The one secret she cares about keeping—her identity—is about to be exposed. Unless Lauren “Panda” Daniels—an anonymous photoblogger who specializes in busting classmates and teachers in compromising positions—plays along with her blackmailer’s little game of Dare or . . . Dare.

But when the game turns deadly, Panda doesn’t know what to do. And she may need to step out of the shadows to save herself . . . and everyone else on the Admirer’s hit list.

I’ve always been interested in the YA genre that has hacking and computer thriller types of things in it so I was pretty excited to read Endangered. I didn’t read any reviews before starting this book so I kinda went in blind. I’m not really disappointed per se but I was really hoping for more.

This book started off really quickly and never slowed down. However, it started so quickly that I was never able
comprehend what was happening. And nothing was really fully explained.

I liked the idea of the main character but she didn’t really seem fully developed as a character. Also, as the book went on and I learned more about her, she really seem so likable or nice. She seemed bitter and mean. I liked the idea that she would expose teachers for doing bad things but I didn’t like how she would be vengeful with fellow students, no matter how much they “deserved it”.

Overall, this book was just okay for me. I couldn’t really get into it and by the end of the book, I thought there was so much unnecessary drama and the overall plot seemed a little pointless. This book is definitely just for entertainment value and not for a critical reader like myself.
