Series: Capital Girls # 3
Published by St. Martin's Griffin on April 23, 2013
Jackie, Lettie, and Laura Beth barely survived the holidays . . . literally. Jackie's on lockdown while the hunt is on for her stalker, who somehow got into the White House and left her an ominous note. Laura Beth and Sol are finally back together after a scandal almost tore them apart, and Lettie, who’s forced to live with Whitney and her gossip-mongering mom, has let down her guard enough to fall in love with Daniel. For the Capital Girls life is always complicated, especially when they're under 24-hour media scrutiny. But that won’t stop the three friends from making their senior year the most amazing ever—even as the mystery deepens over Taylor Cane's death and First Son Andrew Price’s role in it.
The characters are split into two distinct groups: the good guys and the bad guys. It’s hard to get too emotionally invested in characters who lack distinction and who are, ultimately, forgettable.
Truth or Dare features a BIG LESSON, and in case it’s missed, it is spelled out for us: “A real relationship was built on so much more than sex. At the core was genuine friendship. And that meant trusting and talking and having patience and forgiveness.” OK, I can get on board with this. I just wish I didn’t have to read such petty melodrama to get there.
Note – I received an ARC of this book from the publisher for review.
