Oh, I'm so happy that there's the chance of reading this book here. Great, I alreay have this book on my wish list for some weeks now.

Wart ihr schon einmal in einer Situation, in der ihr euch an jemandem am liebsten rächen wolltet oder habt ihr es sogar getan?
Yes, I've already been in situations like that. And not only for one time. And it's always difficult to handle such a situation, because I can't think well if I'm angry, frustrated, or something like that. I think I've never taken revenge, because I wouldn't know how to do it. And I quickly feel guilty.. So, most times I just cry and I am frustrates and angry about myself being to scared to do anything.. I often have revenge plans but I soon forget about them. Although there are times, when I can't really stand the pressure of doing nothing but waiting. Well, it was in the third class, I think, when I had these thoughts the first time..
But if there is someone making me angry all the time today, I take little "revenge". Just a small one like telling him about what I disliked about his behaviour. Nothing more. I guess, that this is enough revenge.. Honesty, I'm always a little bit proud after a situation like this. I mean, I'm not happy when I can hurt someone or something like this, but I have already been too nice to too many people and I don't like being the little girl saying "yes" and "sorry" to everything and everyone.. I feel better in a way, that I don't have the impression of being submissive all the time. Because I have learnt, that I'm not wrong all the time...

So I can easily understand those girls, but I woudn't take revenge.. I would prefer talking to Alex, Rennie and Reeve.
I'm really interested in this topic and I really would like to know what there revenge looks like. I think it is very difficult to make decisions in this case..
This book sounds so exciting. And I think that it's good for girls of my age. Moreover, I really enjoyed the excerpt.
I would be very happy if I got the chance of reading this book in this Leserunde.

I'd also like to take part cause I have this book on my wishlist for some weeks now and I didn't know if I should buy it as I saw it in the book store but this would be a great chance :)


I think everyone was at least once in a situation and just wanted revenge for whatever. It's hard to handle a situation like that cause most times you're just angry, sad and disappointed.
When I was little my best friend started to hang out more with a new girl in the neighbourhood and I was so sad and wanted her to do more thing s with me again so when I was with my parents at the new girl's place I took a teddy bear lying on her bed and hid it somewhere in my friend's room and when the new girl found it there she was so angry and didn't want to have anything to do with her and I was pretty proud of myself but then I felt guilty and explained them the whole situation.
Childish, I know.

But I think I learnt from mistakes and I'm trying to clear these situations with talking and in most cases one of us just misunderstood anything and everything was okay again :)

I'd really like to know what the girls plan to do and what happens in the end, so I'd really appreciate it to participate in this reading round.

Now I REALLY can't wait for the 2. book how long is it gonna take? :(

The last part was really fierce. What's gonna happen with Reeve? What was in the drugs? Is he gonna make it? And what are the girls gonna do? What is up with Mary?

To the last one I have to say that I'm really dissapointed. I don't like that there's some fantasy stuff going around in a pretty "normal" book. But I don't know any of the authors' other books so maybe that's how they're doing it. I hope that in the 2. book her "magic" is gonna be more in the background or she - however - misunderstood something.

First of all, I want to say that I'm sorry it took me so long to get started...

I had a hard time to get into the book's characters. It was quite difficult to remember who is who. But now, I think, I've managed to keep the important aspects of the characters in my mind.
I like the fact that the three protagonists first have to get together as a group before the actual 'revenge plot' starts. So the reader has the opportunity to get to know the characters step by step.

So,taking revenge has finally started!
I'm a bit surprised that it started with smashing a car window and stealing a little black book - it seems so random.
I like the style of writing but the plot isn't very compelling. I'm always waiting for something more to happen...

I liked that the whole story about Reeve and Mary finally came out. Now I can understand why Mary is so anxious when Reeve is around. But nonetheless...I still don't really like the plot.

Okay, the end was quite surprising, I must admit. But I can't tell what exactly has happened at the Homecoming although I've read the end twice! Sure, it does have a cliffhanger: Does Mary have any supernatural power? WHat happens next? Does Reeve survive? Will the three girls get what they deserve now?
But I'm not sure if I'll read the next book - the plot just didn't catch me. It was too confusing, too naive and somehow too random...
