Holy Crickets, guys.
This book is seriously amazing. I don’t even know what to say about it.
You start off with your book-typical normal girl who is plain and blah blah blah blah… she has a best friend that is drop-dead gorgeous… she is in love with a really hot, popular guy… nerdy boy likes said normal, plain girl.
Sounds typical, right?
THE ANSWER IS NO WREN, THAT ISN’T RIGHT BECAUSE THAT ISN’T THIS BOOK.
After a lot of anger is built up in Vee (the plain girl) she goes against gorgeous best friend and nerdy guy’s wishes and she joins Nerve.
What in the world is Nerve? It’s a game. I would describe it as truth or dare minus the truth and plus a lot of cool prices if you succeed with the dare.
These dares are things like (these are not in the book, by the way) wearing a fur coat at a animal rescue charity event while singing Cruella Deville or singing loudly in a library while throwing books and running around like a maniac. They don’t start there. You have to apply first by doing dares that you can pick from. As Vee figures out, sometimes you can take the easiest dare and it can literally give you the fame you don’t/do want.
BUT what happens when they start including your personal life? How do they know the things they know about you? Who is telling them and who can you trust? What about that partner they give you for the live round? Are they a plant or are they in it for the cool prizes too?
And how do they know what exactly will get you to finish a dare?
Who even IS NERVE?
This book is written at the aim of young adults/teens and it comes off that way; but unlike a lot of young adult books, it doesn’t make you feel like a young adult wrote it. It is so entertaining, I can’t even explain that to you. Vee is very relatable and you are questioning everything even more than she is. Seriously, you will find yourself laughing at some parts and not able to do anything else until you finish it.
And that ending… ohhhh I wish there was a next one; but at the same time it is such a good ending to hate that… omgsh PLEASE read this book and tell me what you think because I need someone else to read this book and go to the movie with me and then have discussions on discussion about it because seriously I loved it and PLEASE READ THIS BOOK.
You go Ryan! Write more things, please?
