Goodreads Description:

Ror lives to draw—to her, it’s like breathing; it’s how she understands life. When her father dies, she finds herself at a crossroads. Should she paint in the classic tradition, the way he taught her? Go to college, like her art teacher wants? Or should she listen to Trey, the seductive street artist who leads the crew Noise Ink? She is a brilliant artist—but will she use her talent, or waste it?
Into the Dangerous World breaks new ground in fiction—and its indelible visual images will live inside your head.

Fallon's Review
Thank you to Penguin for sending me a copy of Into The Dangerous World for review. This in no way affects my opinion in my review.

This is a story of Ror who discovers herself along the way and learns to explore and grow into the artist she wants to be. The art in this had such range and depth. I enjoyed the art so much it took a bit to pic my favorite but I picked the one below because I think it is such an example of breaking down boundaries and discovering the chaos that one may be told to hold back from.


I loved the way the ART was incorporated throughout but at time the writing did read a little young but had a lot of profanity which did not mesh. I however am so happy to see a book that incorporates art in a way that can inspire a story and inspire the reader as well.
