Premeditated by Josin L.McQuein Review



PremeditatedMy favourite quote on revenge is this one by Douglas Horton:  While seeking revenge, dig two graves-one for yourself. This book is supposed to be about revenge and it is somehow.

When Dinah learns that her cousin Claire has tried to commit suicide and is lying in a hospital bed in a coma, swears to take revenge on the boy who made Claire suffer and is willing to go to any lengths to do it. She is determined to ruin his life ,however, things don't turn out to be the way she expected.

Life is not a bowl of cherries for the character of this book ,whether they come from money or not.Some of them have parental issues ,lack of self-esteem and mental problems  to deal with . So they are not the usual perfect youngsters who appear in some YA novels.Revenge is therefore  just a part of the plot.


Did I think that the book was going to be much darker?  Yes, I did.
Does it really matter to me? No , it doesn't.
Is the book shallow? No , it isn't.

Dinah has a really strong personality which makes her likable and her sworn enemy at school Chandy is in my opinion her alter ego.Chandi is what Dinah would have been like had she not had her father's love and her will power.

The way the book ends is not difficult to predict if you pay attention to the clues,however, this doesn't make it less interesting.In her blog Josin L.McQuein writes about an alternative ending for the book, read it if you are curious.
