Review: I first became interested in reading this book after I watched the trailer for it. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to my expectations. I felt like the whole story was unrealistic and shallow. The things that Maddy and her friends were planning for they're exes were a little more than harmless pranks and caused some serious trouble. Because of that, I found the story really hard to relate to.
I thought the characters in this story were annoying. Maddy was so set on being popular and trying to get into the good parties as if that was the only thing that mattered. She was constantly thinking and talking about Heather Campbell and how perfect she was and how much she wanted to be like her. Why couldn't she just be happy with what she had? ( easier said than done I know, but still). Her friends Angie and Jade seemed to be a little more down to earth and I liked them better until towards the end of the book when they were both acting like complete idiots. Another thing was, I was under the impression that these girls knew how Karma worked. Do good things and you will be rewarded, to bad things and you will be punished. So these girls start totally humiliating several students and don't expect for they're luck to turn. To me it seems like they should have seen it coming. There were also a few points in the story that were pretty predictable. I wasn't surprised by what was coming and that also has a tendency to take away from the excitement of a book. So, I didn't like this book but that does mean that you won't. If it sounds like you might enjoy it then you should read it.
