Summary (from Simon & Schuster Canada):
When sweet revenge turns sour… Book two of a trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian.
Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.
Not even close.
For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.
And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.
It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn...
I absolutely loved Burn for Burn, Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian's first co-written book together, last September... so it should really come as no surprise that I'm excited to read Fire with Fire! Burn for Burn was delightfully dramatic and brought out my dark side as the three girls plotted revenge, and I can't wait to see what kind of repercussions they'll now have to deal with in the sequel. And is there something supernatural about Mary when she gets really angry? It's all so mysterious... I'm sure Fire with Fire is going to be awesome!
