Truth or Dare Review

PUB DATE: August 2009

Thank you to Nicole O’Dell and Barbour Books for sending me this book to read and review.

Lindsay Martin is faced with a tough choice: Does she give in to peer pressure and make her friends happy or does she do what she knows is right—even if it means losing her friends forever? Tween readers make the choice in this interactive story and see how the consequences change Lindsay’s life. Includes a contract and prayer to remind the reader of the importance of making godly decisions.

I think that this is a great concept for the book. Its actually two books in one. When you got to the section in the book you could actually choose would Lindsay cave to peer pressure and if she did you got to see what would happen. If you think she won’t you got to see what would happen.

I really enjoyed reading the book and it was a quick and easy read. As I was reading the book I realized that growing up I was never really forced into peer pressure. I think that mainly had to do with the group of people I hung around with. I mean of course there was drugs, alcohol and many other things around me but we chose not to be involved in that. Plus I grew up in a household where alcohol was around and I saw it and realized I didn’t want to be like that.

Truth or Dare is about four girls who are the best of friends: Lindsay, Macy, Sam and Kelly. Of all the girls I could relate the most with Macy. She is the soft spoken one who hates to offend anyone and feelings get easily hurt. That is just like me. (Yea I know hard to believe eh?)

With the girls being in 8th grade they have to celebrate so Sam suggests a sleep over and has a surprise for the girls. So when the girls show up and are wondering about the surprise she tells them they are going to play Truth or Dare.

We all know that playing Truth or Dare will lead to trouble. At first it starts out harmless but then it escalates to some serious illegal stuff. What will happen to the girls? What would you do?

This is a great book for young girls to read and I highly recommend it.
