Do Right, Fear Nothing.
Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with the wrong crowd. Hanging around with car thieves and thugs, Sam knows it’s only a matter of time before he makes one bad decision too many and gets into real trouble.
But one day, Sam sees these friends harassing an eccentric schoolmate named Jennifer. Finding the courage to face the bullies down, Sam loses a bad set of friends and acquires a very strange new one.
Jennifer is not just eccentric. To Sam, she seems downright crazy. She has terrifying hallucinations involving demons, the devil, and death. And here’s the really crazy part: Sam is beginning to suspect that these visions may actually be prophecies—prophecies of something terrible that’s going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.
With no one to believe him, with no one to help him, Sam is all alone in a race against time. Finding the truth before disaster strikes is going to be both crazy and very, very dangerous.

My 15-year-old son has to read for school. Hates reading. He read this in less than a week and enjoyed it. I have rarely heard him compliment a book and he said it was good. He did liked Hunger games, Diary of a wimpy Kid, and Captain underpants but that is all I can remember through the years. I bought him a series of 4 books by Andrew Klavan and he has already read the first one of those. My 17-year-old daughter is reading this and she also likes it.
Andrew Klavan is a wonderful story teller. I have read 7 of his books for teens/young adults and find them spell-binding and not sure of what will happen until the end. I'm 65 and liked all 7 of his books that I read.
I discovered this author by chance while searching for books for my then 12 year old son, who was a reluctant reader because of Dyslexia. We loved the Homelanders series so I chose this to try. I read it first and it had a dark edge to it; wasn't sure I would let him read this quite yet. However, Klavan wove this story together in a clever and intriguing way. I was surprised at the direction it took, which as a voracious reader, I don't find all that often. Well written, both my son and I loved it! I highly recommend this for any parent who is trying to get their kid to read.
All Andrew Klavan books I've read so far are teen action adventures. But there's always another genre going on, & he keeps you guessing as to what it is. Homelanders had aspects of sci-fi, and this one seems like it might be supernatural. Is it? You have to read it to find out.
