Truth or Dare was never this much fun...

Annie McFarland is sick of being a shy nobody. A session at summer camp seems like the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself—gain some confidence, kiss a boy, be whoever she wants to be. A few days in, she’s already set her sights on ├╝ber-hottie Kyle. Too bad her fear of water keeps her away from the lake, where Kyle is always hanging out.

Jacob Fazio is at Camp Pine Ridge after one too many screw-ups. Junior counseling seems like punishment enough, but the rigid no-fraternizing-with-campers rules harsh his chill. When a night of Truth or Dare gets him roped into teaching Annie how to swim, she begs him to also teach her how to snag Kyle.

Late-night swim sessions turn into late-night kissing sessions...but there’s more on the line than just their hearts. If they get caught, Jake’s headed straight to juvie, but Annie’s more than ready to dare him to reveal the truth.

MY REVIEW

Sweet. Sweet. Sweet. I sometimes forget how cute and sweet YA romance books can be.

aww

Monica Murphy created two adorable characters with Annie and Jake. Annie was incredibly shy and kind of a loner. She intended to use her camp experience as a way to force herself out of her shell, to make new friends, and to encourage herself to be more active. However, she was terrified of water and coerced Jake to teach her how to swim. Jake was amazing. Gosh, this guy was so dang cute! He was forced to be a counselor at his uncle's camp in order to avoid time in Juvie. He was forbidden to get involved with anyone while there. Yeah, cuz kids really like being told what NOT to do lol. He didn't expect his time there to be life changing.

What ensues is a lot of sweetness. No angst. No drama. No muss and no fuss.
