DareMeCvr (1)Title: Dare Me
Author: Eric Devine
Publication Date: October 8, 2013


When Ben Candido and his friends, Ricky and John, decide to post a YouTube video of themselves surfing on top of a car, they finally feel like the somebodies they are meant to be instead of the social nobodies that they are. Overnight, the video becomes the talk of the school, and the boys are sure that their self-appointed senior year of dares will live in infamy. Every dare brings an increased risk of bodily harm, but Ben cannot deny the thrill and sense of swagger that come with it. The stakes become even more complex when a mysterious donor bankrolls their dares in exchange for a cut in the online revenue the videos generate. But at what point do the risk and the reward come at too high of a price? What does it take to stay true to one’s self in the face of relentless pressure?

  1. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
    else experiencing problems with your blog. It appears like
    some of the written text within your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thank you


    1. I’ve checked all the html in this post, and it looks okay, and all the text is fine on my computer. If anyone else is having problems, do let me know! But for now, I suspect that it could be a product of your browser >< !
