My Opinions On: Get Even by Gretchen McNeil

Hey guys, recently I watched an author interview with Gretchen McNeil from TWIYA and it honestly makes me want to go out and buy all of her novels and read them. Although I am already excited to get my hands on Possess and Ten, I am now excited for her newest series to come out which is called Don't Get Mad. The first book in this series is Get Even. This series reminds me a lot of Pretty Little Liars, not that I think it is a copy or anything, I just think it probably has similarities and it would definitely appeal to the PLL's crowd. Unfortunately there isn't a cover for this book as of yet, because it doesn't come out until 2014! That is such a ways away, but I guess I will endure it lmao.

In order for you guys to get excited about this new series here is the blurb from

Get Even follows the secretive exploits of four high school junior - Kitty, Olivia, Margot and Bree - at an exclusive Catholic prep school.

To all outward appearances, the girls barely know each other. At best, they don't move in the same social circles; at worst, they're overly hostile. 

Margot Mejia - academically ranked number two in her class, Margot is a focused overachiever bound for the Ivy League.

Kitty Li - captain of the California state and national champion varsity girls' volleyball team, she's been recruited by a dozen colleges and has dreams of winning an Olympic gold medal. 

Olivia Hayes - popular star of the drama program, she's been voted "most eligible bachelorette" two years running in the high school yearbook and has an almost lethal combination of beauty and charm.

Bree Deringer - outcast, misfit and the kind of girl you don't want to meet in a dark alley, the stop sign red-haired punk is a constant thorn in the side of teachers and school administrators alike. 

Different goals, different friends, different lives, but the girls share a secret no one would ever guess. They are members of Don't Get Mad, a society specializing in seeking revenge for fellow students who have been silently victimized by their peers. Each girl has her own reason for joining the group, her own set of demons to assuage by evening the score for someone else. And though school administration is desperate to find out who is behind the DGM "events", the girls have managed to keep their secret well hidden. 

That is until one of their targets - a douchebag senior who took advantage of a drink underclassman during a house party, videotaped it on his phone, and posted it on YouTube - turns up dead, and DGM is implicated in the murder. 

Now the girls don't know who to trust, and as their tenuous alliance begins to crumble, the secrets they've hidden for so long might be their ultimate undoing. 

Doesn't this sound so good! I cannot wait for it to come out. What do you think about it? Are you going to check it out when it finally releases?
