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…

Yeah, not so much. Max and four fellow students-who also received invites-are standing on the newly defaced water tower when campus security “catches” them. Definitely a setup. And this time, Max has had enough. It’s time for Rule #7: Always get payback.

Let the prank war begin.

I thought I wouldn’t like this story because as you can see on my Goodreads reading progress, I started reading this on February 11 and I finished this on February 25 but I loved this book!

This story is fucking intense, bad-ass characters, fun, and crazy adventure. It’s the story about the 5 people who was invited by the Chaos Club that one night and then they were busted by the police. It’s like I’m watching the movie and that was good. Then, they talked to find out who is the Chaos Club and how many are they. Let the search on. So who’s that 5 characters? First, Max Cobb, he’s like a boring person and to think that his classmate calling him Just-Max cos he ain’t cool, let’s just say he’s sort of nerd. Second, Ellie Wick, her parents are working in the Church and she’s good at making stories that you will fall for it and sometimes you don’t know if it’s a truth or lies. Kat Malone, so she made a mistake for sending a nude picture and it was leaked. So people around the school making fun of her. Dave Wheeler, a techie and funny guy, you can’t complete a story about highschool stories without a person who is good in computer. And last but not the least, Tim Adleta who is a part of the lacrosse team and he’s a hot guy. Who doesn’t want to include him in the team? And combining them will make a best team. They’re group name is Water Tower Five.

Christine what’s so good about in this book?

  1. It’s fucking relatable!! Especially the 5 of them, different personalities and skills and it’s the best team ever!! There’s no way you can’t relate on this because obviously it really happens in real life.
  2. It’s funny and you can’t avoid not to laugh while reading because it’s really good. Their pranks oh my god I’m gonna die laughing at them and how worse it is.
  3. You will love all the characters here and there’s no way that you don’t love and relate to the characters here. Because THAT’S A LIE!!
  4. It’s really good that you should and need to read this one. Especially when you’re not in a high school or a student, it feels nostalgic and it feels good to reminisce the memories you did with your friends. The pranks, etc.

And one thing I realized on reading this. I know it feels weird because I’m here reviewing the book and there’s a REALIZATION 101, I’m not here to lecturing. *insert sarcasm here*.

You should embrace your quirks and be yourself. It’s good to really saw your skills and talents.

So that’s it. I do hope that Kurt Dinan will do a sequel to this book because I really feel like it should have a second part.
