Bestselling and critically acclaimed authors Jenny Han, author of To All the Boys I've Loved Before, and Siobhan Vivan team up in this brand new trilogy. Perfect for fans of Pretty Little Liars and Big Little Lies.

Big girls don't cry... they get even.

Postcard perfect Jar Island is home to charming tourist shops, pristine beaches, amazing ocean front homes and three girls quietly plotting revenge.

Kat is tired of having people lie to her. One more cruel word from her ex best friend or her secret hook up acting like she doesn't exist will be the last straw. Those two deserve to feel as awful as they've made her feel. But if she tried anything, everyone would suspect her immediately...

Lillia is ready to stop pretending her senior year is going to be so great. After what her best friend Rennie got her into this past summer and the way her guy friends are looking at her little sister, she is starting to feel like these "friends" are nothing but the entitled brats she has always denied they were.

Mary has just gotten back to Jar Island after a traumatic event several years ago that still haunts her. She is determined to put it behind her, but when she sees Reeve, she is certain that will only happen when he feels the same pain that his actions caused her. But she can't get revenge alone...

Maybe someone should show them there are consequences to bad behaviour.

Our customer reviews

I wanted to read Deliverance because I have loved not only the beautiful covers but the story and world inside the book. The first and second books were fast paced and great reads for me and I def wanted to read the conclusion to this enjoyed series. I will admit that I didn't get into it right away because I didn't remember the details of what had happened in the first two books and my reviews didn't help much. I could recall Logan and Rachel as well as Willow, but the rest were a bit fuzzy. I really need a site that will tell me what happened in the first books of series since it is so long in between and maybe the beginning wouldn't have been so slow for me. I skimmed a bit especially with Logan's part because even though I know that I liked the romance with him and Rachel, I didn't remember his characteristics and he was under a lot of pressure and I think that those below him asking every two seconds if he has a plan got on my nerves a bit. Once it got to the Rachel story line, I got a little more into it, but I didn't remember the details about the trackers and what her deal was with her captors besides of course, that she was kidnapped. It is so hard when the kidnapped scenario happens in books though, because I am all about some steam and chemistry and of course you don't get as much of that when separated. But you do get a different kind of character development and I know that its a key element to so many stories. It was full of some really hard scenes, on the side of gory but so heartbreaking. Some of the characters are hard to like, but I appreciate how this one really looks at motivations and how similar pasts can be but just a few different choices along the way can shape future decisions and actions. On top of that the theme of forgiveness that Rachel learned while being captive and how important it can be even the simplest kindess can mean to someone else. The story tied up the plots and gave me satisfaction with reading, although I think that I would have liked it even more if there were more recap in the beginning, because there is no way that I had time to reread no matter how much I enjoy the series or books before it. Feeling lost and forgetting a bunch of the side characters as well as referenced past events that are seriously impacting the characters choices made me continue to be a bit lost and knowing that I was missing out on development and even more resolution than if I read back to back, had better memory retention, better recap, or a chance to reread. Bottom Line: Enjoyable, but forgot a lot and was a bit lost. Still loved Rachel and Logan and appreciated their ending.show more

