Dare You To - Katie McGarry
4.5 So that was fabulous!!
It wasn't expertly woven like a Dessen novel, it didn't have sophisticated/whimsical language, and the anguish and pain certainly mean it was not light-hearted. But it was original and it was ok solid. And I liked the MCs! Which is definitely important. I was rooting for Ryan and Beth all the way. Their romance made sense.

ETA: All that said, my friends list had very diverse reactions to this book, even rating it 1 star. So read with caution!
