Goodreads Synopsis:

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 Thoughts:

Burn For Burn was an amazing read. This was a one sitting read for me. I loved how it was told in three different point of views. It made the book more dynamic and it also helped to understand each girls issues more clearly.

I loved the concept of them getting back at the people who have taunted them or who have made their lives that much more diffcult. Like high school isn't hard enough right?

But what happens when you realize that not everything is the way you thought it was? What happens if the people you were getting back at didn't do what you thought they did? But how far is too far? 

This was one of those reads that is entertaining but also makes you think. I am definitely a fan of Jenny Han and Siohban Vivian. Their pairing made this book all that more enjoyable.

The relationships and friendships that stem out of this unlikely mashup of girls coming together to get back at their tormenters will bring these girls closer than they ever thought possible. Even if they didn't want to be.

But what happens next? I cannot wait for the story to continue! I thoroughly enjoyed Burn for Burn!
