I love to read and I blog about it.

Dare Me

Dare Me - Megan Abbott Dare Me is written in a voice that is staccato and flitting - sometimes repetitive. It took some getting used to, but it always seemed perfectly suited to these girls who had to be so focused on their cheer routines, but at the same time had so much to pay attention to, and be distracted by - their weight, text messages, parties and shifting allegiances. Once again Megan Abbott has written a novel about friendship, loyalty and love containing a compelling plot that is equally thoughtful and engaging. Recommended.
