thanks to Netgalley.com and Bloomsbury USA Childrens Books for early access to this title. I really enjoyed this read! It was suspenseful and interesting pretty much throughout. I think the characters were quite well done, and I love Maisie Danger Brown (her actual name)! The parents were good, and the villains were appropriately evil. The romance was great, and I liked the triangle which had me guessing for a while. This was a great, fast moving plot, and I would Recommend this to pretty much anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi adventure story with a great, strong female lead. A nice departure for Hale, who is so great with the re-told fairy tales! This is a new area for her to excel in.”

Miranda rated it ★★★★★ and said, “Thanks to Netgalley.com and Bloomsbury USA Children’s Books for allowing me access to this. 4.5 stars. I went into this completely blind. I had no idea what to expect. This is NOTHING like her other books, and yet the writing and story are still just as amazing. I thought the little jokes the father told were pretty funny and helped show the positive relationship she had with her parents. I could have done with a little less of the teenager-y angst, “he loves me, he hates me” stuff, but it mostly came together for me and worked in the end. And it was nice to have a love triangle appear and get squashed just as quickly. It gets really old when they drag out, and sometimes friends are just never more than friends. Overall, I think fans of Hale’s other works will enjoy this one. I would also recommend it for fans of Pittacus Lore as it has a similar feel.”
