Booklist Reviews 2012 September #1

Oh, sweet, sweet revenge. It's what three high-school girls—Lillia, Kat, and Mary—are after. Lillia wants to take down Alex, who is rumored to be hooking up with her little sister; Kat has her sights set on Rennie, an überpopular mean girl; and Mary, tormented by Reeve as an overweight 12-year-old, hopes karma is a real bitch. At first the revenge plots seem lackluster (Alex's sunscreen is swapped for Retin-A), but the acts heat up as Rennie and Reeve get their turns in the hot seat. With the exception of Alex, the cast is fairly unlikable, which may make it difficult for readers to care who comes out on top. Told from the girls' alternating viewpoints, Han and Vivian's novel reads like standard contemporary fare, so when hints of the supernatural are subtly introduced, the elements feel out of place, and the title comes to an abrupt end: "I just hope we get away with it." Perhaps all will come together in the next entry in the series, and fans of the Pretty Little Liars series will likely overlook any plot missteps and eat this up. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring

New student Mary, popular Lillia, and town rebel Kat seek revenge on three different classmates; the unlikely trio band together to take each one down. The girls' vengeance could be more developed, and eventually readers will have an uncomfortable feeling that they're taking things too far. The book's frustratingly abrupt ending falls smack in the middle of the (perplexing) climax.

PW Reviews 2012 July #5

Set on fictional Jar Island, this first collaboration between Han (We'll Always Have Summer) and Vivian (The List) follows three teenage girls bonded by a chilling quest for revenge. Popular Lillia is angry with her friend Alex, who spent the night with her 14-year-old sister after a party; tough girl Kat wants to sting her former friend Rennie, who has been spreading lies about her for years; and Mary, newly back on the island, is obsessed with the school quarterback, who humiliated her five years ago. Although they aren't friends, the girls promise to work together in all three acts of revenge. Each girl narrates, flashing back to memories of betrayal and describing their pranks, which escalate from distributing Alex's private writing to drugging another target. First in a planned trilogy, this fast-moving book offers an atmospheric setting and enough drama to captivate readers as they decide whether revenge is ever justified. The authors leave many unanswered questions, including the nature of a supernatural subplot that distracts somewhat from the book's focus on retribution, guilt, and status. Ages 14–up. Agent: Emily Van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (Sept.)
