Her name is Domino Ray.

But the voice inside her head has a different name.

When the mysterious Ms. Karina finds Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position at her girls’ home in secluded West Texas. With no alternatives and an agenda of her own, Domino accepts. It isn’t long before she is fighting her way up the ranks to gain the woman’s approval…and falling for Cain, the mysterious boy living in the basement.

But the home has horrible secrets. So do the girls living there. So does Cain.

Escaping is harder than Domino expects, though, because Ms. Karina doesn’t like to lose inventory. But then, she doesn’t know about the danger living inside Domino’s mind.

She doesn’t know about Wilson.

5 stars: “And the author did an amazing job at keeping the suspense about Domino - throughout the book you're reminded that Domino has done bad things and that she's a monster but you don't know why until she eventually reveals it-and i honestly didn't see it coming.” –Kariny, Kariny’s Book Frenzy

This book was freaking awesome!!! Domino has been homeless for about a year and finds herself in a situation when her best friend is arrested, and she has no money to bail him out. She happens to run into this lady named Madam Karina who offers her a position at her home. Things aren't what they... ...more

Thanks so much to the publisher and author and her assistant for sending this ARC to me through NetGalley!

This was so perfect in so many ways that I CAN'T EVEN DEAL.
Violet Grenade was gritty and dark, engaging and romantic. Domino was an incredibly strong and smart heroine who was that perfect middle-ground character: she knew when to keep her mouth shut, but could whip out a witty one-liner or thre... ...more

The concept for this YA psychological thriller started with a spark for two different book ideas. On one side of my brain, I was playing with the vision of a girl getting attacked in an alleyway. The mugger believes her to be the perfect victim to rob, or kidnap, or kill. What he doesn’t know is... ...more

By Christy May 02, 2017

C'mon, as if I wouldn't read this book. First of all, the cover = ♥. Second of all, the blurb completely won me over. I will say that the original blurb made it sound more sordid and dark than the current one does. Honestly, I'm not sure if this one would've pulled me on board the way the first o... ...more

For some reason i thought this book was taking place in the Victorian era and that it was a fantasy novel but it's actually a contemporary PSYCHOLOGICAL YA THRILLER. ...

By Hollis April 01, 2017

VIOLET GRENADE is aptly named as this story felt much like a bomb. It starts out small, feels almost familiar even if you've never held it before, but cannot be contained by it's packaging once the fuse is lit. And what happens after, in the wake of the explosion, is almost.. too much to process.... ...more

By Courtney May 18, 2017

Why have I not heard of Victoria Scott before this book??? Boy does she know how to write some amazing, yet slightly bizarre characters and a very spine-tingling story with one hell of a twist. This book was way more than I anticipated it to be.

I really don't want to give too much away on this bo... ...more

“Violet Grenade” is the unique story of Domino, a young runaway who lives in abandoned houses in Detroit with her friend (and crush) Dizzy. Domino spends a lot of time hiding herself from the world, covering in wigs and thick makeup- and also trying to stay away from Wilson. Domino has dissociati... ...more

By Melissa (YA Book Shelf) March 11, 2017

Seriously, Violet Grenade is brilliant. It has an underlying dark humor that had me laughing out loud throughout the book, even though that isn't always the case with those kinds of comedic elements. It is also as creepy af - both while Domino is living in and working up the ranks in Madam Karina... ...more

By Lisa May 22, 2017

Violet Grenade is definitely a psychological tale. There is the constant wonder in your head as you read it about just what caused Domino to have this very violent person living inside of her. The one that she doesn't want to let out no matter what, because his answer to all things is violence, n... ...more

By Kristin April 17, 2017

Ooooh buddy! I mean, what can I say about this awesomely awesome story without giving anything way. Seriously, Victoria Scott has written one creepy, chilling, young adult novel that will leave you on the edge of your seat right up until the last page. Sadly, everything that is awesome about this... ...more

By Book Swoon May 30, 2017

Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott is dark, edgy, and the kind of twisty that keeps you glued to the pages.

Violet Grenade is unique and quite unlike any of Scott's previous work that I've read before, and I've read nearly all her books. With its unforgettable characterization and writing, Violet Gr... ...more

By Sydney (sydneysshelves) April 12, 2017

This book is hard for me to review. First its hard to decide what genre to put it in. Thriller? Contemporary? Mental Illness? It felt like it was less mystery thriller and more suspenseful. And while mental illness plays a huge part of this book, I think the point was on the bullying, manipulatio... ...more

By Christy May 14, 2017

Explosive. Unique. Addictive.

Sometimes you pick up a book and you're not really sure what you're getting yourself into. With Violet Grenade, you may think you know what you're getting into but nothing will prepare you for the ride you're in for.

He's my person. Not that I need one.

By Jaz February 08, 2017

A dark, captivating novel with not only a great MC, but memorable secondary characters.
I loved Domino/Wilson, Poppet and Cain. The pacing is excellent and just when you think you have something figured out, the story twists again.

Thanks to Entangled & NetGalley for the eARC. ...more

Violet Grenade is not what I was expecting at all. I received a free copy via NetGalley and Entangled Publishing. There literally seems to not have been a time when this book lets the reader relax.

Wow. I am not sure what I was initially expecting from this book to be honest but man was I given a ride. This book is dark and filled with the dark pasts of the characters within it.
