………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

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?

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Burn for Burn is a great start to a a trilogy related to real life teenage situations.

This book is told from three main teenagers perspectives, Kat, Lillia, and Mary, as you explore their lives through three different pairs of eyes.

Kat was just so bad-ass and was ready to get back at anyone who treated her like the dumps. For all those past years, she’s been putting up with the horrible treatment she got from school. Until she couldn’t take it anymore did she have a great idea in mind.

Lillia has a sweet heart she could even handle being treated badly. However, never will she allow the same to happen to her little sister. A revenge not for herself but for her little sister, Lillia was just being a caring, open-minded older sister, willing to do anything to protect her sister.

Mary used to be the more quite, shy type. Once upon a time, an innocent, young girl went to school. Until one day, she came home in despair, because of this one person, never again was she treated fairly. Mary finally takes a step forward and moves back to the island, with a revenge to get back at that person, and what it feels to mess with a girl.

Each girl had a revenge plotted in mind, but for it to work, they needed each other. Which is why when Kat, Lillia, and Mary joined hands and agreed to help each other did they plot out their plans for their revenge. Until it was too late did they wonder if maybe they have gone a bit too far.

I really did enjoy this book, having to read from each characters point of view, which made the plot even more interesting.

The communication between the three girls were always exciting to read, as the plans they came up were unexpected.

I feel that by joining hands to create revenges, may have even lead to a spark of friendship starting to build up.

Overall, I enjoyed having to read a book I was able to easily connect and relate to my life, which I’m pretty sure any girl out there who reads this book can as well.
I really can’t wait to read Fire with Fire, especially with that ending in Burn for Burn.
