Title: Dare You To
Author: Katie McGarry
Date Read: 18th September, 2013
No. in Series: #2
I actually read this book before I read Pushing the Limits because I thought that Dare you To was a stand alone and you can actually read it as that, if you like. I really don’t know which book I like more out of this series because they are all so good.
This book is about the relationship between Beth and Ryan. You might remember Beth as the friend of Noah and lives with him and Isaiah. Beth is the same girl we knew before except now she has been forced to move away from her friends and live with her Dad. Ryan is the school’s best baseball player and is dared to ask out Beth, who wants nothing to do with a jock.
Still, I love Beth. I think that she is a great character and she is so misunderstood. I don’t like the way she deals with things and people but eventually she grows out of that and I loved that. I love all of her character development and the subtle changes you see in her actions.
I like Ryan. I think that he was your perfect average nice boyfriend but he definitely isn’t up there with Noah and Isaiah because well, I love me a bad boy. Don’t get me wrong I really liked Ryan and I think that he was the perfect person for Beth but just not for my liking. He was just so cute at times that I wanted to squeal..
Felt really bad for Isaiah like the entire book, I felt like I was cheating on him for liking Ryan.
I think that Katie McGarry really captures the essence of teenage love and angst and how everything seems to be put into place. I really think that she is a talented writer so it isn’t really a surprise that I like all of her books.
This book is really about the two main characters and the relationship between them and all the people surrounding them. It’s about them trying to deal with that they are from opposite worlds but also learning that they really aren’t that different. And I think that is what I really like about this series. That Katie McGarry puts these two teenagers into a relationship which no-one not even them would ever picture themselves in. And thats’s what makes it interesting.
Just quickly: I don’t actually own this cover. I own the cover for the Australian version, the Sepia type one because I think that is more beautiful then these covers.
