Waiting On Wednesday (48)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

The Karma Club by Jessica Brody.

"Personally, I’m tired of waiting for the universe to get off its butt and start fixing stuff. I don’t want to wait around for Mason to get what’s coming to him. Or Heather Campbell, for that matter . . . I want to be there to see it happen."

Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. It’s that mysterious, powerful force that brings harmony to the universe. You know—do good things and you will be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what’s coming to you. A sort of cosmic balancing act.

But when Mason Brooks, Maddy’s boyfriend of two years, gets caught tongue-wrestling with Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them—except that they wind up the hot new couple of Colonial High School, it seems like Karma has officially left Maddy in the lurch. That’s why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade, decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization whose sole purpose is to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind. Whether they’re modifying Heather Campbell’s acne cream as part of “Operation Butterface,” or righting a few wrongs when it comes to Angie and Jade’s own slimy exes, they know they’re just doing what Karma should have done in the first place. They’re taking care of one another.

Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe. Because it turns out, when you mess with Karma, Karma messes back. Now Maddy must find a way to balance her life for good, even as everything around her seems to be toppling to the ground.


Another book about getting revenge on the unfaithful boys! I love the sound of it, especially the title. Aren't you just curious how Maddy and her friends mess with Karma? This is like Jessica Brody's adult series The Fidelity Files but younger and with a twist, so I'm even more excited for it.

Want to see how Karma works for these teens? Check this book out on April 27th 2010

Anyway, just want to say hi. Really nice blog you have here. I'm from VietNam too, and I've just started my blog for about 2 days :)) I'm just so happy to know that there is another booklover in our country who is also into YA books :D ('Cause at leastI haven't seen anyone around me):)
