Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan Book Review

Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan

“Everyone thinks they know how everyone else is, but they’re usually wrong. People see what they want to see. It makes everything easier.”

Don’t Get Caught is a fun novel with the entire aspect of pulling pranks and I really liked how the pranks were planned/played out and how Max linked them to rules he followed from movies surrounding heists/scams. I liked the group that formed and how each of them had this different aspect they brought to the gang and their individual prank. Also the cat and mouse game with Max and his gang vs the Chaos Club was fun to read as they both tried to out each other and extract revenge. Plus I liked the ending with the video reveal.

What I didn’t like was how Max’s feelings towards Ellie, it was so instant and cringe worthy to the extent that his idolisation made the twist in the book so predictable. Another thing is with the way the book is written about a high school boy facing daily struggles the book wasn’t realistic and the school principle and town police force were are joke. Plus the whole pranks gone to the extreme and MC debating on his morals is such a cliché.
