Synopsis

The New York Times bestseller is now a major motion picture starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco, in theaters this July!

A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it's exhilarating--Vee and Ian's fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they're directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they're playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?

Debut author Jeanne Ryan delivers an un-putdownable suspense thriller.

If characterization and theme are obvious, the pacing is nevertheless relentless, and readers will find themselves flipping madly to the very last page.

Could use less: Specifically sexual dares...Could use more: Explanation of what’s going on with Ian, who often turns into a personality-free dare prize of his own.
