Book Review – Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin

foul is fairElle and her friends Mads, Jenny, 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 Elle’s sweet sixteen, when they crash a St. Andrew’s Prep party. The night the golden boys choose Elle as their next target.

They picked the wrong girl.

Sworn to vengeance, Elle transfers to St. Andrew’s. 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.

Foul is Fair is a bloody, thrilling revenge fantasy for the girls who have had enough. Golden boys beware: something wicked this way comes.

I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I would definitely NOT have liked or been friends with these girls in real life. BUT as fictional characters, I loved reading about them! They are fierce and loyal, and frankly wonderful to journey along with. All of the characters are not great people, and part of that is the world they all live in – a very opulent one, full of absent parents, privilege and trust funds.

I did love Elle / Jade and her coven, and that they referred to themselves as such hehe. And I loved how they protect each other, sometimes even from themselves.
Obviously this book does deal with some very serious topics – rape and abuse etc, and does deal with them well. I would not necessarily recommend this book as a guide on how to deal with them though! Hehe.

This book is wonderfully full of violence, revenge, and a messed up version of justice that I strangely loved. It felt like a book I needed to read – a way of dealing with some of the extremities of life, that I have luckily not personally experienced. It is dark, but tempered by humour. it is glorious.
