Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2)

Ryan lowers
his lips to my ear. "Dance with me, Beth."
"No." I whisper the reply. I
hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again....
"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....
 
Kindle Edition, 480 pages
Expected publication: May 28th 2013 by Harlequin Teen

My Review

Grab a box of tissues before you start Dare You To. It is one of the best books I have read this year, but let me tell you, I bawled like a baby in some parts. You feel what Beth and Ryan are going through. This book couldn't have been put together any better than it is. The story is told through the eyes of both Ryan and Beth.

They each come from different homes, with their own problems. They first meet through a dare between Ryan and his friends. What starts as a dare turns into so much more.

Once the ball starts rolling each has decisions to make that will greatly effect their lives. Ryan is dealing with hiding a family secret, pretending in public that his family isn't breaking up, and what to do with his future.
Beth has to decide to help her mother. If she's left along too long her boyfriend Trent may give her a beating that she won't be able to recover from. She also knows that if it's not her mother he kills it may be her. Given a chance for a new beginning in a new town, she now has to decide what path to take.
