BOOK DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
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?
NERVE is an thrill-a-minute. As
a reader I totally felt the discomfort and nervousness Vee feels during
the dares she decides to complete for the game. Introducing Ian as her
dare partner is a stroke of genius because he just adds to the thrill,
but in a much different way. What makes this book so good is the fact
that everyone can relate. Who wouldn’t contemplate standing up in a
crowded room and singing Mary Had a Little Lamb if they were going to
win a brand new iPhone if they did it. The problem is, once you complete
one dare it gets easier and easier to complete the next and the game is
designed to get progressively harder. The ending is one that leaves you
thinking about what really happens to Vee. There are so many
