Reviews for Pushing The Limits:
The love story of the year - Teen Now

A real page-turner --Mizz

A romance with a difference --Bliss

I adored everything about this book and think it s an amazing debut. It s definitely one of my favourite contemps of 2012 and I already can t wait for Dare You To a companion novel to Pushing the Limits to come out! Highly recommend to fans of hard hitting, edgy, contemporary and to anyone who loves a smouldering, sexy, consuming love story to boot! --Jess Hearts Books Blog

McGarry s debut YA novel Pushing The Limits is an edgy YA romance that doesn t shy of pulling punches.McGarry is definitely a YA author to keep an eye out for; I m very interested to see what she will write next and she certainly can write sexual tension very well. --Choose YA Blog

Pushing the Limits was a sucker punch of a story, so beautifully and tragically told that now over a week since I finished reading I still can't get it out of my head, full of brilliant one liners and descriptive prose it really is going to be a hard book to beat, without a doubt my favourite contemporary of the year so far. --Read and Repeat Blog

Dare You To is the very anticipated sequel to Katie McGarry's fantastic debut novel Pushing the Limits (read my review here). Before I start discussing Dare You To I should first explain the sheer impact it's prequel had on me. Pushing the Limits was unquestionably one of my favorite reads of 2012 and set a very high bar for Dare You To. The emotions and themes touched by Katie McGarry in this prequel were heart wrenching to the point that I will confess that by the end I had shed a tear or two.
Suffice to say that I had high expectations for Dare You To given what Pushing The Limits had previously delivered.

In all truthfulness although I did enjoy Dare You To it did not touch me the way Echo and Noah's story did.
Picking up with one of the trio of friends to whom we had previously been introduce to in Pushing The Limits, Dare You To is the story of Elisabeth, who prefers to be called Beth (and she is quite vocal about this preference), and Ryan. Like in Pushing The Limits alternate chapters are written from either Beth's or Ryan's point of view, a style of narration that I always very much enjoy as it allows an increased insight into each character's mind, personality and into the different relationships they have.

Similarly to Echo and Noah, Beth and Ryan each have a complicated history. One wears it like shield along side the f*** off sign stamped on her forehead, whilst the other hides it behind a façade of perfection in the hope that if it remains hidden long enough it just might go away.

Format: Kindle Edition
Dare You To is the 'sequel' to the very successful Pushing the Limits. I say 'sequel' because this is actually a standalone novel as part of a series of books based on different couplings from the same group of friends. This book focuses on Beth, if you've read Pushing the Limits you'll remember her as the b**** who didn't like Echo, and Ryan, a high school jock set to be a baseball pro.

What's great about this novel is that it deals with several different themes, not just teenage romance as it would appear. Another major theme is dysfunctional families, of which there are many. Both Beth and Ryan have incredibly dysfunctional families: Beth is living with her uncle because her drunk mother can't look after her and Ryan's seemingly perfect family are hiding the fact that their eldest son, Ryan's brother, is gay. Beth and Ryan's family backgrounds are the complete opposite of each other and yet they are somehow similar. I would say that Beth's story takes precedence in this novel as it's more complex and most of the things that happen are somehow linked to her story. These themes give the novel that extra depth and makes the novel much more interesting to read than your average romance.

Katie McGarry's writing is just as good as it's always been and she has created another brilliant novel with Dare You To. Her writing is addictive and once you get started you just can't stop reading until you reach the conclusion. Her writing can make you swoon but it can also make you feel like your heart is breaking. Once this story gets going you start to feel connected to both the main characters, Beth and Ryan, and you can't help but root for them.

I loved McGarry's Pushing the Limits but this second book is even better: darker, edgier, with an even more damaged heroine in Beth - and a heartfelt, ravishing love story at its heart.

If you haven't read McGarry before (do!) it's worth knowing that she bypasses the paranormal for YA heroes and heroines with real issues: I don't want to say anything to give away the plot, but Beth has serious problems in her life, and Ryan - seemingly perfect baseball jock - has both hidden depths and issues which no-one knows about.

Set in the last year of American high school, this is a coming-of-age novel where our characters really do grow, learn and make choices that change their lives. This has its disturbing moments but also its light-hearted ones - highly-recommended as an intense read that is difficult to put down.

First I would like to start of by saying that yes this is the 'second' in the series there isn't an awful lot about the previous characters and where as I would advise you read the 1st one before this, I cant imagine it be that big of a deal if you didn't. Right, now on to the actual review. I should probably say that one of the main reasons I was reading this to start of with was because I'm not only very behind on my reviews but I'm very behind on my netgalley reading list, I'm magpie like in the sense that I get distracted by pretty things e.g books haha, but since being able to read The Geography of You and Me, I sorta made a pledge to myself to this year catch up on all the books I've been given permission to read early and haven't. Also, I was a really big fan of the first book and cant believe it has taken me this long to read this one.

Anyway like the summary suggest, this book is about two very different main characters. We have Ryan, the jock baseball player who has an obsession with dares and Beth, the deeply troubled young girl just trying to last long enough to escape. Ryan seems to have it all, good looks, great friends, lots of money and above all a loving family. What people don't know is that things aren't always what they seem, Ryan's family are falling apart and all of their money is tied up in his baseball, something his dad pushes him hard to succeed in. Ryan on the other hand isn't sure that's exactly what he wants to do anymore, unfortunately try telling that to is dad.
Beth on the other hand has very little other than her mother, and she doesn't even have that most of the time.
