Author: Hannah Capin
Publication Date: February 2020
Elle and her friends Mads, Jenny, and Summer rule their glittering LA circle. Untouchable, they have the kind of power other girls only dream of. Every party is theirs and the world is at their feet. Until the night of Elle’s sweet sixteen, when they crash a St. Andrew’s Prep party. The night the golden boys choose Elle as their next target.

They picked the wrong girl.

Sworn to vengeance, Elle transfers to St. Andrew’s. She plots to destroy each boy, one by one. She’ll take their power, their lives, and their control of the prep school’s hierarchy. And she and her coven have the perfect way in: a boy named Mack, whose ambition could turn deadly.

Foul is Fair is a bloody, thrilling revenge fantasy for the girls who have had enough. Golden boys beware: something wicked this way comes.

"Every mark they left, everything they did, didn't even get close to breaking me. I'm ten times stronger than they'll ever be. A thousand times more ruthless."

Binged this in one sitting! It was violent, bloody, dark, ruthless and disturbing! But I do love it nonethless! This book is about revenge after sexual assault and about survivors taking power into their own hands. It a was a raw, raging and visceral read.

What I honestly like about this book is the intense feminist retelling and one that I found especially empowering. Its about seeking violent revenge against those found guilty with a strong female protagonist who isn't afraid of getting her hands dirty. Although the story was a little bit unrealistic for me, I still found this book enjoyable and total page turner. I really enjoyed this novel and looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
