Synopsis:

The truth hurts.

What else is there to do, with all seven of them stuck in Dara Harker’s luxury ski condo? There are three guys and four girls—some of them friends, some nearly strangers—all of them trapped. A blinding blizzard has stilled the lifts, blocked the roads, and killed the phones.

A game, they think, will help them break the ice. Who will tell the truth? Who will take a dare? And how far will each of them go?

But then the game turns deadly. One of them, it seems, would rather kill than tell the truth.

And kill again.

My rating: ★★★★★

It started as a game... and ended in death.

April, her best friend Jenny, and Jenny’s boyfriend Ken, are invited to Dara’s ski condo for a couple days of fun. There they run into some of Dara’s acquaintances. They then decide to play a little game to get to know each other, but a fun game of truth or dare turns deadly when one questions sets off one of the guests, leading them to murder. Dun, dun, DUN!

Truth or Dare was SO good! It had many great plot twists I did not expect at all!

did not see that coming

Who the murder was and their motive, a twist about the murder itself, and even twistier twists surrounding the secret, the “truth,” that actually set off this person... it was insane!! Truth or Dare was suspenseful with a great setting, and an even better mystery! This is definitely one of the best Fear Street books I have read!

The Fear Street connection: I don't actually know for sure because, believe it or not, Fear Street isn't even mentioned in the book! However, we do know that the kids live in Shadyside, so I'm guessing one of the kids (probably April, since she is the main character) lives on Fear Street.
