(Thanks to Netgalley & Wednesday Books, I received an eARC)
Elle and her friends Mads, Jenny, and Summer rule their glittering LA circle. Untouchable, they have the kind of power other girls only dream of. Every party is theirs and the world is at their feet. Until the night of Elle’s sweet sixteen, when they crash a St. Andrew’s Prep party. The night the golden boys choose Elle as their next target.
They picked the wrong girl.
Sworn to vengeance, Elle transfers to St. Andrew’s. She plots to destroy each boy, one by one. She’ll take their power, their lives, and their control of the prep school’s hierarchy. And she and her coven have the perfect way in: a boy named Mack, whose ambition could turn deadly.
Foul is Fair is a bloody, thrilling revenge fantasy for the girls who have had enough. Golden boys beware: something wicked this way comes.
Right from the synopsis I knew this was definitely going to be a book for me. I remember being in thralled right from the first chapter. This whole book revolves around revenge, and it was so well written that I actually felt like the revenge is warranted. That’s not normally like me, but I do love reading a good revenge plot.
Elle is one of the most determined characters I’ve ever read. She manages to do everything that she does with an air of superiority surrounding her. The simple fact that she switch schools and these boys had no idea it was her was just the icing on the cake. She may definitely be one of my all-time favorite characters.
If you are looking for a good revenge plot buck with a feminist take, this is definitely the book for you. I found that I had a hard time putting this book down because I needed to know if it was going to end the way I wanted it to. I was a huge fan of this book and would recommend it to absolutely everyone.
