Title: Dangerously placed, Nansi Kunze. Kiyoko and I often hung out at Sky’s place after school and on the weekends. It’s right by the beach, it’s an easy walk from Flinders High, and best of all, it has the advantage of Sky’s mum and her ‘none of my business’ attitude to whatever we’re up to. If we went to my place, my parents would be knocking on my door every two minutes to check if the three of us were doing our homework.

For all I knew, my work experience mentor was already watching me via security camera.

For all I knew, my work experience mentor was already watching me via security camera wanted to do was give my mentor the impression that I was clumsy and foul-mouthed. Disentangling the dense, padded material of the suit from my left foot, I stood up, put my other foot in and slowly pulled on one of the gloves. It was made of a silky, light-grey fabric that was difficult to grip with my slippery fingers. I hadn’t even logged in to the office yet, and I was already.

Alex Thaler can't wait to start her dream work experience placement at Virk, where staff from all over the world mingle in an astonishing virtual office. But when an employee is found murdered, the dream becomes a nightmare - because Alex is the prime suspect.

Dangerously Placed book. Aussie author Nansi Kunze has created a thrilling virtual world within one thriller of a book. I don't know what it is about virtual reality that gets my motor running. The world of gaming calls to me like a bird feeder calls to a squirrel.

by Nansi Kunze (Author). The protagonist, Alex Thaler (like Kunze's other protagonist in her previous novel Mishaps,) is a great mixture of vulnerability, self-doubt and humility, contrasted with dry sarcasm and self-confidence. Kunze may be a grown adult with her teen years well behind her, but she writes modern teens very, very well. I do however feel that this book definitely has a place in the YA sci-fi genre! Dangerously Placed finished as a strong sci-fi adventure!

Unsurprisingly, her early attempts at writing serious adult fiction failed. Fortunately, she proved to be much better at writing slightly zany young adult fiction.

It was definitely not boring, but not as exciting as I was expecting. What this book does have is an interesting concept and execution of concept, which is why I've given it four stars.

Nansi Kunze is now my number one writer to watch. In Dangerously Placed, she demonstrates her brilliant way with words and a remarkable talent for an original story.

Kunze's style is snappy, her dialogue smart and her characters fun to read. The protagonist, Alex Thaler (like Kunze's other protagonist in her previous novel Mishaps,) is a great mixture of vulnerability, self-doubt and humility, contrasted with dry sarcasm and self-confidence. Kunze may be a grown adult with her teen years well behind her, but she writes modern teens very, very well.

Her settings are detailed and believable - even with the heavy urban sci-fi element. The plot is complex but not so much that you need a degree to follow it - perfect for the YA market Kunze's writing for, but also a joy for any adult who picks it up.

I'm really looking forward to more from Nansi Kunze. Five stars.

Alex Thaler is your average teen. Ok, maybe a bit above average, for she was placed in one of the most prestigious work placements a teen could get: Simulcorp. Alex will spend her week using the most advanced technology and working in a completely virtual environment. However with great technology comes great trouble. In her excitement to present her project idea, Alex stumbles across the body of her boss laying dead in the virtual environment and she's the main suspect. The story then follows Alex and her friends as she tries to solve the murder, prove her innocence, and figure out just who that guy that's following her really is.

Dangerously Placed takes you on an adventure through an environment we all hope to work in one day: a virtual one. Basically anything you imagine can happen including chairs made of water and floors carpeted with grass, even a dragon as a pet. If you can program it, you can have it. In order to hop into your virtual office, you first have to hop into a Virk suit. This full body suit fits to the form of your body allowing for a perfect replication of yourself inside the office. There are also sensors in the suit that stimulate the feeling of touch, smell, sight, etc. while in the virtual environment so that you can truly feel the entire experience. A truly innovative idea that I for one want to try out right away! Can we um..get on that technology please?

Besides being amazingly creative with technology, Kunz is able to take you on a who dun it adventure as Alex tries to piece together all the facts surrounding the murder of her boss. False identities, undercover reporters, hot guys, and water parks are just a few of the things you'll encounter as you read through the story. Kunz also creates some interesting characters as Alex's friends range from the hippie type to the doctor type and everything in between. It is definitely a very eclectic and colorful cast of characters.

So, with all the praise, why only three stars? I felt the story was a little too guided leaving little to the imagination and taking out some of the fun guess work of a true mystery. Also, while I found the book fun to read, it didn't have that wow factor for me. Despite these facts, I'd still recommend the book to anyone that loves virtual reality and a good murder mystery.

Dangerously Placed was quite a thrill ride. I was blown away by how developed and realistic Nansi's virtual reality technologies were! They were extremely well thought out. So much that I could definitely see us using similar technologies in the future. I also enjoyed how the book was physically broken up: Each chapter takes place over one day. This made it easy to keep track of how time progressed. Sometimes, for me, it is easy to lose track of how much time has passed in novels. Unfortunately, I did find Dangerously Placed lacking in character development initially...

Though this was an interesting, developed story, it did not grab me like the many sci-fi books I have read before. Perhaps the timing was off, but I just wasn't "feeling it." I do however feel that this book definitely has a place in the YA sci-fi genre!

Dangerously Placed finished as a strong sci-fi adventure! At 274 pages, this qualifies as a quick read. I definitely recommend this to fans of the sci-fi and adventure genres. I'm very curious to see what Nansi has in store for us next!
