I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Samantha Evens used to be popular at school. Then her father is arrested for insider trading and her life falls apart. Her former best friend is now her tormentor and she now lives in a trailer with her aunt. Sam vows to seek revenge by using the schools secret society against it’s own members.
This novel was interesting, as it highlights what can happen when bulling gets out of control. Sam is bullied and then becomes a bully herself.
I did like this book and I think it would be a great read for high school students. Something I liked was the interesting quotes from famous people at the beginning of each chapter.
The main characters were very believable to me. I did emphasize with Sam. I think it’s easy to understand how hard it would be for her in the circumstances she was in. She is portrayed as a flawed but not all together bad person.
I would recommend as a novel for young adults. Especially those going through a similar situation as Sam was in. I give it four stars.
Jodie Andrefski lives in a tiny town in PA that no one has ever heard of with her teenage daughter. She received her BS in Secondary English Education from Penn State, then taught a few years before changing focus and going back to school for her Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. Andrefski always loved both reading and writing, and wrote for several websites and magazines before deciding to write novels. She writes YA Contemporary, most of which involves at least some kissing. The Society is her second novel with Entangled Teen.
