In the rise of antihero narratives in pop culture, this deservesto be up there with some of our favorites. It’s cathartic to see karmacome around in the form of our protagonist, Jade. For Shakespearefans, all of the nods to the original play are clever. Hannah Capingets the balance just right between the source material and her ownunique vision. As a tale of revenge, Foul Is Fair soars. No matter whathappens in the book, we are always rooting for the girls.” —SofiaCopyright American Booksellers Association. All rights reserved. Debut
