Overview

A modern-day retelling of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde with a chilling twist

Harper has never been worried about falling in love, something she is skeptical even exists. But everything changes when Logan moves to town, and to Harper's shock, the two tumble into an intense romance. It's everything she never thought she wanted.

Then she meets Logan's twin brother, Caleb, who was expelled from his last school. True, he's a bad boy, but Harper can't shake the feeling that there's something deeply sinister about him—something dangerous. When Logan starts pulling away, Harper is convinced that Caleb's shadowy past is the wedge being driven between them. But by the time she uncovers the truth, it may be too late.

The author of Prada & Prejudice, You Wish, and Ripple delivers a modern-day retelling of a famously gothic tale, full of suspense, lies, and romance.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hubbard's (Prada and Prejudice) thriller is genuinely creepy, but a teaser prologue and a telegraphed ending diffuse the story's tension. Though farm daughter Harper has a lot going for her—she's gorgeous, smart, and effortlessly popular—she misses her mother, who died while rock climbing, and is fearful of the outside world, even keeping a list of the things that scare her. Also, strange circumstances in her small town (including thousands of mysterious bird corpses and bloody cow bones left in mailboxes) have her especially on edge. Harper has recently fallen for hot new hunk Logan, who urges her to overcome her phobias, but a visit to his house reveals his homeschooled twin brother, Daemon, the nasty antithesis of Logan. Logan's decision to hide Daemon's existence from Harper throws a spanner into their relationship. Hubbard drives the action forward at an engrossing pace, but as the denouement hits, the "twist" is so obvious that Harper's obliviousness to it comes across as unbelievable. Readers who can look past the predictability will be drawn into the horror-tinged story. Ages 12–up. (Aug.)
VOYA - Nancy Pierce
Harper feels like the luckiest girl in the world when she starts dating Logan. He is the new guy at their high school, good-looking, charming—someone she definitely feels is out of her league. Now Harper does not feel like the third wheel with her cousin, Adam, and his girlfriend Allie. But then odd things start to happen....hundreds of birds die, stop signs go missing, and then Logan begins to act odd, even scary. Harper begins to receive harassing Facebook posts and strange messages at school. The terrifying reality behind her troubles might be Logan's twin brother, or maybe it is someone else. There are times Harper wonders if she will survive to learn the truth. Dangerous Boy touches on a basic hope and fear of many younger girls—"I want a dream boyfriend, but if I get him, what if he is too good to be true?" It will definitely speak to many girls—feeling like an outsider, neglected by family, being the third wheel, and snagging the dreamy boy. But when things start to go wrong in a relationship, Harper believes the excuses because the truth is not something she wants to face. Harper and her friends have an inordinate amount of freedom to get in trouble and face their fears—adults are conveniently absent. There is also a convoluted, convenient, and fairly hard to believe explanation for the drama Harper and her friends experience once Logan comes into their lives. It is convoluted, but satisfying to many a high school reader. Reviewer: Nancy Pierce
VOYA - Erin Carlson
Dangerous Boy is a very good book. It is well written with a lot of drama in the story. It pulls the reader in; you want to keep reading to see what will happen next. It is a love story but not too much of a love story—it is just right. The prologue gives away too much too soon, but overall, it is an enjoyable read that other teens will enjoy as well. Reviewer: Erin Carlson, Teen Reviewer
School Library Journal
Gr 7–11—Harper can't believe that Logan Townsend has fallen for her of all people. He's everything that a dream boyfriend should be: handsome, sensitive, attentive, and crazy about her. The only drawback is his disturbed twin brother. When bad things start happening in her small town of Enumclaw, Washington, she immediately suspects that Daemon is involved. Cow bones appear in mailboxes, flocks of birds are found dead, and Harper finds roses in her locker with the portentous words "I'm watching you" attached. Logan insists that his brother isn't behind all of the bedlam, but Harper isn't so sure. As she begins to unravel the mystery of the Townsend twins, she finds that the answer may be perilous. Hubbard hits the ground running with a heart-racing prologue. The story then builds with a slow burn and an ominous air. The resolution, though, is Hubbard's Achilles' heel. The book has so much potential as a modern take on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde but falls flat with an unbelievable conclusion instead. Still, fans of mystery thrillers who are looking for a light read will find it enjoyable.—Kimberly Castle-Alberts, Hudson Library & Historical Society, OH
Kirkus Reviews
Danger threatens when Harper falls for the perfect boyfriend, maybe. Harper can't believe that sensitive, handsome Logan really wants her to be his exclusive girlfriend. She's just a farm girl who doesn't even wear makeup. But Logan sweeps her off her feet and seems to feel the same about her. When disturbing things begin to happen around town--birds fall, dead, from the sky, bloody bones turn up in mailboxes, red handprints cover students' cars--no one can make any sense of it. Harper has her suspicions, however, once she meets someone she didn't even know existed: Daemon, Logan's identical twin brother. Daemon enjoys violence and deliberately frightens Harper. Harper grows more suspicious of Daemon when a sabotaged motorbike sends her to the hospital, and someone nearly kills her friend. She investigates and learns about some things in Logan's past that he has hidden. Still, she's so attracted to him, and he begs her so effectively to stay, that she continues the relationship, and that decision could lead to her death. Hubbard begins with an exciting, frightening chase scene then flashes back to tell the story in sequence. Astute readers will pick up on the solution to the mystery from miles away, but that only heightens the suspense, especially as they have already tasted that chase scene. The difficulty here is the cop-out, too-easy resolution: The author briefly presents an interesting, realistic scenario to explain the mystery but bows to current trends and pushes a nonsensical paranormal solution instead. What a shame. The fun here is in getting to the silly resolution, not achieving it. (Paranormal suspense. 12 & up)

Meet the Author

Mandy Hubbard grew up on a dairy farm outside Seattle, where she refused to wear high heels until homecoming—and hated them so much she didn't wear another pair for five years. A cowgirl at heart, she likes riding horses and four-wheelers and singing horribly to the latest country tune.
