Lies or Dare


It is the first day at a new Secondary School for 15 year old Lily and her sister, 11 year old Rose.


Will they make friends?


Desperate to fit in, Lily joins ‘The Dareists’, an intimidating gang of teenage girls. Soon she is getting strange text messages from someone called Ella.


’. . . don’t trust them, they are evil . . .’


But who is Ella, and what does the warning mean?
