    Thoroughly enjoyed this story that explores friendship, identity, change, and the kind of mystery any kids would be over the moon to try and solve over a summer. And I especially enjoyed the ending that combines the feelings of being in the moment while preserving a memory at the same time. "Somebody caresSomebody always cares.""I also realize something else. That there are people like me out there in the world."

    Spot on middle grade voice. Kids are going to relate to everything that happens to these characters. Enjoyed the mystery too!

    "We three, best friends for life, on our last and best summer together. We dare."Since first grade, it's always been Birdie, Rose and Ally. Three very different girls with a strong friendship. Rose, originally from England, is in a battle with her mother over the violin. Rose has to practice every day and she's really starting to hate it.

    I loved Middleton's first book, THE INFINITY YEAR OF AVALON JAMES, so I was so excited to read OPEN IF YOU DARE. And it sure didn't disappoint! Once again, Middleton captures a voice that feels so authentically MG and overlays it onto a wonderful story. Birdie and her two best friends, Rose and Ally, immediately won my heart and I loved their sweet and respectful relationships. I also loved that each girl was such a distinct personality and character, but the trio's friendship seemed so natural [...]

    Birdie finds a long-buried box that has "Open if you dare" written on its lid. Birdie and her best friends want to open it. Is their bad luck coming from the box they opened? I loved that each girl had a different personality. This story was filled with mystery, friendship, and family. I couldn't stop reading this book because I wanted to see what was going to happen. I recommend this book for grades 4-6. With this book I would create a lesson on friendship. I would also create a lesson on famil [...]

    I enjoyed Dana Middleton’s debut book, THE INFINITY YEAR OF AVALON JAMES, so I was very interested when I heard she had another book publishing soon. The second I read the blurb on the back of OPEN IF YOU DARE, I was hooked! Like Birdie Adams didn’t have enough problems this summer. But Birdie’s Birdie. And if a long-buried box has “Open if you dare” written on its lid, then Birdie and her best friends, Ally and Rose, are going to open it. And now, along with everything else that’s g [...]

    Open If You Dare my Dana Middleton was an excellent story filled with mystery, friendship, family and the challenges of being a tween girl. This was a book I couldn't put down. I wanted to know how the mystery of Girl Detective would end. The deep bonds of friendship between Rose, Ally and Birdie were wonderful to follow. The strength of the individual girls as well as how they communicated as friends was beautiful. The struggles of figuring out who you are as an individual, a daughter, a sister [...]

    The was a sweet mg novel about how things change as children grow up. I liked the diversity within the characters, both the children and adults. In addition, the mystery was interesting. I did not like the times Birdie let Zora get hurt because she was too busy worrying about herself and her friends. Thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the chance to be an early reader in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    I loved this book so much. A mystery, a coming of age story, a friendship story - this book has it all. I stayed up late turning pages, desperate to see how it was going to end. This book is wonderful.

    A story of growing up and dealing with change. Perfect for early middle grade readers. A great mystery!

    Open If You Dare begins with a mysterious box found by three best friends who live in Georgia.

It’s easy to enter into Bird’s world, a supportive family, and best friend’s who are thick as thieves: the pragmatic Rose, an [...]
