Burn For Burn
Lillia, Mary, and Kat are three very different high school students who all desire revenge. Their pasts haunt them and they can only get their vengeance with each other's help...after all, who would suspect a teen queen, a rebel, and a shy new girl would be working together to take down Jar Island High's most popular students?
With shades of The Craft, Carrie, and even The Breakfast Club, this novel features so many qualities that keep me turning the pages. The girls' revenge feels justified because the bad characters in Burn for Burn are genuinely evil. It's always good when the reader wants to someone to be taken down, even better when there are multiple characters who need to be taught a lesson. I look forward to a day when I don't feel the need to point this out, but an Asian protagonist (who is featured on the cover) is always welcome.
This is the book that everyone will be clamoring to read, and then tapping their feet impatiently for the rest of the trilogy.
