Summary: "Postcard-perfect Jar Island is the kind of place where nobody locks their doors at night, where parents can sleep easy, knowing their daughters are tucked away safe and sound in their beds.

But bad things can happen, even to good girls . . . and sometimes, the only way to make things right is to do something wrong.

Lillia used to trust boys, but not anymore. Not after what happened this summer. And she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her little sister from the same fate.

Kat is over the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes made at her expense. It all goes back to one person--her ex-best friend. Someone needs to teach her a lesson, and, with Lillia and Mary behind her, Kat feels up to the task.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now that she’s got friends who have her back, he's going to be in big trouble.

Three very different girls who come together to make things right. Will they go too far?" -- From Goodreads

My Thoughts:

For me, Burn for Burn was such a unique book for me.  The story alternates between Lillia, Mary, and Kat.  Each girl has their motivations for wanting revenge against Alex, Reeve, and Rennie.  What they come up with for each person is very realistic.  There is also a slight paranormal edge to the book.  It doesn't come up until the end of the story, but I'm interested to see where the authors take it in the next two books.

Disclosure: I purchased my own copy.
