Teen Review by Hannah... The Dangerous Days of Daniel X by James Patterson

I've recently read The Dangerous days of Daniel X by James Patterson and co-author Michael Ledwidge, and I really enjoyed it! It has all the action and thrill of The Maximum Ride series, also by James Patterson.

Daniel X looks like a normal teenager, but actually he's from another planet. Some people on his planet have special abilities such as telekinesis. But Daniel is exceptional, even for his people. He can read people's minds, control people's minds, transform into things from a tiny tick to a woolly mammoth, can make real copies of people appear and vanish at will, and has exceptional speed, intelligence, and strength.

What was he doing on Earth, you say? When he was 3 his parents were on a mission to capture and\or kill the top 20. The top most dangerous aliens, that is. When he was three, his parents were ultimately murdered by #1 on their list: The Prayer. Daniel, being the smart 3 year old that he was, managed to escape, get the list, and follow his parents footsteps in the business of dealing with dangerous aliens.

When he decides to take a shortcut from #16 to #6, his copies of friends and family question the he can do it. Is he ready for it? He finds himself being haunted in his dreams by The Prayer and #6, and he, strangely, finds the urge to go to real school, as #6 told him to do in his dream. Is it all a trap? Are the aliens behind this? Then,at school, Daniel meets the girl of his dreams and is determined to protect her from #6. Will he triumph
over #6? You'll just have to read it to find out.
