Previously published as Lovely Vicious, this fully revised and updated edition is full of romance, intrigue, and laugh-out-loud moments.
Don’t love your enemy. Declare war on him.
Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, nine weeks, and five days, and after what happened last time, she intends to keep it that way. Since then she’s lost eighty-five pounds, gotten four streaks of purple in her hair, and moved to Buttcrack-of-Nowhere, Ohio, to help her mom escape a bad relationship.
All the girls in her new school want one thing—Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince of East Summit High. Hot as an Armani ad, smart enough to get into Yale, and colder than the Arctic, Jack Hunter’s never gone out with anyone. Sure, people have seen him downtown with beautiful women, but he’s never given high school girls the time of day. Until Isis punches him in the face.
Jack’s met his match. Suddenly everything is a game.
The goal: Make the other beg for mercy.
The game board: East Summit High.
The reward: Something neither of them expected.
"A complex, witty page-turner, ideal for YA fans of scandal and romance." - Kirkus Review
"The Lovely Vicious series blew me away. Gripping, dark, and clever -- truly one of my favorites!" - Penelope Douglas, New York Times bestselling author of Bully
"It's rare to find a unique writing voice that is so enjoyable and done so well. Enjoy the ride!" - J. Sterling, New York Times bestselling author of 10 Years Later
"AHHHHHHH!!!! I love Isis Blake! I want to meet her! I want to be her best friend! Ok, I'll settle down now. What a super fun story - soooo well written. The witty mind of this girl is so fun to encounter. Snarky but loveable. Young girls could learn a lot from her. More! I want more of her story! Sara Wolf is my new favorite. And I am one of those hard to please readers!" - Jo Hick, Librarian at Phillips Public Library
"Isis. Was. Everything. She was, quite frankly, HILARIOUS. Seriously, I have never read a character with this much snark, this much sass...her internal thoughts had me in stitches, and the bantering she engaged in -- particularly with Jack -- was just delightful to read. And it wasn't just witty repartee, sometimes Isis would devolve into childish humour too, and I enjoyed the range she showed -- she was more than just one thing. I started highlighting, and soon realized I would be highlighting half the book if I kept that up." - Lenore Kosinski, Celebrity Readers Blog
