Book Review - The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate


Natalie Hargrove is a high school student who has spent years planning and plotting to become the next prom queen. She got everything she needs to win including, a vicious streak and a ruthlessness to stop at nothing to accomplish her goal.

Things take a turn for the worst, when someone threatens her plans. She convinces her boyfriend, Mike, to play a prank on Justin. Natalie is happy that everything is going to according to plan except when the prank goes horribly wrong. Natalie decides that she won't let anything stop her dreams, even if it means hiding a few dark secrets.

I thought the book was an okay read. It reminds me of those spicy books, I would read as a young adult that had adult content references but, still being appropriate for kids. The book started off strong but, the lack of character development and boring characters with a predictable plot made the book a bit boring in the second half. I can see  some young adults liking this book but, as an adult I have read way better quality books.
