10 Truths and a DareNew
It turns out that when she did not take the class seriously, she did not end up with the number of minutes needed to get credit for the class. The teacher allows her one last opportunity to make it up by volunteering at the golf tournament. As she volunteers, she tries to hide it from her large and involved family, particularly her mother, with the help of her friends. It's a week when she re-examines her priorities and learns more about herself, as well as getting to know the cute guy who is suddenly back in her orbit named Leo.
Olivia learns a lot during the course of the story, and I appreciated her character growth plus the ultimate focus on honesty/integrity. There are some really funny moments with her mother's overbearing texts that her friends/cousins help her to handle and plenty of cute moments throughout. The book is short and breezy, making it great pick for a summer afternoon read.
The romance was more background than I wish it was, but it still had plenty of swoon-worthy moments, and I was definitely cheering for them. I also wish that there was more resolution with her mother to set up some boundaries, but I get that most of it was likely for the comedy.
Overall, 10 TRUTHS AND A DARE was a charming and funny YA contemporary that is perfect for a summer afternoon read.
