I'm not sure exactly where to begin with this book, because I absolutely loved every bit of it. What I thought was going to be a summer romance, quickly turned into a summer of revenge in the best possible way. Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian have really out done themselves with Burn For Burn . It was such an incredible and delightful, albiet scheming read from the start up until the end. It wasn't perfect, but it was wonderfully realistic and a bit rough around the edges in other aspects.

Kat is this fiesty girl from the wrong side of town who doesn't exactly care what people think of her. Mary is the one who's been hurt probably the most out of the three of them, and Lillia is just amazing any way you look at it. All of the girls were extremely fun to get to know and discover new things about. I was very happy to see the history fleshed out between Lillia and Kat and the return of their friendship re-instated by a little bout of sweet revenge. The three sort of became the most unlikely besties that were so much fun to read about. I definitely got a kick out of all of their schemes and motives behind why they wanted their revenge and who it would be exacted upon.

The writing style was very laid back and easy going, the book was just so much fun, and the character's were definitely interesting. It turned out to be a great read, that ended on such a cliff-hanger that I'm totally left craving more. I cannot wait until the next book in the series come out, because I'll definitely have a copy in my hands. There was some amazing mystery wafting around the atmostphere that lent itself well to the character growth, background, and integrated itself well into the story keeping me hooked and excited to read what was going to happen next. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who enjoys contemporary young adult fiction for sure. It would definitely make a worth read!
