Books like this always make me feel like nothing cool ever happened in my high school.
10:00 tonight at the water tower. Tell no one. -Chaos Club
When Max receives a mysterious invite from the untraceable, epic prank-pulling Chaos Club, he has to ask: why him? After all, he’s Mr. 2.5 GPA, Mr. No Social Life. He’s Just Max. And his favorite heist movies have taught him this situation calls for Rule #4: Be suspicious. But it’s also his one shot to leave Just Max in the dust…
This was a riot – laugh out loud and full of fun. They got it right when they said that this was The Breakfast Club meets Ocean’s Eleven because it includes all your favourite high school tropes with an epic prank war that makes you want to rewatch all those great heist movies.
When Max and 4 of his classmates are setup by the Chaos Club on top of the water tower, the 5 get together to bring down the Chaos Club by creating an epic revenge plot.
The writing in this is brilliant and I really liked that you only got to know enough about each character to move the story along and justify their actions. The Water Tower 5 were funny and smart representations of different high school archetypes. There were some cool twists throughout the book that kept you entertained right until the end.
