Review: Getting Even

Title: Getting Even (Good Girlz Club #4)
Author: ReShonda Tate Billingsley
Publisher: Pocket
Pages: 175
Book Source: Night Owl Reviews

Description: Best friends forever, Camille, Alexis, Jasmine, and Angel always stand up for each other. So when Camille runs into boy problems, Jasmine is ready to settle the score - even ready to fight! Camille convinces her it's not worth it, even though she was attacked by some girls who are jealous of the attention she's getting from Vic, a cute guy Camille met at a football game.

But Camille's boy troubles are just starting...

Alexis is dating a guy named Anthony, and it doesn't take long for Jasmine to discover that he's Anthony Vickers - the very same Vic that Camille has fallen for! When the truth comes out, the girls cook up a scheme for payback, something that will teach a two-timing guy the error of his ways.

But their dramatic plan may be backfiring, tearing at the bonds of their own friendship, and showing them that the price for revenge is high - for everyone.

My Thoughts: I really liked this one. It isn't just a story of revenge but of friendship. It shows how one guy can come between friends sometimes pretty easily. We want to have someone with us that makes us feel good and says all the right things.

Too often as girls we let our emotions get the better of us. It can really suck when something comes between friends. This story shows the consequences of that.

If you know that your friend is being two-timed do you tell them? If you had a friend that knew you were being two-timed would you want to know? Would you give your guy a second chance? Would you want revenge? How much proof would you want or could you take your friends word for it?

I think this series would be perfect for a reading group. In the back of each book it even has a list of discussion questions to help things along.
