Title: Dare You To
Author: Katie McGarry
Teen Reviewer: Emily St. Louis
Rating: 4/5 stars
Personally, as a teen reader; I really enjoyed this book. I’m not one to sit down and read a book all the time, but this one had me hooked.
The two main characters Beth and Ryan are polar opposites. Beth is a punk girl who has a troubled family life at home with her mother and her mother’s terrible boyfriend. Ryan is a baseball star whose parents push him all the time at the sport, but don’t realize he has a gift for writing.
While Beth is out, she gets into some trouble with the boyfriend and had to go to jail. During that time, her uncle took her in and that’s when she met Ryan (After running into him once by accident). Throughout the story, the two fight and fight, until she finally starts to trust, and he starts to like her.
In my opinion, any reader who wants a good read should read this book. It’s well written, and has a great time relating to people in all situations.
