Dare Me by Megan Abbott is a 2012 Picador Books publication After reading You Will Know Me I knew I wanted to read Megan Abbott and I had even picked this book to be the next in line It just took me a few years to finally get around to it Much has changed since this book was published in 2012 I know it was only eight years ago but while the mean girls trend was successful and still pops up in various forms of entertainment its shock value had been greatly reduced Still this book is one dark and twisted ride For those of us who lived outside of the exclusive world of cheerleading it seemed almost like a secret society The girls are always popular always attractive They are perky and enthusiastic and of course they can perform all those death defying stunts Behind the scenes though there are bruises and punishing workouts and the threat that hangs over them the possibility of severe injury Cheerleading is like an exclusive enclave but there is to it than cute outfits and the entertaining acrobatics There is a brutal physical toll and those stunts can be incredibly dangerous But just like anything else there is always the possibility of a dark side lurking just beneath the surface This novel gives readers a front row seat for an inside peek into what goes on behind that carefully crafted fa ade in the highly competitive world of cheerleading The premise at least in the beginning isn t all that shocking on the surface We have Beth Cassidy the undisputed leader of the cheerleading suad and her best friend Addy cruising along unchallenged while the other team members acuiesce to her demands and leadership knowing their place or else Then a new coach takes over and upends Beth s hierarchy Immediately it becomes clear that Coach French will reuire a lot discipline from the girls demanding they perform tricky stunts and announcing there is no longer the need for a team captain While Beth seemingly takes all this in stride one senses Beth is biding her time waiting to pounce to take her revenge Coach French will pay a price for her demands and Beth expects Addy to fall in line with her as usual However Addy is a little bit in awe of Coach French who inspires her try harder to uestion her friendship with Beth As a result she soon finds herself caught between loyalty to Beth and her respect for Coach French Until The new coach who happens to be married is found in a compromising position with another man When her new lover allegedly commits suicide Abby finds herself pulled deeper into the Coach s web as the police begin to uestion the cause of death As damning evidence mounts Abby begins to suspect several people in her inner circle of foul play This is a fiendishly entertaining very clever and uncomfortably realistic novel The dangerous machinations and power struggles between these teenage girls almost eclipse the murder mystery and is a constant diversion blinding you to even sinister developments By the end of the book I was on the edge of my seat Overall this is a compelling drama a taut cat and mouse guessing game that is highly disturbing and deliciously macabre 4 stars
