Summary:It all started on a whim: the game was a way for Tenley Reed to reclaim her popularity, a chance for perfect Caitlin “Angel” Thomas to prove she’s more than her Harvard application. Loner Sydney Morgan wasn’t even there; she was hiding behind her camera like usual. But when all three start receiving mysterious dares long after the party has ended, they’re forced to play along—or risk exposing their darkest secrets.How far will Tenley, Caitlin and Sydney go to keep the truth from surfacing? And who’s behind this twisted game?
Set against the backdrop of Echo Bay, an isolated beach town haunted by misfortune, Truth or Dare is a highly charged debut that will keep readers in suspense from beginning to end.
My Thoughts: 

This book reminds me of Pretty Little Liars back when it was good. They're good books, but don't keep reading them past Wanted. DON'T DO IT. You will be sucked into the void of horrible books and you can't stop reading them because they're so addicting.
But, anyways, this book is suspenseful, it was good. But I felt a lot of things were rushed and pushed and it just felt unnatural. Especially the ending. It went too fast and everything happened way to fast and it was just weird. The characters were good however, there were a bunch of well-rounded, unique characters. And it was enjoyable, but I wanted to knock the hell out of all of them, but I could still relate to them. So much drama, drama in it, it was more teen-y than Pretty Little Liars and some of their situations were just idiotic. But, hey, that's YA.
Green's writing style is, however, unique and very, very good. Its strong and raw and hopefully I can see more from her, but maybe just not in this genre. We don't need any more Pretty Little Liars in the YA World.
