Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & 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.

I'm not sure what took me so long to pick up this book, especially since I've always been a fan of Siobhan Vivian, but I am definitely glad that I finally did. Burn for Burn is a book that could have been another one of those beachy, summer dramas with all of the glamour, guys, and gossip, and while all of those elements are present—and done well, I should note—Han and Vivian go beyond all of that to create a story that is suspenseful and full of surprises. With its sharp, quick plot and a great cast of characters, Burn for Burn is a fantastic read to satisfy anyone's guilty pleasure cravings.

Rating: 4.5

I am glad to see a good review for this. I haven't read it, though I love the authors, the premise reminded me a PLL type story.

I've been dying to get my hands on this book for so long! I love Jenny Han, but I've just found this book so difficult to lay my hands on! Given that I've not heard much about it either, it sort of fell off my radar. After reading your review, however, I think I'll have to have another hunt for this one!
