Edge-of-your-seat captivating from page 1

Summary:

After the last incident at Bayview High, no one thinks things could get any worse. When Simon Kelleher died, apparently his gossip app died, too. But then someone begins texting a Truth or Dare  game to individual students. Phoebe ignored the first text, only to have a secret revealed.  Students are taking more and more dangerous dares to protect their secrets. By the time Knox is targeted, things are escalating fast. A student is killed, and the whole school is spooked. Who is the next student chosen by text, and who is the one doing this?


Teen Student Reviewer (15):
I'll read this again! I adored this book a lot, especially because I really love anything mystery and thriller. The sequel did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed it even better than book 1 because of all the new characters. The plot leads you down a path where you expect to be able to guess what happens in the end, but it really takes you on a whole new journey. The entire time I felt like a detective trying to piece together the different clues and perspectives. That gave it a whole new level of experience that I really enjoy.
