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?


Burn for Burn was an okay read for me. I’m not sure if it’s because of the pranks they pulled to get back at these people or what. I think I’m just too old to get caught up in the craziness.

I did like the characters. Each one had depth, and something that made them unique. I think my favorite character is Kat. She’s fierce and doesn’t give a damn what people think of her. Or at least that’s what she portrays. Lillia is kind of vanilla. She always does what is expected of her. But she’s also dealth with some crap that she shouldn’t have had to. Mary is meek. She isn’t one to be bold like Kat, or confident like Lillia.

The drama is what really keeps this story going. Even if I didn’t agree with what this group of girls do, I think it shows how friendships can come from the unlikeliest of places.
