Being a fan of Pretty Little Liars and the game Truth or Dare, this book appealed to me very much. I was very excited to read it, and had very high expectations. All of my expectations were surpassed. The plot was amazing and exciting, the characters felt so real, and the romance was breathtaking, especially that of Sydney and Guinness. If I had to choose a favorite character, it would definitely be Sydney! I felt like I could really connect to her and the way she felt about photography was so relateable. She's also the most unique character I have ever read about. What was interesting about the three main girls is at they're all so different. Tenley is the party girl, Caitlin is the sweet girl, and Sydney's they loner. The writing in the book is beautiful and breathtaking and the book doesn't have very many boring parts at all - in fact, I would say close to zero. The ending was tragic and completely unexpected and I was kept guessing about the darer through the entire book. This novel has everything I like in a good book, and I can't believe I didn't read it sooner. This is probably my favorite book of the year. Words can't describe how good it is. Now stop reading this and GO BUY THE BOOK!!!!

    The description for Truth or Dare immediately brought to mind Pr

    The description for Truth or Dare immediately brought to mind Pretty Little Liars, of which I used to be a big fan. I love books with a compelling mystery; the more dangerous that mystery is, the better!




    Truth or Dare didn't deliver that mystery I hoped for; bland characters and a slow-moving story made it difficult for the book to hold my attention.




    Reason to Read:




    1. Caitlin's character and struggles:




    Caitlin was easily the most interesting character to me. She was the easiest to relate to, and I thought Jacqueline Green did a great job bringing up some issues with respect to Caitlin's character that are uncommon in YA books, such as her struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety. I wish that had been covered a little bit  more in the book, because it was a great chance to really address a character trying to handle these difficulties. 




    One of the biggest problems for me is I truly didn't like any of the other characters. Tenley seemed far too pretentious, Sydney came across as entirely hypocritical, and I found no redeeming qualities in Guinness. I can appreciate that flawed characters are realistic and an important part of fiction; however, if I struggle to appreciate nearly any of the characters in a book, it makes it that much harder for me to root for them or invest myself in the story. 




    For a mystery book, I was anticipating more thrills and suspense. The girls seemed to be entirely focused on their own personal issues (which made the most sense for Caitlin's character) and fixated on mundane details in their lives when something bigger (and scarier) was going on. 




    Mostly I felt that the story has been done before, multiple times even. There wasn't much of anything original about Truth or Dare, and it ended up being largely forgettable. 




    ARC received from HBG Canada for review; no other compensation was received.
