This is a sad, but necessary story about two boys and the foolishness of both accepting a dare and being the one dareing. I bought this for my preteen/early teen boys to help them to combat that male-ish pride that shows up at about this age. I'm sorry to say....but it's that "thing" in men that gets them accused of being "stupid-thing doers.
The story has a surreal ending that is not expected from childrens' books. And the author does an incredible job of taking you through the emotions of the surviving boy, his fear, and his guilt.
I recommend this book for boys, girls, and for parents awareness.
