Waiting on Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine.  WoW gives us the opportunity to highlight an upcoming release that we are really excited about.

Dare You ToDare You To by Katie McGarry
Expected Release Date: May 28, 2013

Summary from GoodReads:

“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….


You guys, I loved Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry so much.  I can’t wait to read her sophomore novel.  I am sure it will be amazing, but I can’t imagine loving it more than Pushing the Limits.

  7. I haven’t yet read Pushing the Limits, so I haven’t seen the magic of Katie McGarry that everyone’s been hyping about.

    This book sounds really good! I definitely need to read Pushing the Limits!!

  8. I have a feeling I’m going to enjoy this book even more than PtL. Dare You To sounds just like my kind of book (“bad girl”&”nice boy”). Can’t wait!

  9. Christina T says:

    I haven’t read Pushing the Limits but this does sound good, kind of like Perfect Chemistry.

    • Quinn says:

      I’ve heard lots of people say that Pushing the Limits reminded them of Perfect Chemistry. I read PtL first, then read Perfect Chemistry. Although I liked PC I love PtL more. So excited to read Dare You To.

  10. Sandra says:

    I can’t wait to read this too! And I love the cover.

  11. I absolutely loved Pushing the Limits and I can’t wait to read this one when it comes out. I’m really excited to see what happens with Beth. Great pick! I hope you enjoy reading it too.
    Come check out my WOW post.

    I loved PTL it was awsome and i just read a sneek peek of dare you to OMG is gonna be greate but im sad that isaiah not gonna be beths one true love because they had such a good bond in PTL but carn’t wait till it comes out

    • Quinn says:

      PtL was amazing! Definitely one of my favorite books I read this year. I can’t wait for Dare You To, but I know what you mean about Isaiah not being for Beth. But I’m guessing that means he gets his own story, which I am okay with 🙂
