Queen Bee Chloe is going to make Toni suffer for whatever transpired between Toni and Chloe's boyfriend, Oliver, over the summer. From day one of eleventh grade, she has Toni branded as a super slut, and it isn't long before things get so ugly that Toni fears for her safety. What's a scared, powerless, and fed-up teenager to do? Guided by Cassandra—a girl with some serious problems of her own—Toni decides to stop playing the victim and take control. Cassandra has been experimenting with witchcraft, and together they cast a spell on Chloe that may actually cause her death. Could Toni have really made such an awful thing happen?

 When I picked up this book I was thinking it would be all about witches & how a girl discovers she is a witch (I didn't read the description, just saw it at the library). This book was definitely a lot different than I was expecting & I am so glad that I picked it up! Toni seems to have a habit of hooking up with guys who are in awkward relationship situations & she ends up becoming the enemy of the most powerful girl at school, who is determined to make her life hell. I felt so bad for Toni & I definitely understand why she wanted to get revenge. For most of the book I didn't like Cassandra but by the end I felt so bad for her & I could definitely understand why she acted the way she did. There were parts of this book that I wasn't crazy about in the beginning but I'm glad that I stuck with it because there was a lot of depth that I didn't expect. I would definitely suggest it!
