First thoughts when I finished DON'T GET CAUGHT? Dang. That was fun!
Kurt Dinan's debut splashes loudly and wildly across the pages, drawing me in from the first chapter and keeping me smiling, bemused, and entertained the whole way through. It's a fabulously fun way to read away an afternoon.
Max is one of those characters I wish I had known in school, and Dinan does a wonderful job of nailing the voice of a teenager. There is a lack of strong male teen leads in YA fiction (in my opinion), so Dinan's voice is a welcome addition to the YA landscape and one that is clearly here to stay.
DON'T GET CAUGHT absolutely caught me off guard. I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book nearly as much as I did, but it's a book I am more than happy to add to my bookshelves. Definitely try this one out as soon as you can!
10:00 tonight at the water tower. Tell no one. -Chaos Club
When Max receives a mysterious invite from the untraceable, epic prank-pulling Chaos Club, he has to ask: why him? After all, he's Mr. 2.5 GPA, Mr. No Social Life. He's Just Max. And his favorite heist movies have taught him this situation calls for Rule #4: Be suspicious. But it's also his one shot to leave Just Max in the dust...
Yeah, not so much. Max and four fellow students-who also received invites-are standing on the newly defaced water tower when campus security "catches" them. Definitely a setup. And this time, Max has had enough. It's time for Rule #7: Always get payback.
Let the prank war begin.
