Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan


Be sure to pick this one up for your teenage boy. I think it will keep him hooked and provide some positive themes and lessons that are missing in other popular books.

In one case, the main character does the right thing by standing up for a girl. In the process he is merked. He comments about the experience afterward mentioning the fact that sometimes the right thing doesn’t actually feel too good. It’s the truth. The maxim that tells us to do whatever feels good doesn’t mesh well with reality.

In his attempt to clear his name and find the truth, Sam Hopkins, the main character, lives out an overtly Christian worldview. He is a pastor’s kid that seems sincere about living a meaningful life. There are just dangerous parts to that life. I don’t think my pastor’s kid upbringing compares, but that’s OK.

This Christian parent (and pastor’s kid for that matter) is thankful for Klavan’s worldview that matches with Jesus’ true words of spirit and life.
