About the Book:
Title: 10 TRUTHS AND A DARE
Author: Ashley Elston
Pub. Date: May 4, 2021
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
This companion to Ashley Elston’s beloved 10 Blind Dates follows Sophie’s high-achieving cousin Olivia as she juggles last-minute P.E. credit, end-of-year parties, and a secret new romance in the chaotic week before graduation.
It’s Senior Party Week, that magical in-between time after classes have ended but before graduation, chock-full of gimmicky theme parties, last-minute bonding, and family traditions. Olivia couldn’t be more ready. Class salutatorian and confident in her future at LSU, she’s poised to sail through to the next phase of her life.
But when the tiny hiccup of an unsigned off-campus P.E. form puts Olivia in danger of not graduating at all, she has one week to set things straight without tipping off her very big and very nosy extended family. Volunteering to help at a local golf tournament should do it, but since Olivia’s mom equipped her phone with a tracking app, there’ll be no hiding the fact that she’s at the golf course instead of all the graduation parties happening at the same time. Unless, that is, she can convince the Fab Four–her ride-or-die cousins and best friends Sophie, Charlie, and Wes–to trade phones with her as they go through the motions of playing Olivia for the week.
Praise for 10 blind dates
2020 ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers Top Ten Title
2020 Florida Teens Read Book List
“POSITIVELY DELIGHTFUL—all caps—from beginning to end.”—NPR
“This piece-by-piece romance doesn’t need its Christmas theme to sell, but it makes it glitter all the more.”—Booklist
“A fun story of finding love, getting to know yourself, and getting to know your family.”—Kirkus Reviews
“In a funny holiday romance that has Sophie dog-sitting in a hockey rink, watching porn at a drive-in theater, and playing the Virgin Mary in a middle school Nativity, Elston cleverly reflects the family members’ personalities through their choices of dates for Sophie.”—Publishers Weekly
OMG THIS WAS SUCH A CUTE CONTEMPORARY NOVEL!! The Messina family is back and this time the story is focused on Olivia Messina (one of the cousins from 10 Blind Dates). I loved seeing the family again. The trouble begins when it’s Olivia’s senior year but she finds out from her principal that she’s ONE credit short of graduation. She has an unfinished PE course credit and with the help of her cousins they come up with a scheme so that her parents won’t find out she’s behind on graduation. I absolutely adored this book, but the one thing I was kind of dissappointed about was the fact that I was looking forward to the cousins actually playing truth or dare at some point in the book. This is perfect for anyone who loves reading about people with big families and the drama that ensues!
