Dangerous Boy by Mandy Hubbard - ADVISABLE

Hubbard, Mandy  Dangerous Boy, 262 pgs.  Razobill, 2012.  $17.99  Content: Language: PG-13 (36 swears; 4 “F”; 8 God); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG. 
Harper has a hot new boyfriend, Logan.  He makes her weak in the knees and she can’t believe how lucky she is.  Logan makes Harper want to try new things and overcome her fears, but he seems to have a big secret.  When Harper shows up at Logan’s house unannounced she meets a cold, scary Logan look-a-like and is relieved to find out that its Logan’s twin brother Daemon.  However, when weird things start happening around town and specifically to Harper, she digs deeper into Logan’s past and is surprised and what she finds.  
This is a spooky, suspenseful mystery full of twists and turns.  At one point in the story the ending becomes predictable, but overall the main character and the minor characters are easy to like so you can’t wait to read what happens to them.  As far as interest, I think middle school readers would love this book, but the four “F” words need to be noted.