Meet Lillia. Good girl from a rich family who never had any problems dealing with boys who like her. However, this summer is not going to be an easy one. Thanks to her best friend she meets two quite boys who do not get a no for an answer and, then, her little sister is a rumor involving a friend of hers. There's no way she's going to let the same thing happen to her lil' sister like it happened to her. So revenge is a wonderful idea. Now meet Kat. Once upon a time she was friends with Princess Lillia and her best friend, Rennie. Now Rennie is making her life a living hell. However, she's willing to fight back and when the opportunity to make her pay for everything she did is in front of her face, she's more than willing to start savoring the consequences of a good revenge. At last, meet Mary. Poor, timid and cute Mary. She was a citizen of Jar Island before, until something happened and she left. But now is back and willing to make the boy who screwed her life ask for a huge apology or something else. She's not the same girl that left Jar Island and she's wants to prove it. Despite this, it seems that revenge is the only way she can feel even for the thing that boy did to her long ago. Three girls, three huge messes and one common purpose: sweet, sweet revenge. Because big girls don't cry, they get even. Review: This book is freaking awesome. Those TV show lovers, this book is where Revenge meets 90210 and Pretty Little Liars. But mostly, Revenge. We met three different girls and, of course, Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian let us in the point of view of the three girls. Lillia could be described as the perfect good girl. Good grades, with a weatlhy family that loves her and with popular friends in her school. She pretty much can get any boy she wants with her innocence. On the other side we have Kat. Her mother died when she was still friends with Lillia and ::: and she's lived with her father and her brother since then. She's been raised in a house full of boys and she acts like a boy sometimes. She's a rocker inside and we totally love her! And then we have poor Mary. It's kind of an attachment to her name: poor. She was bullied in school, when she was little, just because she was fat. Now she is shy and tries to avoid attention. It's like she's a complete different person. Now she's not fat and she's still as beautiful as before, but the guy who is supposed to notice the change in her does not. This book is full of suspense and unraveling secrets. We couldn't imagine what was going to happen and while reading the book we totally realize that the world of each girl it's far from perfect. We feel bad for the three girls, but in different aspects. Princess Lillia, because that's what everybody calls her, it's suffering from a traumatic event with a university guy, thanks to Rennie. And thanks to Kat she discovers that her little sister is messing around with one of her best friends, Alex. The boy who is supposed to be in love with her, not because they are a couple or that he told her that he's in love with her, but just reading everything that boy does for her is pretty obvious. It's like the boy wears all the time a big shiny sign that sparkles with "I love you, Lillia" in his head. With Kat is totally different. We totally understand the bitterness she's keeping. Rennie is a bitch with her and it's normal that she yearns for revenge. Now she was some sort of dating Alex and discovering that he was with Lillia's sister when he called her that night is like stabbing her. Despite this and although she's glad that the person Lillia chooses for her revenge is ::: also was advantageous for her, she still feels something for him and still wants to impress him. Our advice? Girl! Get over him! He's not worth it! You just have to keep looking to the sign in his head! (The one we talked before, Book Addicts). And poor Mary is like a lost lamb in an ocean full of tigers. She lives with her creepy aunt in Island Jar and we couldn't quite decide if we like or not the aunt. The thing we couldn't understand either is why her parents can come to Jar Island. We love to know every dirty detail and it was kind of frustrating. We hated the guy (Not telling who it is, guys, but is one of the main characters. Just saying!) that bullied her and left her friendless and wanted to see him bleed and cry! (Well, maybe not bleed. But cry yes!). Sweet revenge. That's what each girl have. They decide a "victim" that deserve what they are going to get. But things get out of control at the end. In Mary's turn. And it left us with one dangerous and unnerving question: Who is really Mary? Burn for Burn is unlike anything we've read before. This isn't a sweet and romantic novel where everyone gets what they wanted at the end of the book, with the bad guys away or redeemed and the good ones with the prize. Nope, this is all about getting even. This is the true nature of revenge. The plot is all we were expecting from these two great authors: funny, entertaining, full of surprises and secrets and the uncharacteristic excitement on making you be on the edge; always wanting to know more! And what is the most interesting of it all, it's not only the three POV's of the story, but getting their stories from the beginning, but not all blurt out in the first pages. We think that's what makes you keep reading the book and then you're hooked! You just want to know more about the girls, the revenge, their plots and what is going to happen. Because, Book Addicts, a lot happens! Everything gets out of their hands and we're dying to read the second book! So, Book Addicts, don't hesitate! Not even a second! You'd love this book and you'd want to know more about Lillia, Kat and Mary and what they are going to plan for the next book of Burn for Burn. This is why we're giving five gorjuss dolls to this wonderful and revengeful book!show more
