Louie and Willa are like a lesbian Romeo and Juliet. Louie comes from a posh background, money, brilliant family, the whole works. Willa lives over the bar that her mum runs, practices fencing, and wants nothing more than be a chef with her own restaurant. When they meet and fall in love, they are forced to overcome Louieâ€™s restrictive mother, hateful gossip, and a nearly fatal car crash. But unlike Romeo and Juliet, Dare Truth or Promise has a happier ending. Watch out for the language changes–New Zealand author Boock added a handy dandy glossary for those of you who arenâ€™t sure whatâ€œ fair dinkumâ€ means or whatâ€œ ranch slidersâ€ are. A very literary, angsty lesbian love story, where the points of view sometimes confused me (wasnâ€™t sure who was speaking, Louie or Willa) but the mature and descriptive writing always charmed me.
