The Initial Insult by Mindy McGinnis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What do you get when you mix an angst-ridden Appalachian teen horror with Poe's The Cask of Amontillado?
The Initial Insult.
All told, I really enjoyed this, but then, I was in the mood for extreme cattiness, thousands of miscommunications, and the devolution from love to hate. Fortunately, this YA horror/thriller definitely fits that bill.
I won't say it is the most unique thing in the world since I've personally read something like 7 books very similar to this in the last two years, but if you have an itch you have to scratch and its name is REVENGE, then you probably ought to pick this up. I can see a few of you out there tearing up (for one reason or another) by the end of the tale.
