Karma Club (Review)

So I only have two days left of school and three finals left to take so wish me luck!

I'm also not sure if I'm going to be able to post this weekend yet. I might be going on a short vacation, and normally I would be able to post while I'm on vacation. Not where I'm going though, there's no Internet or cell phone service (on a mountain in New York). If I go it will be from Sunday till Tuesday.

I just wanted to let you guys know. Now here's a review that I should have posted a LONG time ago.

Karma Club
By: Jessica Brody
Summary:"Personally, I’m tired of waiting for the universe to get off its butt and start fixing stuff. I don’t want to wait around for Mason to get what’s coming to him. Or Heather Campbell, for that matter . . . I want to be there to see it happen."

Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. It’s that mysterious, powerful force that brings harmony to the universe. You know—do good things and you will be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what’s coming to you. A sort of cosmic balancing act.

But when Mason Brooks, Maddy’s boyfriend of two years, gets caught tongue-wrestling with Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them—except that they wind up the hot new couple of Colonial High School, it seems like Karma has officially left Maddy in the lurch. That’s why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade, decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization whose sole purpose is to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind. Whether they’re modifying Heather Campbell’s acne cream as part of “Operation Butterface,” or righting a few wrongs when it comes to Angie and Jade’s own slimy exes, they know they’re just doing what Karma should have done in the first place. They’re taking care of one another.

Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe. Because it turns out, when you mess with Karma, Karma messes back. Now Maddy must find a way to balance her life for good, even as everything around her seems to be toppling to the ground.

Review: The Karma Club was a fun, quick, and delightful read. It took me a few chapters to really get into it, but when I finally did I just couldn’t stop reading. I was hooked, even with the slightly predictable plot.

At first I really liked Mason (Maddy’s boyfriend) he seemed really sweet and if I didn’t read the summary or watch the trailer I would have been just as shocked as Maddy was to find him cheating on her. I loved reading about Maddy’s revenge on Mason since I felt just as deceived as she did. Actually I had fun reading about each mission the Karma Club had.

Maddy herself did get on my nerves a few times throughout the book. She isn’t always truthful with the people she cares about. So I’d find my self groaning and yelling at her in my head as she dug herself deeper in lies. Of course the book ends with lessons being learned, and a pretty little bow wrapped around everything. The Karma Club is absolutely anther book that you should pack into your beach bag or suitcase for entertaining summer read to enjoy on the warm beaches.
