A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly
When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it's exhilarating--Vee and Ian's fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they're directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they're playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?
Debut author Jeanne Ryan delivers an un-putdownable suspense thriller.
Well this one started out fairly well. But then died a horrible death. You have the MC. Who apparently likes this boy etc. she did something wrong so she's grounded and has to be home by ten pm. In their world there's this site called Nerve where you can audition to be one of the live darers which all that was pretty cool.
So the MC decides on a whim to do one of the Dares and she does it. Then everyone finds out. It's all fun and games. She does end up being late home from the dare but plays it off to her parents.
Ok so a day goes by and all these comments start popping up etc. on her video. And then the company Nerve emails her saying want to win some shoes? Well do this dare. Ok so this is where I had the issue. I understand that this is a teen girl and that these shoes if you want them are on a three or four month waiting list. But I mean the MC seems like a pretty stand up straight forward girl. She works for the drama dept at school and pretty much listens to her parents. So WHY WHY WHY!!! Would she try and beat the clock to win some shoes!?!?!?!?
Ok so that's pretty much where I DNFed it.
In the end I'm kinda wondering why they are turning this book into a movie. When there are some amazing books out there!
