A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly
When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it's exhilarating--Vee and Ian's fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they're directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they're playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?
First things first: GO PREORDER THIS BOOK (Amazon, B&N) because it is amazing! Ryan creates a situation where Vee (who is incredibly identifiable in all her behind the scenes--literally--glory) is sucked into an incredibly crazy situation where the stakes just keep going up. The pace is fantastic and kept me up way late at night as I just couldn't put it down. Ryan's teen voice, too, is awesome. The way she portrays the social structure of the school and world of the game were spot-on. And Ian's just downright delightful :) And, despite a few things that happen (I don't want to be spoiler-y, I kind of like Tommy lots...). So, if you're looking for a great, fast, edge-of-your-seat read, check out Nerve!
