At age fifteen, while in High School, Christina was a quiet nerdish girl.
The school rich bad boys played an awful joke that ended up with her being sent boarding school.
Sixteen years have passed, and she is now a beautiful woman with a nice job as a photojournalist and a bitter taste for revenge that is about to trigger.
When she bumps into Bill Havenwood, one of her tormentors, all the hate and humiliation erupts back. She decides to get back at the handsome rich boy and teach him a lesson.
But when she rear ends his Ferrari, the tables get turned and Christina gets in deeper than she ever thought.
Some people may find that there is too much deceit going on.
However, if you think about what's going on on the movie scene nowadays - and she does have a film school background, after all - you will be able to understand, relax and enjoy the book as it deserves.
We are living the Cohens-Tarantino-Rodrigues-Wachowskis times. As a screenwriter, Anna Mara has certainly been influenced by those artists and has brought exaggeration to the romantic comedy genre.
Being a screenwriter, myself, I can only applaud Anna Mara for the audacity of refreshing the genre with this new style of writing.
The plot and characters are very well developed.
Almost every character in the story is dug in deeply in some kind of foul play and, even though it may get a bit saturated here and there, the turmoil is fun.
One other thing that caught my attention is the contemporary influence of social networks and all their unnatural terms of endearment thrown around.
At over 400 pages, this debut novel was surprisingly easy to get through and the small flaws that one can find here and there do not get in the way of a much enjoyable reading.
This book got my attention immediately and is just one of those novels that you do not want to put down, craving for just another chapter.
The fast-paced writing style flows very smoothly and even with all the twists and rolling laughter that it brings to the reader.
A shocking, outrageous and deserving revenge, spiced up with a few sex sparks and tear drops, engages the reader into a ride that will certainly be a page turner.
We recommend the book for adults, teenagers, and very mature kids, with parental guidance.
