Book Review – Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

Burn for Burn #1

Burn for Burn #1

‘Postcard-perfect Jar Island is the kind of place where nobody locks their doors at night, where parents can sleep easy, knowing their daughters are tucked away safe and sound in their beds. 
But bad things can happen, even to good girls . . . and sometimes, the only way to make things right is to do something wrong. 
Lillia used to trust boys, but not anymore. Not after what happened this summer. And she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her little sister from the same fate. 
Kat is over the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes made at her expense. It all goes back to one person–her ex-best friend. Someone needs to teach her a lesson, and, with Lillia and Mary behind her, Kat feels up to the task.
Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now that she’s got friends who have her back, he’s going to be in big trouble.
Three very different girls who come together to make things right. Will they go too far?’ (Goodreads) (358 pages, 18th september 2012, Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers)

I found this beautiful site named: pulseit.com… and I love it! It’s this amazing site which puts 1 ebook online a week. And this week it its  Burn for Burn and I’ve been meaning to read this book since it came out, but I didn’t have any money to buy it next to all the other books I wanted to buy as well. So, when I saw this, I couldn’t believe my luck. And I liked this book a lot.

The characters were all likable, even if I preferred reading about one of them the most. I thought Kat was the most interesting. The others were sometimes whinny but, Lillia surprised me the most in the end. Their worlds collide and fall apart. But they still go through with everything which is remarkable but gives a lot away about their personalities.

The story was compelling and once I started reading I couldn’t really stop. I finished this book really fast because it was an easy read but also so entertaining. An ideal book to read in this summer. I will definitely read the next book, because I need to know what happens to them after the ending of this book. I do have this feeling that this book could have perfectly been a standalone book if they would have made it a bit bigger and written an end to it, but I’ll have to read the second (and third?) one to know for sure.

3,5 out of 5 stars.
