Publisher Description

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.

Anxious Face with sweat“This book stuck with me for many years so I hunted it down to see why it stuck with me and get out of my reading slump. Wow. I was scared now that I’m older a high school revenge plot might not hit the same way it did on my first read. This book is still such an interesting combination of characters that feel complex which makes you invested in their stories. The tragic situations this book delves into had me feeling real grief and anger for the characters. I’m so invested in this series.”

“Beginning of this book, the writing is kinda terrible. Very teen-y. But once the revenge plot starts going, it’s actually quite interesting. Everyone’s got their issues for sure and I was very surprised by one of the plot points….like it’s a little from right field, world breaking honestly. Ending is a cliffhanger but not sure if I care enough to reach a whole second book.”
