Foul is fair review


Elle 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.

My review

5 stars

I loved this book so much. The writing is poetic and beautiful and I couldn’t get enough of it-I usually don’t read books on the trolley and train but I read this one back in October, (I just kept forgetting to type up my review which is why I’m posting it now.) on my way to Disneyland and by the time I was back from my trip I was almost done.

If I were to describe this book in one word it would be fierce.

For her 16th birthday Elle and her friend’s decided to crash a high school party, not their high school but another one a St. Andrews prep one.  It’s here that Elle’s drink is spiked by the golden boys of St. Andrews and she is raped. It’s after when she changes her name to Jade, dyes her hair revenge black and forms a plan to take down all four boys who have wronged her. First she transfers schools, than she befriends the guys girlfriends and seduces Mack the only boy who wasn’t at the party. One by one the boys start to fall with the help of her coven of girlfriends.

I loved everything about this book it’s dark and twisted, it’s a retelling of Macbeth- I’m a big Shakespeare fan which is why I agreed to do the blog tour. This book is exactly what a revenge fantasy should look like, over the top, beautiful, full of brilliant characters who take what they want and more and have no regrets doing it.

I adore jade and her coven of girlfriends they have her back and she has there’s and while I might be a little scared of them, especially jade. There loyal to each other, there smart and there ruthless and that might be why I love them so much.

I don’t know what else to say except if you can handle it go read it!

Would I would 100% recommend this book to someone and I can’t wait to read more books from this authors.

Content warning

sexual assault (not depicted), rape culture, and violence, an abusive relationship, a suicide attempt, and a brief scene with transphobic bullying. 

i had a bit of a hard time writing this review because it’s been awhile since i read it and also because i loved it so much i really don’t know what to say about it.
