The game? Truth or Dare. The rules? They're aren't any.
In Echo Bay, Massachusetts, three teenage girls have started
to receive mysterious dares, typed out on small squares of paper. Loner Sydney
Morgan wants to believe the notes are cryptic flirtations from the guy who
understands her best. Caitlin "Angel" Thomas is secretly worried that the dares
are connected to a nightmare from her past. And beautiful Tenley Reed, back in
town after years in the Nevada sticks, is furious that someone has the audacity
to threaten her homecoming-and her most closely guarded secrets.
When the stakes are raised, Caitlin and Tenley accuse Sydney
of the threats, hoping she'll admit to meddling in their lives. But Sydney is
in the dark, too, and the three girls realize that there's someone else out
there...watching and waiting. Paranoia builds as each little slip of paper taunts
Caitlin, Tenley and Sydney with dares that threaten not just their reputations
but also their lives.
Set against the backdrop of an isolated and affluent seaside
town populated with the young and the reckless, Truth or Dare stacks
mystery upon mystery and twist upon turn. Jacqueline Green's high-charged and suspenseful
debut, the first of a trilogy, will leave readers breathless and dying
"Green offers an edge-of-your-seat thriller. The characters are all well drawn and believably flawed...Creepy and dark to the core, this is a great offering for fans of Lois Duncan and Christopher Pike."
School Library Journal
