Summary

When a simple round of truth or dare spins out of control, three girls find it’s no longer a party game. It’s do or die.

It all started on a whim: the game was a way for Tenley Reed to reclaim her popularity, a chance for perfect Caitlin “Angel” Thomas to prove she’s more than her Harvard application. Loner Sydney Morgan wasn’t even there; she was hiding behind her camera like usual. But when all three start receiving mysterious dares long after the party has ended, they’re forced to play along—or risk exposing their darkest secrets.

How far will Tenley, Caitlin and Sydney go to keep the truth from surfacing? And who’s behind this twisted game?

Set against the backdrop of Echo Bay, an isolated beach town haunted by misfortune, Truth or Dare is a highly charged debut that will keep readers in suspense from beginning to end.

Personal Experiences

I have always dreaded the game of Truth or Dare.  It never ended well for me.  And the same is true for the girls in this book.  But we’ll get to that in a moment.

I like mysteries and thrillers and revenge stories. Truth or Dare is an intricately woven story, full of secrets and deceptions, and it definitely kept me guessing.  No dirty laundry remained un-aired.  No skeleton remained in its closet.  And no stone was left unturned as the girls tried to discover who was behind the dares.  I’m usually really good at guessing who the culprit is early on and enjoy watching as the characters search for clues, but this time around, I was just as stumped as them until something happened and I just knew.  The writing was clear and concise and the book read more mature than other series I have read, and that just aided in keeping me in the dark for so long.

I generally like to know more than the characters do.  So, when a character knows something that I don’t and then takes it to the grave, it leaves me feeling a bit agitated.  Especially when said character was on the verge of revealing this information, only to meet their untimely death.  I call foul.  What kind of ploy is this and why must you make me suffer so?

The suspense wasn’t the only thing I liked about the story.  The setting was the secluded town of Echo Bay, during it’s Fall Festival.  A festival which had previously been cancelled due to the mysterious deaths of three girls, dubbed the Lost Girls.  If that doesn’t set the mood for an eerie story, I don’t know what would.  The deaths weren’t technically linked to the festival, but I usually attempt to avoid activities that lead to mentions of a curse and the like.  But, hey, who am I to judge?  

I think I would have rather this book been a stand-alone.  The story was just dark and intense enough to keep me reading, but that ending kind of rubbed me the wrong way.  I mean, you get your answers and you move on.  Though the ending wasn’t what I would call a cliffhanger, it did leave a lot more questions.  Maybe I don’t like mysteries as much as I thought?  Because the questions and the not-knowing are seriously bothering me right now.  I guess that’s the sign of a well-written mystery?  Like I said, I liked the writing, and I’d like to read more from this author.  Just maybe not a mystery because she’s infuriatingly good at it.
