Dare You product reviews

Ruby, Sas and Khaden have been best friends forever. But they aren't kids anymore. Life has become complicated and it is testing the boundaries of their friendship. Despite the warning signs, their childish games spiral out of control, threatening to unravel the world as they know it.

And this time, somebody will lose.

The story of three Aussie teenagers who are all dealing with huge problems at home and keeping them secret from the others... leading ultimately to disaster. Sue Lawson has certainly captured the emotionality and irrationality of the mid teens and her characters, while not lovable, are fascinating and I certainly found myself needing to know what happened. From the very beginning, however, I had an awful sense of foreboding - this was not going to end well.
Sure enough, there are consequences to all this 'daring' and secret-keeping, and while there are important lessons to be learned and the subject matter is worthy of further thought, I was incredibly disturbed by this book and found myself thinking about it repeatedly over the following days.
It's the abrupt ending, more than anything else - it leaves you wondering what the point of it all was. Sure, life throws you curve balls like that, but I like to escape such things by reading books...
Still, Dare You is well written and may be a good morality tale for teens about the dangers of going off the rails. Just not for the faint of heart.
