The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars in Gretchen McNeil’s witty and suspenseful novel about four disparate girls who join forces to take revenge on high school bullies and create dangerous enemies for themselves in the process. Perfect for fans of E. Lockhart, Karen M. McManus, and Maureen Johnson.
Bree Deringer, Olivia Hayes, Kitty Wei, and Margot Mejia have nothing in common. At least that’s what they’d like the students and administrators of their elite private school to think.
The girls have different goals, different friends, and different lives, but they share one very big secret: They’re all members of Don’t Get Mad, a secret society that anonymously takes revenge on the school’s bullies, mean girls, and tyrannical teachers.
But when their latest target ends up dead with a blood-soaked “DGM” card in his hands, the girls realize that they’re not as anonymous as they thought—and that someone now wants revenge on them.
As the unlikely group searches for the killer, they also uncover secrets and lies that rock their tenuous friendship to the core. Soon the clues are piling up, the police are closing in . . . and everyone has something to lose.
Bree, Kitty, Olivia, and Margot are an unlikely group at least according to students at Bishop DuMaine, a private school where viciousness is regularly meted out by the ruling class. These four girls make up a secret student revenge squad called DGM (Don't Get Mad), which has been wreaking havoc on the popular crowd and the school's nastiest teachers on behalf of their victims. In an effort to discover the students behind DGM, principal Father Uberti has assigned a group of bullies called the 'Maine Men to rout its members out. When one of DGM's targets turns up dead, the killer makes it look like the work of DGM, and suddenly the girls are receiving mysterious clues related to the murder. With a dizzying number of characters and suspects, it can be difficult to keep track of who's who, but as DGM gets close to catching the killer, and the girls threaten to turn on one another, the suspense that McNeil (Ten) builds should keep readers curious to discover what happens next in this planned series. Ages 13 up.
