Grief turned Jaycee into a daredevil, but can she dare to deal with her past?
On the anniversary of her daredevil brother's death, Jaycee attempts to break into Jake's favorite hideout—the petrifying ruins of an insane asylum. Joined by four classmates, each with their own brand of dysfunction, Jaycee discovers a map detailing her brother's exploration and the unfinished dares he left behind.
As a tribute to Jake, Jaycee vows to complete the dares, no matter how terrifying or dangerous. What she doesn't bargain on is her eccentric band of friends who challenge her to do the unthinkable: reveal the parts of herself that she buried with her brother.
My Review: I saw this book get great reviews. I loved the sound of it and thought I would love it.
Sadly that wasn't the case. I couldn't finish this book. I couldn't stand half of the characters. I didn't like the comic strips in the book. The story line was really good in some parts, and not so good in other parts.
I tried, but I couldn't stand this book.
