[Waiting on Wednesday] Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin

Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event created by Breaking the Spine in which an anticipated title is highlighted. You can find their website here.

After reading Hannah Capin’s debut The Dead Queens Club and seeing the kind of power she could write for her cast of female characters, I was anxious to read her future stories. A Macbeth retelling of vengeance sounded epic and I am very pleased that I’ll be able to pen a review for y’all because I’ve got an arc of Foul is Fair.

What sounds good about this? The themes of taking back power, of not letting the elitist assholes win, of not letting the presumed storyline be it, of Elle and her friends not letting their stories be written for them.

With a little under a month to go until release, I’m going to be gobbling the rest of this book up, anxious to share my thoughts with y’all and see what you think upon release.

Elle and her friends Mads, Jenny, and Summer rule their glittering LA circle. Untouchable, they have the kind of power other girls only dream of. Every party is theirs and the world is at their feet. Until the night of Elle’s sweet sixteen, when they crash a St. Andrew’s Prep party. The night the golden boys choose Elle as their next target.

They picked the wrong girl.

Sworn to vengeance, Elle transfers to St. Andrew’s. She plots to destroy each boy, one by one. She’ll take their power, their lives, and their control of the prep school’s hierarchy. And she and her coven have the perfect way in: a boy named Mack, whose ambition could turn deadly.

Foul is Fair is a bloody, thrilling revenge fantasy for the girls who have had enough. Golden boys beware: something wicked this way comes.
