Review: Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian


Lillia has never had any problems dealing with boys who like her. Not until this summer, when one went too far. No way will she let the same thing happen to her little sister.

Kat is tired of the rumours, the insults, the cruel jokes. It all goes back to one person– her ex-best friend– and she's ready to make her pay.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she's not the same girl anymore. And she's ready to prove it to him.

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


My thoughts 

An interesting enough read following 3 teenage girls as they take revenge on their peers.

I enjoyed the setting of the book a lot and loved the small community feel of it. I liked getting to know the three main characters and getting under the skin of why they were doing the things they were doing. I particularly enjoyed Mary's story and liked her the most out of the three girls and got where she was coming from which was necessarily the case the other girls.

The story ends on a bit of a cliff hanger which left me wanting to know more about what happened next.

Certainly entertaining enough for me to want to read the next book in the series

Ooh! This appeals to my slightly evil streak (of course this only exists when I read and not in real life *revenge mwahahaha* ahem). Fab review :D
I do love these stories of revenge and am looking forward to giving this one a go!
Good to know. Thanks!
