Enter IfYou Dare By: Alyson Larrabee
Enter If You Dare, was by far one of the best books I’ve ever read! It has such an amazing plot that will keep you reading for sure! I highly recommend it for people who love mystery novels with a love story mixed in too.
Annabelle Blake has a not-so-secret admirer, Wyatt Silver: the boy every girl in school loves, that is except Annabelle. After constant begging, though, Wyatt tricks Annabelle into going on a “date” with him. During this “date” he wants to view the movie Annabelle made with her friend Meg about the ghost stories surrounding Eastfield (the town they live in). (Don’t read beyond this point if you want to be surprised when you read the whole book.) See, Wyatt isn’t like other boys; he is an amateur medium and thinks Annabelle may have a ghost on her hands. During the investigation, they uncover that Annabelle does in fact have a ghost stalking her. They decide that they need to find out who he is and where he came from. They think his name is Daniel, a patient at Wild Wood Psychiatric Hospital. She and Wyatt take a trip to the hospital where Daniel died. Halfway through their visit “Daniel” takes possession of Wyatt’s body and almost scares the life out of Annabelle. Then, after further investigation, they soon discover that Daniel didn’t die the way the doctors at the hospital said he died in the official report. He was murdered and Annabelle mentions this to an elderly nurse who used to work at Wild Wood, but the old lady denies everything. After Annabelle and Wyatt leave, she calls the murderer to tell him about Annabelle’s questions and before they know it, Annabelle’s his new target! Throughout the book Annabelle and Wyatt have to hunt ghosts, solve a twenty year old murder and escape a criminal; all while dealing with their normal high school life.
Enter If You Dare is a book of many features: ghost story, young adult romance and thriller. Which means many people will enjoy this book like I did. Overall I wouldn’t change a thing. I would honestly rate this book five stars! Alyson Larrabee is an amazing author and I cannot wait to read the sequel, Her Evil Ways.
