About the Author
Praise For Dare Me…
School Library Journal
The extreme dares will appeal to boys, but readers of both genders will identify with the fear and uncertainty Ben and his friends face...With timely subject matter yet universal themes, this novel should be a popular one.”
"Though sometimes the emotional intensity is discomforting, it has sweet parts that keep the reader smiling."
"This follow-up to Tap Out (2012) should further establish Devine as a go-to author for gritty stories about guys fighting on the fringe. . . . [W]onderfully inarticulate characters and subtle insight into our culture of quick but damaging fame."
"In a culture where online audiences are always ready for the must-see link of the moment and corporations are eager to capitalize on user-generated content, Devine's story takes on a chilling reality. . . . An adrenaline-inducing read about teens getting in over their heads as they try to make something of themselves."
"Devine's examination of the teenage boy's need for adrenaline is admirably complex . . . Astute and riveting."
Riveting and fast paced, this book is hard to put down. I recommend it for mother-daughter book clubs with girls aged 14 and up.”
