Summary (from Goodreads):
“BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY…
THEY GET EVEN.
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.”
I cannot even tell you how much I loved this book. It reminded me a lot of Elizabeth Miles’ Envy series and it reminded Kathy of The Craft. I can see that, too, and as much as I loved both of those things, Burn For Burn is so much better.
(Which is no surprise, because I love Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian.)
I love books that deal with ethical quandaries and this book made me think about the difference between justice and vengeance. Mary, Lillia and Kat are definitely walking the line for most of the book and by the end, I think they definitely cross it.
Even so, I am still Team Wronged Girls. ;)
There will be another book next year sometime (and I hope it’s at BEA because I can’t wait to see what happens next).
