Review : Mortal Danger

Mortal Danger
Ann Aguirre
Square Fish

From Goodreads: Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of despair, and four months ago, she couldn't imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She's not supposed to think about Kian once the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he's impossible to forget.

In one short summer, her entire life changes and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly . . . bad things are happening. It's a head rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil's bargains, she isn't sure who—or what—she can trust. Not even her own mind.

My Review: I really enjoyed the story in this book. Engrossing and at points quite disturbing. The only problem I had with it really is the whole transformation thing. I think in a time where we tell our young people it is okay to be you and look the way you do its message was a little harsh. Don't get me wrong I know kids are still bullied by other for stupid reasons and we want nothing more than revenge on them. This book deals with that and as  Edie gets her revenge,  at what consequences to her. This book keeps you guessing and begs the question is it worth it? This is a series I am going to continue.
