ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Foul Is Fair
Author: Hannah Capin
Release: February 18, 2020
Genre: YA Contemporary
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.
REASONS TO READ FOUL IS FAIR
⚔️ MACBETH RETELLING – I’m all for a good Shakespearean play and I absolutely love this retelling. The elements of the book inspired from Macbeth are subtle yet extremely clever. Hannah Capin is clearly a very intelligent writer because it was amazing seeing how she worked in aspects from Macbeth into the story.
💋 MEAN GIRLS – The girls in this book make Regina George appear to be an angel. Foul I Fair draws inspiration for the vicious shenanigans and characteristics of the main girl gang from cult classics such as Cruel Intentions, Mean Girls, and Heathers. These girls are wicked and they have murders to plan.
⚰️ REVENGE – The crux of this story revolves around the main character, Elle, and her friends getting revenge on the boys that sexually assaulted her at a party. It’s dark, it’s violent, and it’s totally satisfying. Get it girl.
💞 #FRIENDSHIPGOALS – As much as I’d love to say I’d help my best friends plan and execute the demise of fuckboys, I would have some reservations and definitely would not fall into the plan as wholeheartedly as Mads, Jenny, and Summer. Those girls redefine #friendshipgoals with how unquestionably they supported one another.
