Burn for Burn written by: Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Oh how I love myself a dramatic, girlie, contemporary fiction novel! Burn for Burn was a fabulous addition to my love of drama-filled high school romances and adventures. Written by Jenny Han (a favorite author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series) and new favorite Siobhan Vivian (author of recently read The List), this drama will leave with a great feeling of satisfaction. We’ve all had people that have “wronged” us and this group of girls, naturally all part of different clicks and groups at their high school, come together to seek revenge of those individuals that have indeed done them wrong. I believe that most of us who have been in high school and college, can connect to at least one of the story lines along the way of relationship disasters, jealously, and being queen bee! Some parts are a little mature, as it takes place with junior and senior high school students, but otherwise I do believe there is a great lesson and moral underneath all the intense and understandable drama! Loved it!
