REVIEW : Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

 Synopsis

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?




Review

This book really intrigued me and I was totally looking forward to read it and now I have (:
And I actually really enjoyed it. I think it's maybe not one of my favorites but it was well written and the story line was great.

I liked it how you can see the three girls seeing the same scene in the differnet point of views and I think it was really entertaining (:
The protagonists were great. I loved how their social lives were involved in each others.
I have no favorite of these three and I think each is in their way gorgeous.

The only thing I don't like is that cliff-hanger at the end !

But like I already said I enjoyed it but didn't love it as I love for example The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare so I gave this book 







Have you read it ?
If so, did you like it or not, and why ?

  1. I also really enjoyed this book! The only issue for me was that the writing seemed a bit simplistic at times, as if the authors were writing down to their audience if that makes any sense. Here's my review if you were interested: http://thebookcookies.blogspot.com/2014/07/burn-for-burn-by-jenny-han-and-siobhan.html
