Book Review: The Karma Club by Jessica Brody

Pages: 258
Published: (Hardcover)2010

Synopsis:Madison Kasparkova catches her boyfriend of two years, making out with the hottest yet stuck up girl in school and decides that karma is taking too long to punish them both. She along with her best friends, Angie and Jade, embark on a Karma club journey to right all the wrongs ex-boyfriends and snotty girls have done to them. Little do they know that Karma will always catch up to them, whether good intentions are behind the deeds.

Book Review:The Karma Club was a great book to read, a book I think everyone could relate to. Who hasn't had a broken heart or felt like throwing rocks at a person who seems to get away with snide remarks and sketchy actions. Jessica Brody brought the message of Karma to the forefront and gave some very entertaining examples of how young people can misinterpret how Karma works.

The main character, Madison, is a senior in high school with the perfect boyfriend and a good person overall. But her rage over her boyfriend's cheating really gets her going over the edge. That part was very engaging and had me flipping the pages.

The books language captured the essence of a chatty teenage girl and it got a bit old that I'd skim the chatty parts. Nevertheless, I was very interested to see how Jessica Brody wrapped up the idea of the "Karma Club" getting caught and how Madison and her friends were going to turn their actions around.

Bottom Line: The Karma Club was entertaining to read and it made me think twice about rushing Karma myself.

Great review! The concept of this novel was definitely something that everyone can relate to at some point. I think that my main problem with The Karma Club was that they main characters were so oblivious to their poor choices.
