One Night That Changes Everythingby Lauren Barnholdt
Synopses & Reviews
A hilarious novel about a teen who must do everything on her (embarrassing) list of Â€œthings I'm too scared to doÂ€ list in only one night.
"In Barnholdt's (Two-way Street) silly rom-com, set over the course of one wild night, high school junior Eliza loses her secret notebook, where for years she's collected lists of everything she's afraid of doing. A group of notorious mean boys finds it, and they send Eliza on a night out where she's forced to live out her fears--threatening to publish the journal online if she doesn't comply. While the fear journal makes an enticing (if not entirely believable) plot device, the dares themselves are generally so banal--asking a gorgeous jerk to dance at a club, singing karaoke, kissing another jerk at a party, posting a bikini picture online--that there's no real opportunity for Eliza to achieve any significant emotional growth. A lack of character development may further deflate readers' emotional investment in Eliza's drama, as well as the series of events that is supposed to shepherd her back into the arms of her ex-boyfriend, who both broke her heart and played a role in her notebook's going missing in the first place. Ages 14 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
After learning her ex-boyfriend Cooper only dated her on a dare, Eliza Sellman makes awful allegations about him online. In retaliation, Cooper steals the notebook she writes all of her fears and goals in, and demands she do everything on her secret list--in one night.
