Waiting on Wednesday: Dare You To, by Katie McGarry

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to showcase upcoming books that we're excited about.


This week's can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on pick is:

Release date: May 28, 2013
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Format: Hardcover, 304 pages

Goodreads description:
"I dare you..."

If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all....


I bet this one is a popular pick now that the cover has just been revealed, but ever since reading a short excerpt of this book at the back of my Netgalley ARC of Pushing The Limits, I can't wait to read Beth's story! I grew to really like her attitude in Pushing The Limits. She's a tough cookie. Not so sure about this Ryan guy though (jocks=so not my type)... but well, I love initially unlikely pairings. Interesting that we have a bad girl instead of a bad boy this time!
What do you think about the book? Did you enjoy Pushing The Limits? And what book are you eagerly anticipating?

  4. Yes! I want this book NOW! I was all for Beth and Isaiah hooking up in Pushing the Limits, and I've seen a lot of people upset that he's not the love interest in this one, but like you, I like unlikely pairings like that. Great pick! Thanks for sharing! Here's my WoW. Happy Wednesday! :D
