Author: Non Pratt Publisher: Walker Release Date: 1st June 2017 Genre: YA, Romance Pages: 384 --- A powerful and moving novel about bravery from the Guardian's "writer to watch" Non Pratt, perfect for fans of Rainbow Rowell, John Green and Holly Bourne. How far is too far when it comes to the people you love? Claire Casey hates being the centre of attention. But if it means getting Sef Malik to notice her, it’s a risk she’s happy to take. Sef is prepared to do anything to help his recently disabled brother. But this means putting Claire’s love – and life – on the line. Because when you're willing to risk everything, what is there left to lose? --- I’ve read both Remix and Unboxed by Non Pratt so Truth or Dare was definitely one I was looking forward to getting my hands on! I was not disappointed. This was both a tear-jerking and jaw-dropping read. Pratt’s style of writing allows you to feel all kinds of emotions – one moment you could be sobbing uncontrollably when Sef or Claire are getting deep with one another, and the next you could be on the edge of the seat, example: the second ‘proper’ dare that Sef decided to do. Yeah, that one… What I also loved about this book is the excellent diverse cast of characters. This is a fantastic read if you’re looking for some asexual/aromantic representation (which is hard to come across!) then I urge you to pick up this fab read. Also a Pakistani main character is something that’s not explored that often in YA. Claire was so sweet and Sef was flirty and hilarious and they were a pair that I adore. I also loved how much of an idiot Rich was and how empowering Seren was. These are definitely some characters that I’ll not be forgetting. They were brilliantly wrote.
I also loved the layout/structure of this book. It was a very creative thing to do to make the reader turn the book upside down halfway through and basically start the story all over again from somebody else’s POV.
I would definitely recommend this heart-stopping read from Pratt, and I’ve decided that I just need to get my hands on Trouble! 5 out of 5 stars! I also have to thank this book for getting me out of the mini-slump I was in!
