A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating–Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they’re directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they’re playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?

Why I can’t wait: Oh God, I don’t even know. I’ve seen this one someone’s blog and it caught my attention right away. It definitely sounds like something I’d enjoy. Sounds like a gripping story! And what a fantastic cover!!

What are you guys waiting on this week? Make sure to leave me a comment with a link to your own post above so that I can visit you back :)

  7. Saw this one last week, I think, and it sounds awesome. I liked Little Brother by Cory Doctorow (even though I thought I wouldn’t), so I’m very intriqued by this one. Great pick!
