Review of Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Burn for Burn is a fast-moving story about three very different girls out for revenge. Lillia has always been a pretty, popular girl with no boy troubles. But when one goes too far, Lillia will never let the same thing happen to her little sister who seems determined to live Lillia’s life. Kat has had the insults, rumours and jokes for a long time. And all because of one person – her ex best friend. Mary left the island because of a boy but now she’s not the same girl anymore and she can finally prove it.

All three girls are drawn together by a mutual desire for revenge. They were hurt and they want to hurt those people right back.

Burn for Burn started off a little on the slow side for me but once it picked up, wow! I could barely put it down. It was intriguing, funny, painful and emotional to read. Very reminiscent of Mean Girls but with more of an edge. And sadly, no Karen.

I felt for each and every one of these girls and was sorry for what happened to them. This story is full of drama and action, and I for one can’t wait for the sequel.
