really liked it

I think this is a cute premise. What girl who has just been cheated on doesn't want to see some karmic comeuppance kick her ex in the butt? It's something everyone can relate to, that helpless feeling when someone does you wrong and you can't believe they are just going to get away with it and be happy. This is a cute plot, and I'm curious about the different things that Maddy is going to do to try to get karma to take care of her ex-bf, and then how it is going to turn around on her. It seems like there is a lot of potential for fun in this one. It reminds me a bit of The Lonely Hearts Club, which was a very cute and fun read
Here's the back of the book =
Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. It’s that mysterious, powerful force that brings harmony to the universe. You know—do good things and you will be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what’s coming to you. A sort of cosmic balancing act. But when Mason Brooks, Maddy’s boyfriend of two years, gets caught tongue-wrestling with Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them—except that they wind up the hot new couple of Colonial High School, it seems like Karma has officially left Maddy in the lurch.

That’s why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade, decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization whose sole purpose is to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind. Whether they’re modifying Heather Campbell’s acne cream as part of “Operation Butterface,” or righting a few wrongs when it comes to Angie and Jade’s own slimy exes, they know they’re just doing what Karma should have done in the first place. They’re taking care of one another.

Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe. Because it turns out, when you mess with Karma, Karma messes back. Now Maddy must find a way to balance her life for good, even as everything around her seems to be toppling to the ground
