The Karma Club

The Karma Club
By Jessica Brody
2010
258 pages


“Good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people. That’s just how Karma works. Well, at least that’s how I thought it worked.”

Summary: Hell hath no fury...When Madison’s boyfriend cheats on her with Miss Perfect Heather Campbell, she’s not sure she wants to wait around for Karma to take care of things. So instead she decides to start a Karma club to dish out bad things to those who deserve it, especially her ex boyfriend. However, Madison soon realizes that every action has a re-action and soon enough Karma will catch up to everyone...even her.

Review: The Karma Club is a fun, light read that could easily be devoured in one or two sittings. Readers who enjoy upside down high school settings where the cheerleader finally gets what is coming to her will no doubt find something satisfying in this comedic novel. Madison is a very likable and charming character, despite her desire to seek revenge. Her honesty and frankness make her stand out amongst the plethora of other realistic fiction main characters. There are also key elements of friendship, forgiveness, honesty and romance to appeal to YA audiences.

This is Jessica Brody’s debut YA novel
