TW: rape, mental health
Hannah Capin’s Foul is Fair is a bloody, thrilling revenge fantasy for the girls who have had enough. Golden boys beware: something wicked this way comes.
Jade and her friends Jenny, Mads, 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 Jade’s sweet sixteen, when they crash a St. Andrew’s Prep party. The night the golden boys choose Jade as their next target.
They picked the wrong girl.
Sworn to vengeance, Jade transfers to St. Andrew’s Prep. 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.
This book is insane in a great way. It was very different from my normal type of read but I found that to be the most exciting thing about it.
I’d heard many people talking it up and it really is as ruthless as the expectation put on it.
When our main character is raped at a party she decides revenge is her best option. She, along with her friends, do everything they can to infiltrate the lives of those who allowed the deed to happen in an absolutely gripping way, serve out their punishment the way they see fit.
This is just. Worth a read even if it is just for the emotions and disgust and satisfaction of everyone’s actions. Gratuitous… something goes around and it happens in just the right method that you can’t look away from.
I recommend broadly on this one and urge you to go outside your comfort zone.
