Review: Dangerously Placed

User Review  - Loopy - Goodreads

This book reminded me of a modern day Nancy Drew. I know I'm not the target audience, I haven't been a young adult for a long time but some times that just doesn't matter - with this book it did. I think Dangerously Placed is more suited for late primary to early high school. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Nansi Kunze grew up surrounded by books in Australia and the UK. After studying languages and ancient history at university, she spent several years teaching overseas-trained doctors how to pronounce rude words and teenagers how to mummify each other, while cultivating a taste for manga and video games in her spare time. Unsurprisingly, her early attempts at writing serious adult fiction failed. Fortunately, she proved to be much better at writing slightly zany young adult fiction. Kill the Music is her third novel, following on the success of her previous two, Mishaps and Dangerously Placed. Nansi lives on a small farm overlooking the Victorian Alps with her husband and son, and is currently hard at work on her next YA book (assuming that 'hard at work' is synonymous with 'researching glamorous locations on the internet').
