Tracy Sharp is a new author for me so I went into this story not knowing what to expect. I am also new to the kindle worlds format. I need not have worried. Ms. Sharp did a great job.
Dean's struggle to bounce back from an injury was admirable. His quest to make the most of his second chance and help others was truly inspiring. Leslie was a little harder to get a read on in the beginning, but as the story went on I warmed up to her a little bit more.
Wish to Dare is a story about characters who are human and are learning to live with limitations and consequences within the game of life. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from this author and series.
