The Karma Club By Jessica Brody Book Review

The Karma ClubPublisher:D&M Publishers Inc.

Published:March 2010

Age group:11-14

Number of pages:258


"Personally, I’m tired of waiting for the universe to get off its butt and start fixing stuff. I

don’t want to wait around for Mason to get what’s coming to him. Or Heather Campbell, for

that matter . . . I want to be there to see it happen."

Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. It’s that

mysterious, powerful force that brings harmony to the universe. You know—do good things

and you will be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what’s

coming to you. A sort of cosmic balancing act.

But when Mason Brooks, Maddy’s boyfriend of two years, gets caught tongue-wrestling with

Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them—

except that they wind up the hot new couple of Colonial High School, it seems like Karma has

officially left Maddy in the lurch. That’s why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade,

decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization whose sole purpose is

to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind. Whether they’re modifying

Heather Campbell’s acne cream as part of “Operation Butterface,” or righting a few wrongs

when it comes to Angie and Jade’s own slimy exes, they know they’re just doing what Karma

should have done in the first place. They’re taking care of one another.

Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe. Because it turns out, when you

mess with Karma, Karma messes back. Now Maddy must find a way to balance her life for

good, even as everything around her seems to be toppling to the ground.

This book was amazing-like the other books that have been recently published this year. I

loved how the element of "Karma" was mixed into the whole book and made into the main

part. I loved how it was sort of a normal teenagers revenge attack/plan, except that Jessica

Brody changed it and made it different from the normal teenage drama stories. The

characters were all distinct and had their own little quirks, and the the plot was amazingly

complex and exciting. There are surprises in this book that make people wonder how the

author even came up with it. The ending was perfectly satisfying, and Jessica Brody gave the

perfect settings and gave just enough details-but not too much. This book is a thriller about a

teenage girl who's about to strike her revenge....
