Three very different girls who want the same thing: revenge, sweet revenge. And they won't stop until they've each had a taste.

Praise for Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian:

'This book has what every girl wants in a summer.' Sarah Dessen, Author of Along for the Ride.

'This book was as beautiful.' Goodreads


I decided to pick this book up after April Brooks stated that she absolutely adored the book. I actually thought that I wouldn't like it that much, but I turned out to absolutely love it! All three girls have completely different personalities, but I do feel like in the first chapter of each girl they all had the same voice. I didn't feel like I had changed to someone else's POV. After that it became more clear.

The writing style is so great and it makes it easy to connect with the characters. The book also had me in tears because I can connect with Mary having been bullied for years about my weight, and like her I always took it on the chin even though on the inside it hurt.

Did I feel like this book was any bit predictable?

Definitely! Of course this book was going to be predictable it's about getting revenge and I think most people knew that it wasn't going to end well. But the way the characters dealt with it was realistic and that's what you want: something that makes your heart flutter, but has that realistic element.

I would highly recommend this book. I gave it a 4/5 Stars and it thoroughly deserved it! I cannot wait for book 2: Fire with Fire.


'This book is like a rollercoaster. You're never going to know if you're going up or down.'
