Katie McGarry Week: Teen Review of 'Dare You To'

This week we're dedicating our posts to author Katie McGarry! This Friday we'll have an interview with her and we're too excited to talk about anything else! Marika, another fabulous member of our high school book club is here to tell us about her favorite Katie McGarry book!

Dare You To by Katie McGarry

A game of dares, a competition for getting the most girls’ numbers, and a rather memorable Taco Bell scene. I’ll admit, when Dare You To, by Katie McGarry, was recommended to me, I was a bit hesitant because of the cover, but wow did that change. By the time I was halfway through the book I was laughing and crying and knew it had a special place in my heart. Ryan’s the perfect guy; everyone loves him, he’s the star of the baseball team with the perfect life and an athletic scholarship in his back pocket. Beth grew up on the wrong side of town, taking care of her mom and living with her aunt. What happens when she’s plucked from her life and thrown into Ryan’s? 

McGarry alternates perspectives to weave a beautiful story of love and heartbreak, of expectations and family and reality.  Dare You To is a wonderful novel that perfectly showcases Katie McGarry’s exceptional skill and messes with your heart in all the right places.
