Rating 4/5

The jacket on this title is simple, yet eye catching, and from the synopsis on the back gives a good idea of what to expect.  I found it slightly slow to start with, being set in a typical high school background and very girlie.  However, once the plot moved on slightly, I was hooked.  Parts of it are laugh-out-loud hilarious...the kind you find yourself having to justify to everyone in the room exactly *why* you're laughing!  The plot is intricate, and very well executed...very easy to follow with loads of fun for the reader.  It truly is a genius piece of writing, the characters are really believable, completely echoing what life and love means to this time frame, and a teenagers view of the world.

If you enjoy books like 'Pay it Forward', then you'll adore this spin on a similar vein, it's a shining example of what a feel good book should contain.  A thoroughly enjoyable read :)

The Synopsis:
"Maddy always thought she understood how Karma worked - do good things and you'll be rewarded; do something bad and you'll get what's coming to you.  But when Maddy's boyfriend, Mason Brooks, gets caught with Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them, it seems like Karma has let Maddy down badly.
That's why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade, decide to start The Karma Club - a secret society - in order to 'help' Karma along.  Sometimes, though, it isn't wise to meddle with the Universe..."
