It's never easy moving to a new school, especially when you've always been on the sidelines, so imagine CG Silverman's surprise when she's adopted into it girl Alona Spelton's inner circle. CG is terrified that once Alona and her clique discover who she really is, an unworldly tomboy, they'll drop her like last season's fads. CG is desperate to impress these girls, so when playing truth or dare, she maybe goes a little too far. One or two little lies grow into a monster that CG doesn't know how to stop. Propelled by a new rebellious image, CG finds herself getting involved in schemes she never would have before, like sneaking around with Alona's older brother and having an illicit online affair with her English teacher. Can CG stop herself before it's too late, or will everyone find out that's she's just a fraud?

It Started with a Dare tells the not particularly original story of a girl trying to fit into a new high school. The only way CG's story stands out is that she doesn't deliberately court popularity, or at least at first. Her inclusion in the in crowd comes as a total surprise to her, and unfortunately, once she realizes she's in, she focuses on staying in, transforming herself into a careless and selfish person. Although CG holds herself above the other members of Alona's clique, because she could care less about how she dresses and because she hangs out with a social outcast on the side, she really is no better than any of them, as CG eventually comes to understand. Her commitment to her new life of lies leads her to betray nearly every person, important or not, in her life, including herself. While CG's exploits contain an important message or warning to readers, it is poorly executed. I had difficulty getting into this story because I could see the path that CG had chosen was a terrible one and personally could not relate to her choices at all. To make matters worse, every other supporting character was poorly developed and often hard to understand or inconsistent.

Though I didn't find this novel particularly enjoyable, It Started with a Dare may still appeal to fans of Little Black Lies by Tish Cohen and The Diamonds by Ted Michaels.

Summary: CG has moved to a new school and sees this as her opportunity to make herself over as a popular rebellious girl with a mysterious background. Along the way she is entangled in two romantic relationships and is enmeshed in all of her lies.

Thoughts: Wow-does CG lie a lot! I really liked her at the beginning (she lives in southeastern Pennsylvania, roughly where I'm originally from) and she was funny and an outcast. But then she starts lying and lying and lying. She starts up an online flirtation with her English teacher; she starts up a flirtation with her friend's older brother, who has a girlfriend; she lies about having been an alcoholic; she shuns the one girl who genuinely likes her; she lies about her relationship experience; etc. I was disgusted most particularly with the way she brushed off how the affair with the teacher was inappropriate and she whined a lot about all of her lying without doing anything to remedy it.

At the end, her parents find out mostly everything and punish her. I am somewhat uncomfortable with her parents' invading her privacy; although she is a minor (she turns 16 toward the end of the book), I do believe that she is deserving of some privacy. Of course she was doing awful things with little thought to the consequences and she definitely deserved punishment. I'm turn on this aspect. She ends the book pretty happy with herself, but I wasn't.

Overall: Unlikable main character with a few funny turn of phrases and an almost redemption

Cover: It's very cute with the cherry lollipop.

My first reaction as I am reading this book is that it is a lot like Mean Girls. I don't know if that is because ABC Family is always talking about Mean Girls being on Sunday night ( I Think) or if this story is honestly a lot like Mean Girls. Then the more and more I read it the more and more I thought it. So it is a lot like Mean Girls with slightly different characters and a slightly different ending.

CG wants a fresh new start at her new school. I understand that and makes for the perfect story line for her to lie and be somebody who she isn't. This gets her in trouble. A lot like Lindsay Lohan, however Lindsay in Mean Girls had somebody encouraging her to do the things she does that is where it is a little different CG is her own enemy.

I also don't think it started with a dare like the title says. I think it started all back when she broke her best friends Alex's heart. She manages to in a couple of months become popular, hook up with the hottest guy, start a flirty conversations over the internet that could possibly ruin a teachers career and in then looses everything.

See what I mean about it being almost like mean girls. However, different things happen the plot is the same. The ending is different. Her family loves her again, she gets her birthday wish and two of her friends are her friends again. And there are still Cliques and the other two girls she befriends stays in the top. That is probably the only thing different.

However, I like CG and I did chuckle. I just feel like I have seen this story before a little to many times.
