Summary

Get a FREE 50 page sneak peek at award-winning, bestselling author Shannon Hale's new teen science fiction novel, which New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner James Dashner calls, "One of the best books I've ever read. Ever." 
 
How far would you go to save the ones you love? And how far would you go to save everyone else? 
 
Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit and see something new. She never intended to fall in love with a boy at space camp. And she certainly never intended to stumble into a frightening plot that just might destroy everything and everyone she cares about. But now there's no going back -  Maisie's the only thing standing between danger and annihilation. She must become the hero the world needs, before she loses her heart . . . and her life. 
 
Equal parts romance and action-adventure, this explosive story is sure to leave both longtime Shannon fans and avid sci-fi readers completely breathless. 
 
"Master storyteller Hale takes readers to dizzying new heights. Layered with gritty action and heartfelt characters, Dangerous is a can't miss adventure." --Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy.  
 
"Fast paced and action packed, bubbling over with ideas and full of heart, Dangerous is a dangerously addictive read." --Scott Westerfeld, New York Times bestselling author of the Leviathan and Uglies series

    The Third Chimpanzee was first published in 1991 and has been in print ever since. This new, illustrated edition is aimed at a young readership. In it, Jared Diamond explores what makes us human and poses fascinating questions including:  If we share more than 98% of our DNA with chimpanzees, how is it that we can write, read, talk, build telescopes and bombs, while we put our speechless and bomb-less close relatives in cages and zoos? What can woodpeckers teach us about spacecraft? Is genocide a human invention? Why does extinction matter? Why are we destroying the natural resources on which we depend for survival? What hope is there for future generations? The Third Chimpanzee for Young Readers is not only a mind-boggling survey of how we came to be who we are, but a plea to the next generation to "make better decisions than their parents and get us out of the mess we're in."

    How can a fairy'sblessing be such a curse? 
    At her birth, Ella of Frell was the unfortunate recipient of a foolish fairy's gift -- the "gift' of obedience. Ella must obey any order given to her, whether it's hopping on one foot for a day and a half, or chopping off her own head! But strong-willed Ella does not tamely accept her fate. Against a bold backdrop of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella goes on a quest to break the curse -- once and for all.  
    In this incredible debut novel comes the richly entertaining story of Ella of Frell, who at birth was given the gift of obedience by a fairy.  Ella soon realizes that this gift is little better than a curse, for how can she truly be herself if at anytime anyone can order her to hop on one foot, or cut off her hand, or betray her kingdom'and she'll have to obey?  Against a bold tapestry of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella's quest to break the curse once and for all and discover who she really is is as sharply funny as Catherine, Called Birdy and as richly poignant as Beauty, and has all the marks of a classic in the making.
