Overview

Dare Truth or Promise / Edition 1

When Louie and Willa first meet, they don't know their lives will soon be changed forever. Self-assured Louie is gearing up for another successful year in high school, starring in a production of Twelfth Night and running the Comedy Club. Kicked out of her last school and still stinging from a past relationship, Willa wants only to get through her final year at school quietly so she can graduate and become a chef. More than anything, she wants to be left alone. But each girl unexpectedly finds that plans mean nothing when it comes to love. Louie discovers that everything she was sure of-acceptance, faith, and identity-are not what they had seemed. And Willa finds herself suddenly willing to take another chance.

When I started this book, I was still in the closet and dating a guy in my class. To me I was only half aware, and I could relate to Louie being hesitant and afraid of what her parents would do if they found out. There's a girl in my life, now my girlfriend, who is remarkably like Willa. I think there are many people who can relate to this book, despite whatever sexual orientation they might be, and the characters are really very likeable and open, a lot like many teenage girls struggling with their sexuality. This amazing book is definately a must read.

Dare Truth or Promise bordered on boring. There just wasn't enough to make this book stand out for me. In fact, it fell prey to some of the typical romance stories that are in abundance. One, the two main characters meet and practically fall in love with one another right off the bat. I, for one, enjoy a romance that blossoms from friendship. Instalove just doesn't cut it for me. Two, Willa and Louie don't have a whole lot of personality. In fact, none of the characters in the story have a whole lot of depth. I'm not asking for an ocean, but more than a puddle would have been nice. Three, there's a lack of any real communication throughout the book. Whether you look at Willa and Louie or even Louie and her family, everything is just glossed over. Communication would have solved, like, 99% of everything that happened in the book. Four, this follows the very typical pattern we see in lots of books with homosexual characters... two same sex people fall in love, person A's family finds out and disapproves, the relationship falls apart, something intense happens, and the relationship is suddenly on the mend and welcomed by everyone. Yawn. The only thing really different about this book is the main characters are two females rather than a female and a male. And, let's be honest, that's not very different anymore. You can read all of my reviews on my blog, KDH Reviews.

I'd first read this as a loan from the library. After getting my Nook, I decided to buy this eBook. I don't recall the spelling errors in this eBook as being present in the hard copy I'd checked out a while ago. It's as if the book was scanned and there were times that the text wasn't converted properly. That aside, the story trumps all display errors, and this remains one of my favorite queer young adult novels.

Dare truth or promise is a good novel for any teen who's going through discovering their sexuality. It's very relate-able to the way things are now these days. I definitely recommend it to any one who wants good, quick read but that still has some worth to it.
