FREE Book and Book Review: Prank Wars by Stephanie Fowers

****--4 Stars.
356 pages, 2012.
Description: All war. No love. Madeleine’s been hurt too many times in the dating scene to let Byron beat her in some huge prank war. They’ve had their deserters, their POWS, their casualties, but no one can risk losing the battle of the sexes.
Except now something strange is happening at the college...and it’s not just the students. Buried deep beneath the pranks is real danger, and the only other person who suspects is Byron. Should Mad join sides with him or does that mean forfeiting her heart to the enemy? 

My Review: I felt like this was really two books in one. Madeleine is dumped hard by her fiancé and comes up with a battle plan to basically get revenge on all men. I felt the first half of the book was almost to the point of downright mean. She was so mean. To men she hardly knew. She and her roommates pull pranks back and forth with guys in their BYU LDS ward and seriously, some of them go too far. I understand that she's bitter and angry, but...there are social limits. I think sometimes it's a natural reaction to lash out when there's been a lot of hurt.

The second half of the book turned up a mysterious situation, which Madeleine found herself right smack in the middle of. I actually enjoyed the second half much better (not as mean) because there was more to the story than pranking.

Content: some mild perilous situations; clean.  

This book is FREE on amazon today!!
