Paris Pan only just moved here, the woods are supercreepy, and she has enough weirdness to deal with in her own family.

Paris Pan only just moved here, the woods are supercreepy, and she has enough weirdness to deal with in her own family. Finding out a girl died mysteriously years ago while on the Dare-right near Paris's new house, no less-is bad enough, but the unmistakably ghostlike noises coming out of the broken-down shed at the edge of the Pan's property? Definite deal breaker. All Paris wants is to make friends, try to fit in, and not have to deal with a dead girl. But everyone has to take the Dare, and the new girl's turn is u. .

On the surface "Paris Pan Takes the Dare" is a simple story of a new kid in town trying to fit in and trying to survive a stupid local custom that proposes to put her into close personal contact with a vengeful ghost, a murderer,. But deeper down this is a story of how families grow apart and how to fix that, a cautionary tale of the importance of choosing wisely the friends you so desperately want.

I thought this book Paris Pan takes the Dare was one of the best books I have ever read, because it described how she felt when she had to keep moving due to the fact that her dad started his own company of building houses soo about evevery two to three months they had to move. Which is why they never put anything up on the walls because they say, putting nails in the wall makes it look used. Liu does a great job building ghost story suspense while also exploring 12-year-old boy-girl relationships, the complications of siblings who are all adrift in their new setting, immigrant parents working hard to provide their children with the life they think their kids want.

Twelve-year-old Chinese-American Paris Pan wants to fit in with the two popular girls in her seventh-grade class in Sugar Lake, Oklahoma, so she agrees to spend the night in the woods behind her house that is supposedly haunted by the ghost of a young girl.

For the first time Cynthea Liu takes flight without the restrictions (or the support) of an established series format. So how does she do?

Surprisingly creepy in parts, and freshly genuine throughout all, Paris Pan Takes the Dare is the perfect starter scary story for the 10 and up set, and a charming addition to any Coming Of Age collection.

Paris Pan Takes the Dare is really important to me because I feel a little like Paris, who sometimes feels like the outsider. I have a lot of siblings, so I can relate to some of her thoughts. I also love the ghost story elements, the twist and turns I was sucked into, and loved every minute of it. The book was so wonderful that.

You'll lie to your friends, eat a whole box of orage Creamsicles. You might even go as far as taking the Dare. Cynthea Liu is the publisher of Starts With Us and has her work published with Penguin Random, Disney, S&S and Scholastic.

Having just moved into town, Paris Pan isn't sure she wants to take part in the seventh-grade right of passage that involves spending a night alone in the scary woods, especially after she discovers that one girl died in the midst of doing the Dare a few years ago and then hears ghostly noises coming from an old shed near her home.

This is a good book for tweens. It was an interesting read--slightly less polished than most of the books I've read in this genre. It felt like the story could have been a little tighter and maybe pushed or pulled together (some characters and interactions that felt either flat or lacking in development), but the story had some wonderful elements that made it a worthwhile read.

Paris Pan's family stands out--they are neither dysfunctional, nor totally functionally. They're nicely flawed. I liked the sibling interactions; where they generally grate on each other's nerves, but when pushed into a corner, will come to the defense of one another. It had an authentic feel to it. I did think the siblings and their interactions (especially the older brother) could have been even more fleshed out, but it was still nice. The siblings are older and going through some awkward/difficult phases--questionable relationships with girls; attention seeking behavior. It's all very mild, but for a tween it would give a glimmer of a preview of years to come. I liked that aspect.

The parents are my favorite part of the novel and have the most heart. They're both immigrants who adore their children, don't quite understand their children, have extremely high expectations, and work themselves tired. They're written with care and a sense of humor. And nicely juxtaposed with Paris' and her siblings' self-involvement. It was a relateable dynamic.

Perhaps the least interesting portion is the plot device; the Dare itself. I never quite bought into Paris' friendship with her schoolmates or the town's tween obsession with The Dare. It just felt a bit off. But the author pulls it back together at the very end with a small reveal.

I hope Ms. Liu will write another novel about a similar family or re-visit the Pans. I enjoyed reading about them.

For the first time Cynthea Liu takes flight without the restrictions (or the support) of an established series format.

So how does she do?

Well, Writing for Children and Teens: A Crash Course (How to Write, Revise, and Publish a Kid's or Teen Book with Children's Book Publishers) will be studied by would-be children and teen book authors until the process changes all out of recognition, and The Great Call of China (S.A.S.S.) is and will remain one of the better books in the Students Across the Seven Seas series as long as that series stays in print.

"Paris Pan Takes the Dare" is a masterpiece.

Child readers will grow up and present battered copies to their children who will wonder what all the fuss is about,...

then present even more battered copies to their children.

If Penguin is ever stupid enough to let it go out of print, it will be snatched up by the likes of Purple House Press, reprint publisher of classic OOP children's books like The Mad Scientists' Club series, Night of the Moonjellies,The Shy Stegosaurus of Cricket Creek,The Space Child's Mother Goose,David and the Phoenix, and (of course) Mr. Pine's Purple House,...

and they'll even like the color.

On the surface "Paris Pan Takes the Dare" is a simple story of a new kid in town trying to fit in and trying to survive a stupid local custom that proposes to put her into close personal contact with a vengeful ghost, a murderer,...

or both.

But deeper down this is a story of how families grow apart and how to fix that, a cautionary tale of the importance of choosing wisely the friends you so desperately want.

This book has "timeless classic" written all over it, but that doesn't stop it from being uproariously funny and touchingly poignant.

Don't miss it,...

for your children's sake...

and yours.

Note: a surprising number of professional reviewers have made an issue out of the Pan parents' "broken English". To them I would say, notice the author's last name. Now, take a good look at the author's jacket photo. That's right, she's second generation Chinese American, and her parents on whom the Pans are based, like so many adult emigrants from non-English-speaking countries, didn't speak perfect English either, especially in the author's youth.

On the one hand there is merit in being more sensitive to the kind of careless ethnic stereotyping that makes reading old unexpurgated children's books today something of a cringe-fest.

On the other hand there is merit in avoiding the appearance of blithering idiocy.

Paris Pan (along with sister Verona, and brother Athens,) have been shuttled from house to house and town to town for so long, that ending up in a tiny school without only 97 people, several freaks, and a couple of mean girls as possible friends, Paris is just glad to be on the friend side, not the freak side. But when she gets embroiled in a Dare- to spend the night in the woods where Beth Conlon went missing 20 years before- Paris struggles to figure out how to get out of it, which friends are...more Paris Pan (along with sister Verona, and brother Athens,) have been shuttled from house to house and town to town for so long, that ending up in a tiny school without only 97 people, several freaks, and a couple of mean girls as possible friends, Paris is just glad to be on the friend side, not the freak side.

This is a fun and fast paced story. Paris Pan is a great character, she seems real, and it's interesting to read about her friendships. She struggles with her parents -- that part seems real too -- but there's a lot of love that helps them find their way. Paris has to make some important choices about her friends, crush, and what kind of person she wants to be. Very entertaining and enjoyable. I highly recommend this book!

Actually, this book is not super scary, but it does have the right ingredients of a thriller for young people mixed up with a little romance, some middle school politics, and a touching family drama.
Wrathmaster
