Book Review: Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Dare You To
by Katie McGarry
Harlequin Teen
480 pg.
May 2013
"I dare you…"
If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does….
Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock—with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.
But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams—and his life—for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all….

Ok, this was definitely a page turning, Once I started it I couldn't stop, I barely did anything else, I read it in just one day, I'm used to paranormal and fantasy, so reading someting different was refreshing.

This book is amazing, the love story ,yes it is so great, but beyond it, Beth story, all her tragedy, the world she lives in, it is so well written, disturbing but at the same time, you can totally understand her and the way she acts.

There is so much to like about Ryan, he is cute, handsome. athletic, smart, a gentleman and also his life is not a piece of cake.

It is a really good book, it is enterteining, different, it portraits really well real life.

But over all in Dare You To, we can see that there is no need of paranormal, to read about real disturbing monsters, because the monsters are within ourselfes, and McGarry makes such an amazing job, by telling us about monsters in such a dramatic way but still she does it so soft that you don't want to cry out all the way.

With this book I laughed, I cried and I hoped.
