Burn for Burn

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:
Wow. It took me FOREVER to get through this book!! It wasn't bad by any means, but it was just kind of boring. While it is full of drama, the first 100 or so pages were extremely slow. I kept having to push myself to keep reading.

Once I got past the first part of the book, things did get more interesting. It finally made sense how all of the characters came together, and why they were related. I liked how each chapter was from a different girl's point of view. It let us know a lot more about each character. It was confusing at first though, when we didn't know who these people are.

This was a story full of emotions, which makes sense since it is all about revenge. Some of the reasons why the girls wanted revenge were really heartbreaking. Others were a little more shallow. All in all, everyone had their own reason, and it meant something to them. I liked learning the true reasons behind the wanted revenge for each person.

The ending of Burn for Burn was a little disappointing. Yes, there is a cliffhanger there. However, I don't feel like there was any kind of closure at all at the end of the book. It was just kind of left wide open. While I didn't necessarily love this book, I do want to read the next book in the series. I am interested to know what happens to these characters.

3 stars
I received this book for free from arcycling in return for an honest review.
