Goodreads Synopsis:

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 didn’t knew what to expect from this book when I read its blurb but as soon as I read it was like Ocean’s 11 meets The Breakfast Club I knew I wanted to read this book because I love The Breakfast Club. This book was so fast-pacing and so hilarious that it would be impossible not to love it. Let me just tell you something, as soon as I started reading this I start laughing because Max was such a funny character. The book itself was so funny but it helped that it was told from Max’s POV. I really enjoyed the story and how it was about prank wars. I also loved to see how the initial prank (when Max and out students were pranked) united the main characters and how they helped each other not only in their pranks but also to be better people.

While this book surprised in many ways I was still able to kind of predict how the book would end and who was behind the initial prank. I don’t know if this book will have a sequel or not but I hope it not only because I want to keep reading about these characters but also because that ending deserves a continuation and I need to know what happens next.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and it was a really fun read. Kurt Dinan did a great job writing this book and I hope to read more of his books. If you’re in need of a funny read you should definitely read this one.


4 stars
