Genre: YA Contemporary
This book is the first book in a trilogy. I kind of think of it as a cross between Mean Girls and Pretty Little Liars. It takes place on the privileged and affluent Jar Island. The story is told from three POVs: Lillia, Kat, and Mary. The three of them are dealing with different kinds of drama, but they all have one thing in common: seeking revenge. The three of them plot out their plans by meeting in secretive places in the super early morning. Lillia is put in a bad place, as all of the trio’s targets are in her group of friends.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story. It kept me engaged and entertained. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending, since I was expecting it to be happy and neatly packaged. Lillia’s moral dilemma made the story so interesting and exciting. I’m pretty sure I gasped several times while reading it.
I don’t have much negative feedback about the book. I was somewhat confused with the characters’ backstories, but I don’t think it really affected the plot. I feel like Mary’s situation could have been better explained, as I couldn’t keep the schools straight.
I finished Burn for Burn relatively quickly. It was an easy and fun read, and I think I will probably continue with the series at some point. I do have a HUGE number of books on my TBR (around 700,) that I will probably not get to, but I may move this series up.
I give this book a(n): A-/B+
Yeah, I can do that. This is my blog, and I’m too lazy to work through my indecision.
