Review of Burn for Burn

Postcard-perfect Jar Island is the kind of place where nobody locks their doors at night, where parents can sleep easy, knowing their daughters are tucked away safe and sound in their beds.

But bad things can happen, even to good girls . . . and sometimes, the only way to make things right is to do something wrong.

Lillia used to trust boys, but not anymore. Not after what happened this summer. And she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her little sister from the same fate.

Kat is over the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes made at her expense. It all goes back to one person--her ex-best friend. Someone needs to teach her a lesson, and, with Lillia and Mary behind her, Kat feels up to the task.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now that she’s got friends who have her back, he's going to be in big trouble.

Three very different girls who come together to make things right. Will they go too far?


During the summer I find myself driving a lot and I always love to listen to an audiobook to make the drive go faster. For my latest trip to the cabin, I choose Burn for Burn by Jenny Han. I wanted something contemporary, light and Burn for Burn totally sucked me in from the beginning. The audiobook was read by three different girls and was 7 hours, 3 minutes long.

  • The story was fun, it still gave me that “Pretty Little Liars” feel, but was an interesting story that could stand on its own two feet.
  • I loved the location. I have read a few books that are scripted on an island. It seems like that remote island makes the story so much more intense and collective. When you live on an island you can’t really get away from anyone and everyone knows your business.
  • I loved Kat, she was a little punky, definitely got the short end of the stick and was intense. Kat was the one that came up with the whole revenge scheme.
  • I am interested in Mary, I think that there is a lot more of her story left to come out, so I think I will continue with the series.
  • There was some Mean Girls flair in this book and you definitely want the Queen Bee to fall!

  • Cliffhanger ending, it all starts to get a little crazy and then the book is over.
