Product description

All it takes is one fatal mistake ...High-school beauty Natalie Hargrove has spent years plotting to become prom queen. She's got just what it takes: popularity, glamour and ruthless ambition. When someone threatens to overturn her perfect plan, Natalie needs to take control. But a critical error plunges her into a sea of secrets, shame and scandal. Because it turns out there's one thing even Natalie Hargrove can't command - and that's fate. An irresistibly exciting novel from the author of international bestsellers Fallen and Torment.

Customer reviews

By Maryam H 28 May 2011 1

For those of you that follow the blog you'll know that I haven't had a great experience with any of Lauren Kate's books. I really didn't like Fallen or Torment but I thought I would give her books one last chance...

I really, really don't want to do any sort of book bashing in this review, but I have to say, I really, really hated this book.

I really am sorry to say that I didn't enjoy a single thing about it. I didn't like the characters, especially Natalie herself, I didn't like the plot, I didn't like the writing....I just.Didn't.Like.It.

There really isn't much to say after that but I did give it as much of a shot as I could. But, at the end of the day, I had to force myself to finish it in the hope it would get better.

So, that's it. I think it has come to the point where I just won't pick up another of Lauren Kate's books again to save anybody from these sort of reviews that I sincerely hate to write. It's disappointing. I suppose some author's styles are just not for me...

Review quote

"Lots of adjectives can be applied to this novel - mean, smutty, decadent - all of them compliments" Booklist "Lauren Kate's first novel is an entertaining high-school thriller that's fairly loosely based on Macbeth. A fun read for fans of this talented author" The Bookbag "Think Macbeth meets Gossip Girl" -- Natasha Harding The Sun "I enjoyed this book very much; it's Twilight turned High School Musical (minus the singing). I would reccomend this book to anyone I know, and I am definitely going to read the other books written by Lauren Kate" -- Chelsie Davies South Wales Argus
