Book: Dangerous Girls
Author: Abigal Haas

Paradise in Aruba quickly gets gruesome in this “ripped-from-the-headlines thriller (Kirkus Reviews)” with a twist that defies the imagination.

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 harsh revelations about her friendships, the slippery nature of truth, and the ache of young love.

Awaiting the judge’s decree, it becomes clear to Anna that everyone around her thinks she is not only guilty, but also dangerous. And when the whole story comes out, reality is more shocking than anyone could ever imagine...

What I have to say:
The carefree Spring Break set in Aruba comes to a halt when one of the Spring Breakers- Elise- is found murdered. This book takes us back to high school as we learn how the friendship with Elise and Anna started, and the dynamic of their friendship. We also get caught up in Spring Break and try and figure out the events that led to Elise's murder, and whether or not Anna is innocent, and who the killer might be.

Final Verdict:
This is one of the top three books I've read in 2019. Loved this book and recommend it to everyone. A pick for my book club, it was a favourite among our group. You get drawn into the story, the characters, their relationships, and what really happened on Spring Break. Great twist at the end. Highly recommend this book!!
