"We thought nothing and no one could touch us."
Addy Hanlon and Beth Cassidy are the unchallenged rulers of their high school kingdom. They're the girls that nobody crosses, captains of the cheerleaders, invincible. Until their new coach arrives – all sleek poise and cool command – and their world is changed forever.
That year, there are no limits. And in their quest for perfection, the girls begin to risk their lives. Faster, higher, brighter, bolder: they become warriors. But Coach French has been crossing a line of her own, and the consequences are devastating.
Dare Me is an electrifying novel about the fierce bonds between girls, their bitter rivalries, and their power to transform one another.
