    One thought on “The Dare”

    1. In reality, The Dare should be called I Know What You Did Last Summer. So Brynna and a bunch of friends went to some beach one night and she dared her best friend Erica to dive. Unfortunately, Erica didn't make it back up; her body wasn't even found.In The Dare we have the typical case of I-shuld-have-been-the-one-to-die syndrome. Brynna is constantly feeling guilty and thinks she killed her friend. Right.So Brynna's parents move to another town so her ex alcoholic and drug addict daughter could [...]

    2. I love Hannah Jayne's stories. She never ceases to bring an edge of suspense and mystery into each and every one of her books. An almost creepy vibe like feel keeping you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next and most of all, who can be trusted and who can't.The Dare kept me guessing and wondering right up to the very end. Constantly in a state of turmoil wondering if the protagonist was crazy, disturbed or if someone was really out to get her. As haunting pieces of that night [...]

    3. (I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.)The Dare was an okay read, but it got dragged out more than it needed too.I felt really sorry for Brynnaeverything she went through must have been awful. I liked Evan to start with, but he started to really annoy me when he was trying to find out what had happened to Brynna. I get that he cared for her, and wanted to know what was troubling her so badly, but he was so pushy! He did get better after that, but his pushiness done [...]

    4. One night, a group of friends playing games on the beach led to a dare, one with deadly consequences. Besties Erika and Bryn jumped off the pier and into the chilly ocean, but only Bryn made her way back out again. After drowning her grief with drugs and alcohol and forced by the court to go through a mandatory stay at rehab, her parents move her an hour away to start over at a new school. High school was hard enough just being the new girl, especially when you suffer from a heavy case of surviv [...]

    5. When a simple game of truth or dare leads to the death of a teenage girl, a whole town is flooded with confusion and sorrow. The Dare by Hannah Jayne follows the life of Brynna, the dead girl’s best friend, the girl who created the fatal dare.Their whole lives, Brynna and Erica were inseparable, destined to be best friends for life. Then, at a summer beach party with all of their friends, a game of truth or dare fueled by alcohol caused everything to change. It was simple; Brynna dared Erica t [...]

    6. It's really good, I like the suspense in the book but at times it was confusing because they would flashback but overall its a really good book. I definitely recommend it if you like suspense.

    7. Personal Response: When I picked up this book and started reading, I found myself not wanting to stop reading. There were so many great cliffhangers throughout the book that made me want to keep reading. I love the constant mysterious events that took place throughout the book. Overall, I thought this book was very great and my favorite part was the ending.Plot: Brynna was a great student, swimmer, and loved her best friend Emma. When Brynna found herself getting caught up in drugs and drinking [...]

    8. Basically, The Dare is about two best friends: Erica and Bryn. They did absolutely everything together just like all normal best friends do. Except one night, they were partying and drinking and Erica got dared to jump into the water. Being the best friend that she is, Bryn decides to do it too. So they jump into the water, but Erica is nowhere to be seen afterwards. Only Bryn comes back up to the surface and is still alive. Nobody knows where Erica is, because her body couldn't be found anywher [...]

    9. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Fire and NetGalley.)17-year-old Brynna is starting at a new school in a new town, after her best friend Erica drowned during a dare.Someone is stalking Brynna though, and she’s scared that it may be Erica.What is going on? Is Erica really gone? And who is out to get Brynna and why?This was an okay story, but I wanted answers a lot faster than we got them.Brynna was an okay character. I cou [...]

    10. I liked the other Hannah Jayne books I've read so picked this one up, anticipating a good mystery. I was disappointed and almost gave it 3 stars instead of 4. Brynna dared her friend to jump into the ocean when they were both drinking and drugging. What? Yes, that's our heroine. She wasn't a nice girl to begin with and ended up in rehab after her friend drowned. Now she's in a new school, but being haunted by her dead buddy. Could Erica still be alive? They never found her body. Frankly I got a [...]

    11. Also posted on my YA Book Blog.3.4 stars.So The Dare was one of those books that I wanted to like more than I actually did. It wasn't that the book was bad or poorly written or I didn't like the premise. I thought it was well done and I thought that it was a fairly interesting idea of guilt and mistakes and friendship, but I was never really in to it like I normally am.I think it dragged a little in the middle and sometimes there was too much going on so there wasn't enough character development [...]

    12. Oh, man, what a great book! Really enjoyed the mystery and the wonder if she was going crazy, and yeah, can't wait for her next book!

    13. Personal Response:The Dare was honestly very hard to get into at first. I wasn’t really getting hooked by anything in the book. About halfway through, I started to enjoy it a lot more because I enjoy reading murder mysteries. I started to have my own opinion about the characters especially at the end of the story, when things really got good. Overall, The Dare was a very interesting story that gave me a new perspective on things. Plot:It all started on the beach in Point Lobos, the night when [...]

    14. Another excellent and suspenseful book!! I absolutely loved it! The pain, horror, and torture (of not knowing) that the main character went through had me at the edge of my seat throughout the whole book. It was a non stop reader for me.

    15. I found this to be a pretty unpredictable book. A few times I got a little angry because of the way that this story was written. At one moment, you’d have the story going on, and then you’d have flashbacks to Brynna’s life of before. However, there are unexpected events that happen in the story, and I am truly grateful for those events.There is a serious case of Survivor’s Guilt, and an extreme case of Paranoia in The Dare. The stuff that Brynna goes through throughout The Dare is insane [...]

    16. The reason I read this book was because the cover of this book looks scary and I like scary books. The main character of this book is Brynna who gets nightmares of her best friend, Erica. Erica died because of her friend's stupid dares and Brynna is constantly getting nightmares about it. Someone may even be stalking or haunting her. Characters:Brynna is a high school girl who is really good at swimming, but also smokes, takes drugs, and drinks. She does this to prevent all the nightmares she ke [...]

