Book Review: The Julian Game by Adele Griffin

Title: The Julian Game
Author: Adele Griffin
Pages: 208
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Source: ARC given to me by the author
Summary: All new girl Raye Archer wants is a way into the in crowd, so when ice-queen Ella Parker picks her to get back at her ex, the gorgeous Julian Kilgarry, Raye is more than game. Even if it means creating a fake Facebook identity so she can learn enough about Julian to sabotage him. It's a fun and dangerous thrill at first, but Raye hadn't counted on falling for Julian herself and igniting Ella's rage. As Raye works to reconcile the temptress Elizabeth with her real-life self, Ella serves up her own revenge, creating an online smear campaign of nasty rumors and trashy photographs. Suddenly notorious, Raye has to find a way out of the web of deceit that she's helped to build, and back to the relationships that matter.

Review: When I saw this book, I was interested in reading it. The cover looked interesting, and when I read the summary, I was pulled in. It sounded like an entertaining book. I was disappointed. I had to force myself to finish it. I don't think that the characters weren't built up very well and there was not a big climax at all. There were some unrealistic situations, but I did like how the book ended. I really wanted to like this book, but it just didn't work out. I really like the cover. It is really intriguing and made me want to read the book. It fits in the story very well. There was a little bit of language and mature content. This wouldn't be the first book I recommend. I gave this book two and half coffee cups.
