The Fine Art of Truth or Dare - Melissa Jensen 2.5/5I was half hoping for more of Daniel when the book had ended. And then I realized that this one guy I had such high hopes for was more of a Jiminy Cricket than a freaking Prince Charming! I don’t like how this ended. There. I said it. I liked most everything and everyone prior to it: I did like her with her friends. I did like her with her family. I even liked her and her school with her not knowing if it was “the second best thing or the second worst thing ever to happen to her.” Heck, I even liked her more in the archives, searching for bits and pieces about her first love: Edward Willing, (dead though he was.) Why? Because then she showed more confidence, she knew what she was doing and wasn't shy about it. It was about her. Now, her with him, Alex, I mean? That’s another matter completely. Her and everyone elseThe one good thing in here was Frankie, even if at times he did get too out there. I would have loved more of him in it because his home truths painful as they were… were truths. As said it’s her with her friends that I liked although much could have been done to flesh them out some more. Sadie, who sings or the Sadie, who is their buffer or the Sadie with issues with her mother virtually disappears close to the end. Or take Daniel the rebel, Daniel the twin brother: Ergh, why were you in the story anyway? Despite that last bit though here's something stranger: How come the little mentions of him had me more excited than thinking of Ella and Alex together? Her and himThat bit where she owns up to hiding herself is true. But her conceding that he wasn’t (hiding her as well) felt off to me. Or maybe I just didn’t like how his character was first introduced. Sure if we were talking development, he would be the one to look at because from not knowing even her unknowingly mocking her then to otherwise. Well, I was of one mind with her BFF Frankie with his get over him and move on. I liked it then I didn’t.2.5/5
