I received an ARC of this book.*

It pains me to say this (seriously), but I was disappointed in this book.

I adore Jenny Han and I like Siobhan Vivian's books well enough so I was sure BURN FOR BURN would be a hit. The premise of the book is fantastic and it's got great characters, but I felt like the acts of revenge were not as impactful as I would've imagined. (I imagined bigger stakes and acts). Also, there is not a strong romantic subplot--which may be the point--but there are definitely hints of future romantic relationships between the characters (Lind and Alex or Kat &Alex, etc) but I wasn't very vested in those. Maybe because the love interests were decent, but not remarkable boys like in The Summer Series. My final issue with the book is the supernatural element that's been hinted at.

There are 2 books left in the series, but I truly feel, so far, that this book would have been fine as realist fiction.
