Dare You To

Dare You To - Katie McGarry As a rule I don't read YA. But Katie McGarry's Pushing the Limit series is the exception to my rule. I adored the first book in the series and was excited and anxious to read Dare You To.Dare You To is a great book. I wasn't sure if I was going to like Beth. She's prickly, bitchy at times and hard core. In Pushing the Limits, she wasn't very likable. Beth has to grow on you. She's been through a lot so it's understandable that she's emotionally closed off.Ryan is the all American boy. He's handsome, plays baseball and an all around decent guy. Even though Beth starts off as a dare for him, he is intrigued by her. He sees that there's more to her than the tough vibe that she gives off.Dare You To reminds me of the John Hughes' films of the 80s. The girl from the wrong side of the tracks and the guy from the right side. You can't help but root for them and love that the guy doesn't care that the girl isn't perfect. I loved Beth's story. Her life has been and continues to be rough. A part of her wants to be a normal high school girl but her life hasn't allowed her to be one. Beth is responsible for her mother who has bad taste in men and chooses the man over her daughter. I kept thinking Beth should cut her mother off but Beth knows that her mother will not survive without her.Ryan and Beth's story is so good. Ryan is a little too perfect. I don't think I ever met a guy that perfect and good when I was in high school. But that's what makes his character so likable. And you want the perfect guy to fall for the not-so-perfect girl.Dare You To is a fantastic story and I loved it from start to finish. I could not put it down. I highly recommend this series even if you're not a fan of YA. This is one series I will continue to read. I can't wait to read Isaiah's book.
