When sweet revenge turns sour… Book two of a trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian.

Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.

Not even close.

For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they

Aj the Ravenous Reader
"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. a burn for a burn. a life for a life. that's how all this got started and that's how it's going to end."

Dayum! That ending triggered shivers all over my arms and neck. This revenge game has completely gone out of hand and people are literally getting hurt. Lives are put at stake and now, we’re also talking about ghosts? Like actual ghosts! Gah! I don’t know what to say really, except that this series is like a fat worm used as bait for the clueless,

Updates below!

After reading the last page of Burn for Burn, I thought. Wait. That's it?! and frantically flipped the pages to make sure I hadn't missed anything:

Needless to say, thankfully, there's a sequel. Looking forward to it!

Update 3/21/2014
WOW. So, Fire with Fire finally came out and provided some closure...until it didn't. The plot twist about Mary was mind-blowing, and the end left me terrified to see what Jenny and Siobhan have planned for these infuriatingly rash characters in the next

Wow, I'm still panting a little bit after that ending. But I'll get to that later.

So Fire with Fire picks up not long after the big Homecoming Dance disaster. The girls got away with what they did but their plan went wrong because Reeve is now injured. And then of course, there's Mary, who knows that there's something wrong with her and that she had something to do with what happened at the dance, but is trying her best to deny it and hides it from the other girls. But Mary is also still hop

A great follow up to the first installment in this series of Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian, reading Fire with Fire is like watching a chick-lit, mystery, and paranormal movie. Kat, Lillia and Mary's plans on getting revenge should be petty stuff only, however, things getting haywire when people started getting hurt and being killed.

The ending is also quite surprising because I did not imagine what Mary really is; I only assumed that there's something mysterious about her character, but I didn't

This was freaking AMAZEBALLS. Like, heck, I found a new favorite character – that itself is surprising. I’m not much of a character driven reader as a plot-driven one, but WOW THIS BOOK HAD THEM BOTH.

Picking up a week later after the events in Burn for Burn, we see the trio – Kat, Lillia, Mary – are still hanging out with each other (which gives me all the feels!), unbeknownst to Lillia’s popular gang of friends. To rid Mary off her grief and heartbreak, they decide that Reeve needs to get aveng

OH. EM. GEE.

Honestly I loved the first book in this series but I wasn't sure where the story was gong to go from there and I wasn't expecting this AT ALL! The twist at the end was so unbelievably unexpected to me, my jaw hit the floor! I LOVE this story and I need the next book! Im sp back and forth on all of these characters, I have love hate relationships with almost all of them because they all seem to do messed up stuff but they also all have redeeming qualities.

4/5 Stars!


When I finished reading Burn for Burn, I immediately jump for the second book Fire with Fire, the truth is that I couldn't wait to know what was going to happen, after that end of the first book, I had so many questions and so many feelings that I felt that without doubts I had to continue with this series.

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. HOLY PLOT TWIST. I DID NOT SEE THIS COMING!!!!!!!

Ok...ok...I'm trying to calm myself down.
I didn't like this book quite as much as the first one, mainly because all of the characters (besides Kat) were getting on my nerves pretty badly. Especially Lillia. Also, as you can see from my updates, I was really annoyed with certain things, like the fact that the word "slut" is thrown around so much and so carelessly. Still, this was a super-fast-paced

Overall Thoughts
All I gotta say it that this was such a fun and addictive series! Not to mention just totally off the charts with insanity. It really ended up going somewhere completely weird and unexpected but totally awesome. The second book was by far my favorite cause it had the most twist and turns. And everything leading up to it was just pure fun high school drama and who doesn't enjoy that? lol Really enjoyed this series. Seriously, read it.

Until Next Time,

Thank you Simon and Schuster Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review.

Burn For Burn was fun. Fire With Fire was another story. Much more complex with depth and more of a realistic backbone, the sequel to Burn For Burn surprised me entirely. If you were not the greatest fan of Burn For Burn, I believe that this one is still worth trying because it was a huge improvement. Sweet revenge turns sour...

Burn for Burn was a book which I really adored last year; it was a fun contemporary with a different twist. I don’t know what I was expecting going into Fire with Fire, but it wasn’t this. Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian literally came out all guns blazing with this book. It was a story of three different girls coming together, but in particular the stories of Lillia and Kat really struck a chord with me.

I instantly connected with Kat and Lillia’s character in Burn for Burn, so I couldn’t wait to s

Gosh, that cliffhanger.

I went into this remembering close to nothing of Burn for Burn. But that's not a problem, because this book does a great job of reminding you of what happened previously.

I really liked the characters because it's really easy to distinguish between them. So even though it's narrated from three people, it's not confusing. The side characters are great too, especially Alex.

The ending leaves you with a ton of questions. Like, what whaaaat? Things add up and then they don't.

Words cannot convey how much I enjoyed this book. Burn for Burn was a bit of a bummer for me but Jenny Han and Siobhan turned my opinion right around with this. WOW. Prepare to be amazed and rendered speechless with their stroke-inducing plot twist!!!!

That ending was unacceptable. It left on such a huge cliffhanger.
This book was even better than the first one, and I adored the first one.

Oh. My. God.

What on earth did I just read?

First of all, I'd have to say that I'm not a fan of contemporary books and don't read much of that genre. But this book right here just swept me off my feet! Yes, it's just that good.

Spoilers Ahead

I'm sure we all want a taste of revenge, especially to those who once hurt us the most. And that's exactly what Lilia, Kat and Mary are after, sweet revenge. After their little avenge-gone-wrong at homecoming, the girls decided to rest the matter. But what of R

MIND OFFICIALLY BLOWN!
Lillia is defiantly my favorite character in the story for sure, has been from the start. at the beginning I really hope that Reeve and Mary would end up together even after everything they've been through (which would be crazy) But I haven't ever seen that kind of plot line before (eleamentry school bully falls in love with victim in high school, etc.) But it isn't going that way I'm okay with it! Reeve is actually my favorite character (then Lillia) I fee
