The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen
Big thanks to the publisher for providing me this ARC in exchange for a honest review.
The expected publication: June 16th 2015
I had extremely high expectations for this book. They just were not reached. So many people loved this but i honestly just don’t see it haha. I guess it wasn’t a book for me! Gave this 1 star.
This book is all about a group of girls seeking the same thing: Revenge. Each of the girls (Liv, Peyton, Melanie Jane, and Ana) have their own reason for wanting to teach the high school football team a lesson which brings them together. They come up with the plan to steal the one thing the boys hold sacred – they have to beat them at their own game.
I didn’t connect with any of the characters, i found that they actually really annoyed me most of the time. The girls were meant to be 15, but they did not act like high school students. I just didn’t get it. I didn’t really like any of the love interests but that didn’t bother me too much since the romance was light and not the main focus. There’s some really unnecessary slut-shaming despite it being a book about friendship and girl power.
The book was fast paced and i liked that the chapters were split into the girls POV’s.
We started something. And we’re going to finish it. We will steal that football. We will have our revenge. And we will change this town.
