Dare You To by Katie McGarry

What if you had the opportunity to escape your past?  Could you let it go, or would you let it destroy your future?  

Characters: Beth, a tough girl, Ryan, a jock

Setting:  urban shifting to suburban, present day

Atmosphere:  dark with a shaft of light

Rating:  ✰✰✰✰✰

Song:  Carry On by Fun. I think most of the lyrics to this song represent more the feeling of this book than the video does.

Symbol:  pink ribbon, paper

POV:  alternating 1st person between Beth and Ryan

Lesson: Learn to trust your heart, and make your own decisions.

Note:  I loved this one so much, I immediately purchased the first in the series and looked for the third.
