Truth or Dare by P J Night


For Review: Atom
Published: 5 April 2012


From Goodreads: During a round of Truth or Dare, Abby Miller confesses her crush on Jake Chilson. The only people who know her secret are her friends at the sleepover - and whoever sent her a text message in the middle of the night warning her to stay away from Jake...or else! But Abby isn't going to stay away from Jake, especially not after he asks her to the school dance. As the night of the dance comes closer, some very creepy things start happening to Abby. Someone definitely wants to keep her away from Jake. Is it a jealous classmate or, as Abby begins to suspect, could it be a ghost?

This is the first in a new series of spooky stories aimed at the 9-12 year old market for girls. And it's an enjoyable start.

The story is the perfect blend of romance, mystery and creep factor! Definitely aimed at a younger audience it's a really fun read - it reminded me of the point horror books I read when I was younger.

The story was quick to read so I think it would be very good for any reluctant readers too. It's engaging - I really wanted to find out what was going on! Who was behind all the creepy messages? And I also enjoyed the romance element to the story and looked forward to finding out what would happen with Jake and Max.

I also loved the ending! I'm not going to spoil it but I love how it may or may not be what they think! Great creepy fun!

This looks good, but the 'secret text messages' thing sounds too much like Pretty Little Liars for me though!
