Wow! This is a cracker of a story.As those of you who have read the first 6,Gaia is unable to feel fear,Mary(recovering cocaine addict.)and Ed(paralysed in both legs so in a wheelchair.) are her best friends and Heather is her worst enemy. In this installment we again meet Mary's ex-dealer and see Gaia loosen up a bit. We also see Gaia and Mary become even better friends(the last one cemented their friendship as Gaia got the bloke's who hurt Mary).Pascal has a talent for writing about friendships and that is very obvious in this book by the way she writes about Gaia,Mary and Ed's growing warmth towards each other.Gaia is suprised that someone as exciting and fun as Mary wants to be friends with her.She was shocked when Mary stood up for her when Heather was being mean to her in a nightclub(see:fearless 5)Mary is happy that she is getting Gaia to come out of her shell and be happy yet she also has a battle to fight,her one against cocaine.Ed,however,is feeling left out,both from this game and as his obvious disablity is 'getting in the way' or so he feels.He is also worrying about Gaia and feels he can't help.This books begining is as good as it's ending which is unbelieveable! This is another excellent book from Pascal,full of life and energy,you won't be able to put it down!

Gaia has finally found someone she can really trust. Mary is cool, fun and knows just how to have a good time; truth or dare. For the first time Gaia has a real friend, someone she can just let it all go with. Even if it does involve, kissing a stranger, streaking and a bit of vandalism. Gaia doesn't care though, she does it for the buzz. Until Mary starts freaking out about her old dealer, she owes him money and he's not going to let things drop with out a fight.
