Dare Me by Megan Abbott


Addy Hanlon and Beth Cassidy are the varsity cheerleaders all the other girls fear and admire, the unchallenged rulers of their high school kingdom. But everything changes when the new coach arrives. Cool and commanding, Coach French seems perfect in every way, a charismatic presence who overturns the girls’ established pecking order and still manages to gain their fierce allegiance in the process. Then a shocking event upends their fragile peace, and a police investigation begins circling in on the coach and her squad. As the girls’s season moves towards its highly anticipated finale, Addy and Beth are forced to ask where their loyalties lie as they stakes grow higher, and more dangerous.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book.  It brought me back to the days where these were the only types of books that I used to read in high school 🙂  Full of DRAMA!!!  I love how the author was able to create characters that really reflect distinctive personalities of the present day teenager. Yes, a little scary for a parent of 2 daughters myself, but Abbott did create a story that I feel a lot of teens these days can relate to which is unfortunate but true.
