Blog Tour: INTO THE DANGEROUS WORLD by Julie Chibbaro #intothedangerousworld

About The Book:

Into The Dangerous World by: Julie Chibbaro
Artwork By: JM Superville Sovak 
Release Date: August 18, 2015
Publisher: Viking/Penguin 
Pages: 352
 Ror lives to draw—to her, it’s like breathing; it’s how she understands life. Raised on a Staten Island commune, she’s never attended a day of school, and knows little of the outside world. When her paranoid father burns down the commune with himself inside, Ror, her mother, and sister end up in a homeless residence in Manhattan. There, she runs into trouble—and love—with Trey, the leader of Noise Ink, a graffiti crew.  

On the city’s streets, and in its museums and galleries, Ror finds herself pulled in different directions. Her father wanted her to make classic art. Noise Ink insists she stay within their lines. Her art teacher urges her to go to college. But what does she want? Ror’s soul-searching—expressed in remarkable drawings and sharp-edged prose, set in the gritty Manhattan of 1984—is cinematic in its scope, and its seamless blend of text and art makes Into the Dangerous World a groundbreaking event in young adult fiction.

Into the Dangerous World is a gritty, gripping, novel, written by the talented Julie Chibbaro. Told in the hard-knock setting of 1984 Manhattan, readers are introduced to Aurora, more commonly known as "Ror". She has been raised in a commune and suddenly a tragedy has brought her to the city and has dropped her right into public school. Still reeling from the accident, she is astounded by the city. The artist in her is entranced by the graffiti and art museums, but when she meets Trey, the leader of a graffiti crew, she begins to wonder if she's found her escape or need to escape.

Julie Chibbaro nails the gritty life of 1980s poverty-level New York and the reader is able to envision each scene in the book. Her writing is detailed, clear, and raw, leaving room for Ror to look at herself and grow throughout the novel.

The art, courtesy of Julie's husband, Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, adds to the story tremendously. The art is edgy and resonates with readers, regardless of how it is interpreted. It really added depth to this story and pulled it together into a more cohesive piece.
 I would highly recommend this book to lovers of the arts, good stories, and those wanting to get lost in a gritty, realistic fiction novel. This story has something for everyone and in my opinion, will appeal to adults and young adults, alike.
