Burn For Burn - Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Burn for Burn

Hardcover368 pages
Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers


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, May 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'll start of by admitting that, yes, I am a huge fan of Jenny Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty books. When I got my copy of B4B in the mail I was a bit excited, but figured it wouldn't even come close to TSITP.
So, it's been proven that I'm pretty much a dodo.
Burn For Burn has rightfully earned its spot on my Top 10 Reads of 2012 list, as of now.
This review will have to be light since the books release date is still so far, but I'll try my best to justify it.
At a first glance, this book looks like your typical Girl-Wants-Revenge-Girl-Gets-Revenge kind of book, but there's so much more to it than that.
The best way I can think to describe Burn For Burn is a mash up of Mean Girls and John Tucker Must Die, infused with the perfect dose of romance, suspense, action, and humor. This is a book with surprisingly a lot of depth to it, and I'm plenty grateful to Simon and Schuster for sending me a copy.

I know not many of you are willing to wait,  so for my extended absence I'm making it up to you all by giving away my ARC. :)

For the rest of you, guess my super-mini review will have to do. ;D
