foul is fair

Wow. What the heck did I just read?? Violent, dark, twisty and an utter guilty pleasure, this book is Mean Girls, Heathers and Kill Bill all rolled into one.

Every girl that has been wronged by a boy has probably had a deep secret wish to exact revenge, nay vengeance, against that boy. The more violent the better. This book is every wronged girls fantasy imagined.

Elle and her friends Mads, Jenny, and Summer are at the top of their social circle. They’ve got it all and everyone wants to be them. To celebrate Elle’s sixteenth birthday, the girls crash a party at St. Andrew’s Prep. That school has a group of golden boys at the top of their social circle, and they have a cruel tradition that they exact on unsuspecting girls. When the golden boys target Elle as their next victim, they picked the wrong girl.

Elle and her friends are determined to get vengeance. Elle transfers to St. Andrews Prep and insinuates herself into the golden boy’s circle by cozying up to an ambitious boy named Mack. Once done, Elle and her coven get to work on destroying every boy responsible for Elle’s pain. One.By.One.

This book is told in short chapters and is a quick and easy read. The story is fast-paced and keeps the reader’s attention. Obviously the reader has to suspend belief when reading this book, but it’s a fun fantasy ride. This book isn’t for everyone. It’s violent and twisty and glorifies exacting deadly vengeance on teenagers. But, if you’re up for it, I recommend you reading this book.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
