White Lies, Black Dare

Written by Joanna Nadin

White Lies, Black Dare Synopsis

From the author of JOE ALL ALONE - now a major CBBC series. A compelling story for 10+ readers about falling in with the wrong crowd, and standing up for what you believe in. How far would you go to fit in? When I think of all the people I ever wanted to be, I'm pretty sure this isn't one of them... Asha Wright has it all - a barrister mum, a place at a private school, and big dreams of a life where she's a real Somebody. But when her mum gets cancer, Asha's fairytale fades and she finds herself back in Peckham, at a tough new school with new teachers, new kids . . . and Angel Jones, queen bee. Angel is everything Asha wants to be - beautiful, brash and, above all, brave. But being one of the gang comes at a cost, and Asha is forced to play a dangerous game of Truth or Dare. Where will it end?

White Lies, Black Dare Press Reviews

This is an insightful, gripping, character-driven novel about peer pressure and the conflict between wanting to fit in and standing up for yourself ... As the novel builds to a tense, emotional climax, you'll be on the edge of your seat willing Asha to do the right thing. -- Joanne Owen * LoveReading4Kids *
