Part of a trilogy that can be read in any order. I enjoyed this book. It was another quick and easy read. This is a book you can finish in a day. Well written for the length of the book. ( )

Pros: Short chapters, fast pace, decent vocabulary

Cons: Characters are not very well developed, plot is full of holes and is not entirely believable ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This young-adult novel is told by Josie, a teenage girl who is living on the streets after her family has been murdered and her house burned down. She lives to get revenge on the corrupt cop who destroyed her life. The characters are not particularly well-developed, and there are too many coincidences to be really believable, but the novel might be appealing to teens, particularly reluctant readers. This novel is part of the Retribution Trilogy, which also includes Unleashed and Exposed. ( )

Decent book, not something I would read again but I don't regret reading it. However the plot of the book plays very close to a movie. Which was a bummer. However it was very well written and worth a one time read. ( )

I liked this book in the sense that it would be great/attractive for some of my reluctant readers. I don't feel it's an incredibly well-developed story. The first person narration works and the back story of her family dying in a fire is very intriguing. The character development of the antagonist/cop merely skims the surface and the ending and transition into the next book is quite rushed. ( )
