Summary
Payback is paradise in this start to a trilogy from New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I've Loved Before (soon to be a major motion picture!), Jenny Han, and New York Times bestselling author of The List , Siobhan Vivian.

Postcard-perfect Jar Island is home to charming tourist shops, pristine beaches, amazing oceanfront homes--and three girls secretly plotting revenge.

KAT is sick and tired of being bullied by her former best friend.

LILLIA has always looked out for her little sister, so when she discovers that one of her guy friends has been secretly hooking up with her, she's going to put a stop to it.

MARY is perpetually haunted by a traumatic event from years past, and the boy who's responsible has yet to get what's coming to him.

None of the girls can act on their revenge fantasies alone without being suspected. But together...anything is possible.

With an alliance in place, there will be no more "I wish I'd said..." or "If I could go back and do things differently..." These girls will show Jar Island that revenge is a dish best enjoyed together.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Oh, sweet, sweet revenge. It's what three high-school girls Lillia, Kat, and Mary are after. Lillia wants to take down Alex, who is rumored to be hooking up with her little sister; Kat has her sights set on Rennie, an uberpopular mean girl; and Mary, tormented by Reeve as an overweight 12-year-old, hopes karma is a real bitch. At first the revenge plots seem lackluster (Alex's sunscreen is swapped for Retin-A), but the acts heat up as Rennie and Reeve get their turns in the hot seat. With the exception of Alex, the cast is fairly unlikable, which may make it difficult for readers to care who comes out on top. Told from the girls' alternating viewpoints, Han and Vivian's novel reads like standard contemporary fare, so when hints of the supernatural are subtly introduced, the elements feel out of place, and the title comes to an abrupt end: I just hope we get away with it. Perhaps all will come together in the next entry in the series, and fans of the Pretty Little Liars series will likely overlook any plot missteps and eat this up.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set on fictional Jar Island, this first collaboration between Han (We'll Always Have Summer) and Vivian (The List) follows three teenage girls bonded by a chilling quest for revenge. Popular Lillia is angry with her friend Alex, who spent the night with her 14-year-old sister after a party; tough girl Kat wants to sting her former friend Rennie, who has been spreading lies about her for years; and Mary, newly back on the island, is obsessed with the school quarterback, who humiliated her five years ago. Although they aren't friends, the girls promise to work together in all three acts of revenge. Each girl narrates, flashing back to memories of betrayal and describing their pranks, which escalate from distributing Alex's private writing to drugging another target. First in a planned trilogy, this fast-moving book offers an atmospheric setting and enough drama to captivate readers as they decide whether revenge is ever justified. The authors leave many unanswered questions, including the nature of a supernatural subplot that distracts somewhat from the book's focus on retribution, guilt, and status. Ages 14-up.
