Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year

Jenny Green is a spoiled teen "princess" and the newest junior at Montreal's Molson Academy. Jenny wants a fresh start in her new school, and she's curious to see what Montreal has to offer, most especially in the boy department. Beautiful, charming, and sharp-witted, Jenny has no trouble getting the boys to fall for her. But when she discovers just how despicable the male gender can be -- with the lying, the cheating, and the utter disrespect -- she decides to make them pay...with their lives.


At first, I liked this book, I enjoyed the easy reading and such. But, as the book progressed, it seemed to become repetiti
ve...dry. I lost interest by the time I hit the second killing of Jenny Green, as there didn't seem to be much distinction between the two, other than her reasoning and methods. The characters seemed to only be about ankle deep, including the main character, Jenny Green.

I have to admit, I wasn't really amused with the book, as I thought it to be a bit much, and just going in circles. That is not to say it felt like I wanted to put it down; that I forced myself through it. No. But when I completed it, finished reading the final page, I let out a sigh, knowing it is not one I would read again, but glad I got to read it.

Overall, I think this book is just on the level that it isn't a book I would want to buy, but for taking out of the library, it is fine. This is not to say you should not go and read it, please do, as I am only one person, only one review and my voice is not multiplied to stand for more because I am a reviewer. By all means, go read this book, see what you think about the writing, the characters, and the plot. I am sure these two authors would really appreciate it!

I heard mixed reviews for this book. I'm not too big of a fan for the plot.

Good review btw.

It sounds a bit interesting, but I haven't really heard too many good things...I did hear it was funny for a few though, so I might try it out at some point.
