Not everyone who goes into the woods comes out….

It was supposed to be a short hike, a way for Fletcher and Adam to kill time one boring afternoon. But when day turns into night and neither boy returns home, their town is thrown into turmoil.

Search teams comb the forest. Then Avery, the police chief’s daughter, stumbles on a body. It’s Fletcher—disoriented, beaten, and covered in blood. He has no memory of the incident, and worse yet, he has no idea what happened to the still-missing Adam.…

As danger and suspicion grow, one thing becomes very clear: No one can escape the truth.

Praise for Hannah Jayne’s The Dare:

“Well-rounded characters spark with life in this chiller.” —Booklist
“Reminiscent of Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series, The Dare is a novel that truly makes one think about their own actions— and the possible consequences.” —Teen Reads

"Avery is part of search and rescue team, and she is the one that finds Fletcher. He is beaten, bloody, and nearly unconscious. Adam is nowhere to be seen. After Fletcher is somewhat recovered, he is questioned by the police about the whereabouts of Adam. But Fletcher has no memory of the incident. All he knows is that someone killed Adam and tried to kill him—but failed.

The plot of this book was fantastic. The book had so many twists and cliffhangers it was hard to put it down. Nothing in this book was disappointing" — SLJ Teen Newsletter

The author's knowledge concerning traumatic memory loss and schizophrenia helps create an authentic and compelling story...Students who enjoyed R. L. Stine's scary stories in elementary school and are fans of Caroline B. Cooney's thrillers should find this book appealing." — VOYA Magazine
