10:00 tonight at the water tower. Tell no one. -Chaos ClubWhen 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....

Don't Get Caught Reviews
Every so often a book comes along, that as soon as you read the first few paragraphs- it gives you tingles in your belly....because it takes you back to a time in your youth when anything seemed possible. The world was new and exciting-when things went wrong it was okay...because with youth on your side, you could face whatever it threw at you as long as you had friends that were all going through the some of the same things. It may take a while to find those soulmates...but once you did, ever ...more
I must admit, there was a part of me that was absolutely predisposed to like this book. Two of my all-time favorite movies are "Goonies" and "The Breakfast Club." I'm such a sucker for stories about ragtag groups of friends that come together in common purpose--bonus points if that common purpose is to get into trouble.
I'm overjoyed to report that this rollicking, hilarious, irreverent, bighearted, and charming book lives up to every bit of its wonderful premise.
I loved every leap-from-the-page, ...more
You can buy this now!
No, like, for reals. It's available today, on April Fools Day, because perfect timing is perfect.
After reading karen's review of this book, I commented to her, This sounds like what I'd hoped for from The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life but didn't get so now I'll have to read this when it comes out in two million years and then all will be right with the world. and she was all, "You know, I thought of you while I read this because I think you'd like it and I ...more
This was really fun, and I know I really liked it because my ARC had a ton of printing errors (like, full-on missing pages) and not only did I plow through anyway even though I rarely have compunction about DNFing, but my first thought afterward was "I'm gonna buy a copy now so I can see what I missed."
If you love Breakfast Club-esque books, absolutely add this one to your list. The characters are great, the pranks are original, and the voice is spot-on.
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK. I love it so much I have to write it in all-caps again: I LOVE THIS BOOK. It's funny and sweet and entertaining and SO MUCH FUN. Max is absolutely charming and hilarious as a narrator, and all the trouble he and his group of fellow outcast friends get into--and maybe don't always get out of--had me laughing from the first few pages all the way through the end. There are pranks and rivalries and good ideas and TERRIBLE ideas and friendships made and friendships ...more

VIDEO REVIEW: https://youtu.be/ze-uuVpW8i0
Maxwell Cobb has always been known as "Just Max", boring and nothing special. So, when Max receives a note in his locker from The Chaos Club to meet them at the water tower he obviously accepts the offer. When he arrives, he is greeted by 4 other students, Kate Malone, Dave Wheeler, Tim Aldeta and Ellie Wick, who have also received invites. Thinking they are being offered positions into ...more

10:00 tonight at the water tower. Tell no one. -Chaos Club
Books like this always make me feel like nothing cool ever happened in my high school.
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 hi ...more
I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Most of the time, when a book is touted as ____ meets ____, I am disappointed at the result. Usually the story only holds the vaguest of resemblances to the well-known movies or books it's being compared to. In this case, however, the tagline of "Ocean's Eleven meets The Breakfast Club" is dead-on. Dinan's high school caper novel delivers all the intricate fun of Danny Ocean's schemes and all the self-revelatory teen ...more
