That moment when you grab a random book from an author that you really wanted to read without even read the plot and LOVED IT. LOVED IT. LOVED IT!
I wanted to read a Non Pratt book since months now and when I have heard 'Truth or Dare' will be released in few weeks I had to pre-order it. I didn't even bother to read the plot and the story left me without words. WOW!
Truth or Dare is about Sef and Claire, two teenagers, who decide to open a youtube channel where they will accept every kind of 'truth or dare' in order to raised money for Sef's brother who has a brain accident and he needs a huge amount of money to proceeding with the therapy that he needs.
This book is so realistic and it is also written with two point of views: Claire's POW domains the first part of the book and you need to turn the book to keep going with the story and read Sef's POW! I loved it so much.
It is so overwhelming. It is also about grief and trust.
Truth or Dare can easily categorized as a diverse book:
- disability: Kam is one of the most loved kid in the school until an injury to his brain: he can't move or talk as before.
- asexuality: Claire's BFF is asexual and there is also awareness in trying to respect her asexuality. I loved this aspect because I think ToD is my first book with an asexual character and thinking that I wasn't even aware of asexuality before started reading the Riverdale's conversation.
- POC: the male MC is not white. I don't think the author ever specified his origin but there are lines where has been specified that Sef is definitely not white.
If you are looking for a fast and heartbreaking reading, TRUTH OR DARE is the right book for you!
