A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly …

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy: sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating—Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they’re directed to a secret location with five other players for the grand prize round. Suddenly they’re playing all-or-nothing—with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?

With NERVE, debut author Jeanne Ryan delivers an intensely gripping suspense thriller perfect for fans of The Hunger Games.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ryan’s story is thought-provoking and unsettling…The ending goes off with a bang and a twist.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Teens will find themselves drawn in by the story’s possibilities, and unNERVEd by its outcome. Give this to Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games fans.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Ryan has created a credible game, as well as a realistic character and narrator in Vee…Readers will likely remain tightly keyed into questions about what is going to happen to Vee herself, who is reminiscent of Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl translated into an American high-school girl.”


  • “The commentary on today’s life-as-public-spectacle society is…sound. The pacing is relentless, and readers will find themselves flipping madly to the very last page.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “An original, page-turning novel that offers a slice of pop culture that gives a whole new meaning to the trendy, reality-television genre.”
