REVIEW for Truth or Dare

Thank you to Hachette Canada for sending me this book.

TITLE:               Truth or Dare

AUTHOR:         Jacqueline Green

GENRE:            YA


Truth or Dare is the perfect book for me - edgy, entertaining and daring.

There is a dark side to this storyline - starting with the drowning of girls in the town of Echo Bay and ending with Caitlin, Tenley and Sydney who suddenly find themselves in a game of Truth or Dare that quickly gets out of control.

What I liked about this book is basically two things - 1)  the buildup of the mystery aspect of this storyline is cool.  There is an edge to the book that you pick up on right from the beginning and its a bit creepy.  2)  there is also a very obvious backstory message here of what life can be as a young adult, especially if you find yourself in a situation(s) that gets out of control.  Fitting in and being part of the "gang" is also explored here - without ever being overbearing or underhanded.

As for the main story - its engrossing and I found myself hooked.

This sounds like a book I'd like too. I enjoy YA as long as it's realistic.
