FURY by Elizabeth Miles

It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But all is not as it seems...

Em is thrilled that the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend. And on the other side of town, Chase’s social life is unraveling and the stress of his home life is starting to take its toll. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel....And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.

In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. There are three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—to choose who will pay. Em and Chase have been chosen.

Wow, let me just start by saying that I absolutely loved this book. OMG. It turned out to be an awesome surprise, a lot better than I expected.

Em is a naughty girl. She's got a huge crush on her best friend's boyfriend and is planning to do something about it while she's away. Chase should be an outsider, but he's a popular jock with a secret.

When three mysterious and very creepy girls start haunting and stalking them, they soon find out how deadly revenge is. What goes around comes around in the town of Ascension.

Like I said, I was blown away by this book. Was totally hooked from the beginning and although both Em and Chase were characters who'd done some pretty bad things, they also had sympathetic qualities and I was drawn to their story. I couldn't wait to find out how it would all turn out, and wasn't disappointed. Though I have to say that this isn't a happily ever after story. This is an honest look at average people doing bad things and then being held accountable for it in the harshest of ways.

Loved it!
