Burn For Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

ISBN: 9781442440753
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 358

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 rumours, 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?

I absolutely loved reading Burn For Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian! Although Burn For Burn is written alternatively from the three perspectives of Kat, Mary and Lillia, it flowed quite well and there never seemed to be a lull in the storyline. I found the high school and the pact elements, which I really enjoyed reading, to be similar to those in Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. I especially liked how the reader learnt about each individual girl's life when they weren't with the other two girls. My favourite character was Kat, because of her stubbornness and her attitude. I love the cover of Burn For Burn as it represents all three of the main characters, Kat, Mary and Lillia, and how secretive they are within the book, as all three are sat close enough together to plot, but looking away from one another to see who is watching them.