    17. **I received this book from NetGalley/Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Young Adult, Mystery*Rating* 3.5*My Thoughts*"Promise me that you'll never leave me alone."The Dare is the story about Seventeen-year old Brynna Chase. Eighteen months ago, she lost her best friend, Erica Shaw, to a silly dare that went horribly wrong and she hasn't found a way to forgive herself, or move on. Bryn put herself t [...]

    18. This book was exactly what I needed to break out of my reading rut. It was a good, suspenseful mystery. It reminded me of the old RL Stine books that I used to read. I read it very quickly and I needed to know if Bryn was imagining something or if someone was torturing her. Everything makes sense when you get to the end.I felt like most of the focus was on Bryn’s experiences, not who she was as a character. Normally, this would drive me crazy, but it worked really well for this book. The myste [...]

    19. I was really excited for the tension and mystery that the premise implied, but it never happened. I felt like it was a cheesy rip off of I Know What You Did Last Summer. I didn't like Brynna. She was whiny and scared all the time [which is understandable to a point], I struggled with the fact that she didn't seem to make any attempt to get/feel better. She lies to everyone about everything and it got old pretty quickly. The cast of new friends were interesting enough, but they were a clichéd se [...]

    20. I received this copy free from the publishers via NetGalleyDNF 32%The Dare is about Brynna after she dared her best friend Erica to jump of the pier, but she died. Bryn has to deal with the guilt of that night and she spiralled out of control. Bryn thought she had moved past it but someone doesn't want her to forget.I really do not like reviewing books that I have not finished. I feel like I can't give a good judgement on the book. I was just so bored with this. The first chapter was OK, but I r [...]

    21. Erica and Bryanna are best friends, they did everything together together; including jumping from a pier one night into the inky ocean water. Sadly only Bryanna made it back to shore. Erica's body pretensions were never found over that period of time. A year later, Bryanna & her family have relocated to a new town for a fresh start. However, Bryanna begins to receives a strange voice nail and messages from Erica's Twitter. Bryanna begins to become unnerved as the strange things continue to h [...]

    22. I read Truly, Madly, Deadly and See Jane Run by this author and loved them so I knew I had to read this book! I enjoyed it just as much as her other books. It hooked me from the beginning til the very last pages. Brynna and Erica are best friend. Brynna is jealous of Erica but she never knew a dear could lead to death. When Erica dies Brynna blames herself and faces survivors guilt. She starts at a new school where no one knows what happens. But then she starts getting messages from Erica and sh [...]

    23. This had the potential to be so much more. I was riveted at the very beginning with the flashback/nightmare of the night of the accident. It was well-written - panic inducing and terror-filling. It was that initial scene that propelled me forward and kept me reading through what ended up being an ok story with shifty (not sure if it was on purpose or not) characters and a grand exercise in telling, not showing. All in all, the story was decent but predictable and forgettable. I had high hopes ba [...]

    24. *3.5 stars*The Dare was much better than Truly, Madly, Deadly, in my opinion. This book is well paced with a better plot twist than the one in Truly, Madly, Deadly as well. The story overall was very intriguing and entertaining hence my reading it in one day.;) My only complaints of this novel is that the ending was rather abrupt and I didn't like the writing that much, but other than that I thought this book wasn't anything special but worth picking up if you're in the mood for it.;)

    25. 0 stars.Why is it that every summer I always end up reading at least ONE shitty book?Get ready to hear about one of the most brutally toxic friendships I’ve ever read about in a book. Which is seriously saying something at this point.Mother and Father of all shit. I have not had a book piss me off this badly since 2013. Brace yourselves, because this is going to be another rant n’ rage review. *cracks knuckles*Firstly, let me start off by saying that even though this book has a gay character [...]

    26. The Dare is an enticing novel written by author Hannah Jayne. This book initially caught my attention because of its front cover as it has an air of suspense and eeriness to it. The cover art features cool blue colours suggesting sadness and depression. The way the book’s title is stretched and blurred, adds suspense and suggests elements of evilness and non-innocence.As the book is called The Dare, it intrigues the reader as to what the storyline is about and what ‘the dare’ is. The cover [...]

    27. This book was jointly reviewed by myself and my co-blogger, Becca!We were very excited to read this story together, thus we felt we should review it together as well. This time we went for more of a discussion review, as we felt like we both had a lot to say about this one. Enjoy! :)Lisa: Well, where do we even begin with this one, huh? I guess we should start immediately at the beginning. Chapter 1. Definitely creepy, right?! I thought that was a great way to start this book. After that beginni [...]

    28. SPOILER ALERT“Real friends never let go. She made the dare. Now she can’t face the truth.”- The Dare by Hannah Jayne“After, nothing is ever the same.”- Looking For Alaska by John Green The Dare by Hannah Jayne and Looking For Alaska by John Green has similar themes, both books also contain powerful lessons about how the feeling of guilt can block, cover and blind you from the truth. The Dare by Hannah Jayne and Looking For Alaska by John Green are both books sharing the theme that guil [...]

    29. Honestly this interesting little book deserved a three until the ending, while I was sold on the story -- the PTSD, the paranoia, the guilt, everything -- I didn't buy the ending. Jayne went a little too unbelievably south on that one.But the story itself was a three. I wasn't a big fan of the flashbacks, one thing authors need to learn is that when you italicize something the chance the reader is going to do much more than skim is low, at best. But I like Brynna and Lauren, Evan and Teddy. I di [...]
