|Dare You To|
This is the story of Beth and Ryan.
Beth is struggling to survive. Her mother is an alcoholic/drug addict. Her mom's boyfriend is a piece of work. He beats her up.
When things get out of control. Beth is sent to live with her uncle Scott (an ex-ball player) and his wife Allison. Allison is not happy to have this angry teenager in her house. Because, Beth is angry. She wants to stay with her best friend Isaiah. Instead she is forced to attend a new high school.
Before she left her old life she met Ryan Stone, who attempted to get her phone number as a dare. To her surprise good old boy Ryan is a student at her new school and he is a popular kid. At the beginning the dare is what makes Ryan become closer to Beth, but later on things change.
I like Ryan as a character. He is sweet and is up front. Even when he has to stand up to his family and friends to keep Beth in his life.
