Editorial Reviews

Review

Kirkus, 4/1/11
Very positive. With remarkably few exceptions, the short stories in this collection exemplify the best of the form, drawing readers immediately into the lives of characters who confront the hard truths of alienation, love, trauma and sex.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Chrissy on May 20, 2011
Format: Paperback
I bought this anthology because I'm a big fan of Emma Donoghue - and now I've found some awesome new authors to read too!! Although the 20 stories in this anthology are often about similar things like sex, embarrassment, comedy and growing up, there's lots of variety as well. The stories are gay, straight, dark, weird and funny. Heidi R Kling's `Head Gear Girl' is hilarious!!! The stories are written in different ways too - one is written completely in Tweets, which is a really cool idea. In all I reckon that this book is different from a lot of the other stuff out there, and celebrates being individual, rejecting conformity - like Gaga says - baby I was born this way!

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: This was full of love, humor, pain, embarrassing moments, and pretty much anything associated with the game truth & dare. I enjoyed most of the stories, but some were a little boring.

Opening Sentence: You know those intriguing warnings you get before the start of a suspect TV show or movie, such as: “This show contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing” or “This program contains strong language?”

The Review:

Truth & Dare is filled with short stories written by a handful of authors. The stories cover a range of different topics. Some were really funny and some were filled with disappointment. Growing up can be difficult in life, but it also is a defining part of our life. That is the time where we learn who we want to be, and everything you experience helps to shape you. All the stories being written talk about some of the issues teenagers go through while trying to grow up.

In the first story you learn that not everything is as it appears to you. Sometimes something that seems wonderful and great on the outside is totally different when you start taking away the layers. Another story talks about first love and all the embarrassing moments that come when trying to let someone get to know the real you. In one story a poor girl has to wear headgear to school at the age of 17, and she talks about how it affected her. Another story is about being too shy and not putting yourself out there, and the consequences that can come from it. Another one talks about rejection and that you need to stay true to yourself no matter what others say. There are many other stories and the topics covered were entertaining as well, but these were a few of my favorites.

By Savannah (Books With Bite) on September 15, 2011
Format: Paperback
One thing I enjoyed about this book is the variety in it. There is all sorts of love and heart ache in it. Lots of strong characters becoming weak. And weak characters becoming strong. Some stories made me angry while others made me happy. I loved the writing flow of the stories. I also wondered if some of the stories in the book would make it into full books. I would love to see more of how the characters progressed.

One thing I didn't really like is that there are some stories that are really graphic. I would recommend this book for 18+. Overall, it's a great book with loads of new authors I have not heard of. I look forward to reading more of the new authors work as they have caught my eye!

Once again, I love reading anthologies so I can get a taste of authors I'm unfamiliar with and read some additional writings from those I already love. This book has a lot of variations through the storytelling. Sarah Rees Brennan's tale "The Young Stalker's Handbook" was quick, cute, and funny. "Girl Jesus on the Inbound Subway" by Matthue Roth was one that caught me by surprise; I had no idea that's where he was heading with his story. Saundra Mitchell, whom I already love from reading Vespertine, had kind of a disturbing story with "The Last Will and Testament of Evan Todd", but it was done in a very intriguing kind of way. Other stories run the gamut from writing in Tweet form, to crying, to laughing, to loving, and even chocolate brains. Yep, chocolate brains. There is something that everyone can find to love in a book like this.
