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.
Triggers: Rape, murder, suicide attempt, abusive relationship, manipulation, violence
Elle has everything, her coven of friends, Mads, Jenny, and Summer, power and that perfect LA life. Until Duncan and his group of friends decide she’s next in their line of conquests. Elle wants revenge and her girls are ready to help. Elle becomes Jade, transferring to Duncan’s school and gains control of the popular group claiming one of the boys for herself and convincing him to do things he wouldn’t do otherwise. Elle has had enough.
Saying this book was a little crazy would be an understatement. I was not expecting all that I got from this book. This book is not playing around, the author dives right into the story beginning with the night of the party and Elle plotting her revenge.
In the beginning, I thought all the talk of ‘killing’ and all that was just symbolism and she was just pissed off, but I was way off. Elle, now Jade, works her way through the St. Andrews boys from that night with ease and help from her coven.
While Elle’s group of friends would not be my pick of friends, I do like how loyal they are to one another. How they wanted revenge just as bad as she did. (Although, I wouldn’t take this route of revenge).
There is a major plot twist that I had no idea was coming. Even with the hints toward the end, I did not see it. This twist changes the game and now no one’s safe.
This book was nothing of what I was expecting and I think anyone who loves a great revenge thriller should check this book out.
