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!!!!

    I was hoping that Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green was going to

    I was hoping that Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green was going to be a read similar to a movie that I loved back in the day, I Know What You Did Last Summer.  A suspense, thriller type read that would keep on the edge of my seat.

    What started off as hopeful…petered out for me.  It became a really repetitive plotline, with an ending that was easily predictable.  And a cliffhanger type ending that should’ve had me excited for book two, kind of had me rolling my eyes thinking…here we go again…

    The story revolves around 3 girls in the town of Echo Bay, Tenley, Caitlin, and Sydney.

    Tenley has just returned to Echo Bay after having moved away years ago.   After her mother has married one of the richest men in the area, Tenley returns with a goal of being one of the most popular girls again with a reputation of throwing killer parties which are known to be legendary due to their “intense” games of truth or dare.  But upon her return, it seems that someone else has decided to take the game to a whole new level with Tenley as one of the targets… and they will stop at nothing to get Tenley to continue to play their heartless game…including revealing secrets that Tenley wants to keep hidden.

    Sydney has always been on the outside looking in.  With a past that has suddenly come back to haunt her which mimicks that games that she loathed in her younger days, Truth or Dare, Sydney finds solace behind the lens of her camera.  But when things start to spiral out of control, Sydney’s urge to go back to the things she used to do to release her anger is getting stronger and stronger every day.  And when the dares that she is given start to unravel dark secrets of those closest to her, Sydney’s not sure if her camera is enough to tame the beast sleeping inside of her.

    Caitlin is still recovering from her past.  A past where she was kidnapped and drugged.  Still struggling to remember the events of that awful time in her life where her memories have been repressed, a stalker’s rendition of Truth or Dare is getting to be too much for her to handle.  Not only does she need to worry about having someone who hides behind typed messages who is trying to destroy her reputation, the memories that she had repressed all those years ago are slowly coming back to the surface.

    Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green started off promising.  The author provided an excellent background to the three main characters, with information being given throughout the book.  The characters all had their own individual personalities which will give readers an opportunity to connect with one.  But there were some things in the book that kind of ewwwed me out.  For example, a slightly unhealthy obsession between stepbrother and stepsister.

    With the introduction of the first dare, I was ready to get into and totally absorbed into the book.  But, I personally, thought that there were way too many.  Like, way too many.  For me, it came to the point where there wasn’t any shock and awe for me.  I felt like I didn’t have time to absorb the first few dares that came, but instead dares were coming at me left and right.

    As I said earlier, the ending was easily predictable, for me.  There were a lot of things that were left unresolved, although I’m sure they were left that way in preparation for book 2.  But there’s one thing that I wish I would have found out…and it involves Caitlin’s past.

    I recommend this read to fans of whodunit type reads and to movies/books similar to that of I Know What You Did Last Summer.
