I received this book from Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC in exchange for an honest review.
This is a revenge plot. That much is clear from the very beginning and you won’t forget it for even a solitary chapter. Sam had it all; a well-to-do upbringing, a posh private school education and the sort of best friend that ensures social standing. That all changes when said best friend, Jessica, betrays her. Now her father is in prison, her mother has passed her off on an aunt who seems more and more out of it these days and now she really only has one friend (Jeremy).
How do you explain the culmination of years of torment? Everyone has a breaking point, and I’d reached mine.
This is her senior year and she has vowed to make Jessica and her cronies pay. She meets a mysterious bad-boy in the process and begins to lose herself in him and her plot. Trinity Academy has “The Society”, its little version of Skull and Bones and Sam has her own little initiates to exact her revenge…will she succeed?
It took me a really long time to read this, mostly because it was so predictable. I just couldn’t quite get into it. As for the writing, it was sound, just nothing special. I did appreciate the Author’s Note about bullying at the end. Bullying in schools is a real problem, one we as a society should take seriously. As a first grade teacher I show zero tolerance for it, and I hope we all do our parts.
