Summary (as taken from Amazon):
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 ever imagined...


My Thoughts:
There are so many things I could say about this book.  The girls of Book Hungry will attest to how I went on and on and on and freaking on about the characters, the situation, the twisty ending that shocked the shoes off many.

But, I'm not going to repeat every rant and rave I had for them because 1) I'd end up writing a damned novel, when you can just read DANGEROUS GIRLS for yourself and 2)every point I can think of to explore will undoubtedly spoil some portion of the book for those who haven't read it.

So let me just say this: I knew from the very beginning who killed Elise.  I saw that coming from miles and miles away.  (if you read the book, you'll get the reference in this last line)

That, however, did not lessen my enjoyment of every f***ed up bit of this tale.  And, let me tell you people, if you think the characters in GONE GIRL were crazy, the co-dependent, borderline obsessive relationship between Anna and Elise will have you on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
