This is a book about life in boarding school. Elizabeth Norah Chapman is going to Ashdown Academy, a boarding school where boys are forbidden, for the school year. As soon as Eliza meets Helen, a sneaky, mischievous girl,the story takes off. Before I read this book, I thought boarding schools were only for boarders. When I read "The Daring Game", I thought, "What? You can go to a boarding school without boarding? That's outrageous!" But this book was so good, it only took me three days to finish. I definitely recommend this book for girls interested in boarding school.
After buying and enjoying "The Guests of War Trilogy" first, I went out and bought The Daring Game without hesitation when my family was vacationing on the Gulf Islands last month. I was so lucky that I got the an autographed one. Basically the whole story is about 12 year old seventh grade student named Elizabeth Norah Chapman who got her with after desperatly wanting to attend a boarding school after reading many books about children her own age and younger who attend one. Eliza excepts a normal peaceful school but those thoughts crumble after her roommate Helen Beauchamp starts the daring game involving her other roommates, Pam, Carrie, and Jean a.k.a. Eliza Doolittle(Eliza), P.J.(Pam), Turps(Carrie), and Scotty(Jean). Pearson's firt novel had me enthralled and I would recommend this to anybody who likes nonviolent books and also boks about school and getting into serious trouble. Excellent!:)
Theis book was so good. It's about a girl named Eliza who goes away to boarding school for a year and becomes friends with a mischeviouse, unpredictable girl in her dorm. And it is they who start the daring game. This book was so good. I think you should read it.
I got this book for Christmas when I was 11. I loved it then and I love it now, 4 years later! This book is an easy read when you don't feel like something overly deep and complex. Good characters, good plot, and an interesting and informative account of something most of us have never experienced.

For something more thought-provoking about the same topic, try Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld.
This book is the worst i've ever read. It moves much too slow and doesn't live up to its title, The Daring Game. It should have more 'dares' if you ask me. It only has around three dares.

The Daring Game does , though , have a sensible problem and characters.
deadly claw
This book is about Eliza Chapman and her life at boarding school. You will understand her emotions as she meets new friends, breaks the rules and when she is just plain miserable. When she plays a secret game with Carrie, Helen, Pam and Jean her brave part comes out and when she meets new teacher the shy part comes out. The only question I have about this book is, when will there be a sequel???
