TW:. violence, rape, sexual assault, rape culture, suicide, etc. For a full list of TW, check out the list here.
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.
Huge thanks to Wednesday Books for gifting me an early copy to read.
Kill Bill + Macbeth = Foul is Fair.
I was not expecting this book to be heavy-hitting, brutal, and captivating. But I ended up reading it in one sitting. Days later, I am still thinking about this book. The topics are HEAVY and are not for everyone. So please please read the TW!! I cannot stress this enough.
As mentioned above, I couldn’t put this book down. Elle’s story is a difficult story to read, but so damn important. But this story isn’t just about rape, it’s about the aftermath of rape, how it affects those it happens to, how it changes them, and how society sees rape and victims. It’s a story of revenge, something most survivors dream about. And along the way, you will find yourself rooting for Elle/Jade and her coven as they take that revenge. It’s dark and brutal, but its god damn good.
The only thing I didn’t like was how quickly somethings progressed. That is literally my only complaint. The writing was fantastic, it made me feel like I was right there with Elle/Jade and her coven. The author really knows how to write a damn great book and I look forward to checking out her other work.
This will not be a book that everyone will like or want to read. That is okay, but before you jump into it, please read the TW (listed above) to get a full idea of what this book is about. But if you can handle it, then please read it.
