Burn for Burn by Jenny Han

Pages: 358
Goodreads rating: 3.86/ 5 stars
My rating: 5/5 stars
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Summary (goodreads):

Postcard-perfect Jar Island is the kind of place where nobody locks their doors at night, where parents can sleep easy, knowing their daughters are tucked away safe and sound in their beds. 

But bad things can happen, even to good girls . . . and sometimes, the only way to make things right is to do something wrong. 

Lillia used to trust boys, but not anymore. Not after what happened this summer. And she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her little sister from the same fate. 

Kat is over the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes made at her expense. It all goes back to one person--her ex-best friend. Someone needs to teach her a lesson, and, with Lillia and Mary behind her, Kat feels up to the task.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now that she’s got friends who have her back, he's going to be in big trouble.

Three very different girls who come together to make things right. Will they go too far?

My review:

One thing is for sure:

I'm going to get the sequel ASAP and finish this trilogy.

I had a reading slump at first, but I tried to pick this up again and I am impressed on how its story goes, quite cliche but still an enjoyable read. It was an easy read and indeed fast paced. I absolutely love it! 

Karma is a bitch. 

This book is all about friendship and revenge. Three girls with different pasts & personalities bonded to plot their own revenge to those people who hurt their feelings. It seems a bit childish but I did enjoyed their pranks. Good girls gone bad (except for Kat, because she's already a kick-ass one). Out of the three, I think Mary stood out the most. Her story was a huge impact and quite sad that you just want to hug her for real. 

I'm also a fan of Kat, whom I considered the strongest and the bitchiest. Her personality is really striking and she is the motivator in the group. I loved her for that. I love Lillia, for being a protective sister and being the smartest but she needs to be more confident about herself that she isn't afraid to face her fears. 

What a good start. I can't wait to see more. :)
