Foul is Fair
by Hannah Capin
Series: Foul is Fair #1
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Release Date: February 18, 2020
Genre: YA Contemporary, Retelling
Hannah Capin’s Foul is Fair is a bloody, thrilling revenge fantasy for the girls who have had enough. Golden boys beware: something wicked this way comes.
Jade and her friends Jenny, Mads, and Summer rule their glittering LA circle. Untouchable, they have the kind of power other girls only dream of. Every party is theirs and the world is at their feet. Until the night of Jade’s sweet sixteen, when they crash a St. Andrew’s Prep party. The night the golden boys choose Jade as their next target.
They picked the wrong girl.
Sworn to vengeance, Jade transfers to St. Andrew’s Prep. She plots to destroy each boy, one by one. She’ll take their power, their lives, and their control of the prep school’s hierarchy. And she and her coven have the perfect way in: a boy named Mack, whose ambition could turn deadly.
Hannah Capin is the author of Foul is Fair and The Dead Queens Club, a feminist retelling of the wives of Henry VIII. When she isn’t writing, she can be found singing, sailing, or pulling marathon gossip sessions with her girl squad. She lives in Tidewater, Virginia.

See again, this is another book that I would not have known was a retelling unless I was specifically told that a book was a retelling. Apparently, this is a retelling of Macbeth? I mean I personally am not a Macbeth expert or anything so I may or may not have noticed the retelling aspects but that definitely did NOT prevent me from enjoying this book for what it was. It was pretty darn awesome, if I do say so myself.
On another point, I think it’s so freaking cool that Capin and I live in the same vicinity? Well, she didn’t narrow it down which is totally fine but I’m in the region and I always think it’s so cool when authors are that close in proximity! Hopefully there will be a book signing or something nearby and I can go get my copy signed.
Okay back to the book.
I’m so freaking glad that Elle did not take this sitting down. I absolutely hate when people take advantage of others, hurt others, basically make them seem like less than a person in any kind of capacity. And I’m always one for seeing girls get their revenge on some piss poor excuses people consider a growing boy. Watch out, St. Andrew’s Prep boys.
You picked the wrong girl.

Awesome review. I started this book and couldn’t get into it but I think it was my mood. It’s quite a different style of writing and really out there – which I would normally dig. I’m def going to give it another try.

I put it down a couple of times within the past few months because other books had to come up first, but once I got past a certain part, I was able to keep going and it just felt like time passed so quickly! I’m glad that I’m expanding my comfort zone a bit with different styles of writing because I don’t know if I would have picked it up otherwise. And I always seem to find some of my favorite books when I branch out. I hope you do end up liking it if you decide to pick it up again ❤
Wow, I actually had no idea what this book was about although I’d seen the cover and title for it here and there. This actually sounds really awesome!? Had no idea it was a retelling either and I’m not super familiar with Macbeth (although I did remember struggling to enjoy it when I was in school LOL) but I’m definitely intrigued. Great review 😀

Right??!?! Seriously the cover and the title got me interested, and then the synopsis hooked me. I’m still so shocked that I got approved to read this, and then got on the blog tour. Absolutely loved my experience reading this! I hope you get to read it ❤ ❤
Seriously I don't even think I remember Macbeth very well and I'm the worst at figuring out what kind of retelling something is unless they explicitly tell me "this is a BLANK retelling" lol. Thanks Dini ❤
