"Dare Me" by Megan Abbott

Dare Me by Megan Abbott uses a cheerleading squad to explore some common teenage girl issues such as jealousy, betrayal, hurt, manipulation and loyalty. This book was a bit of a disappointment to me because I didn’t like the coach at all. Her behavior throughout the book was inappropriate and it turned into a murder mystery that wasn’t all that big a mystery. The most interesting aspect in Dare Me for me was the tension between the coach and Beth. After reading this book, my impression of cheerleaders is even lower than it was before—it presents cheerleaders in a bad light. It left me feeling sad for Beth and angry at the coach.
