Review: Karma Club

Title:  The Karma Club
Author: Jessica Brody

From GoodReads, "Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. It’s that mysterious, powerful force that brings harmony to the universe. You know—do good things and you will be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what’s coming to you. A sort of cosmic balancing act.

But when Mason Brooks, Maddy’s boyfriend of two years, gets caught tongue-wrestling with Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them—except that they wind up the hot new couple of Colonial High School, it seems like Karma has officially left Maddy in the lurch. That’s why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade, decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization whose sole purpose is to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind. Whether they’re modifying Heather Campbell’s acne cream as part of “Operation Butterface,” or righting a few wrongs when it comes to Angie and Jade’s own slimy exes, they know they’re just doing what Karma should have done in the first place. They’re taking care of one another.

Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe. Because it turns out, when you mess with Karma, Karma messes back. Now Maddy must find a way to balance her life for good, even as everything around her seems to be toppling to the ground."

     I had heard of karma before but I guess never really thought about what it truly was.  As I read about karma I began to think of how karma has affected my own life.  I love books that make you self reflect!  The main character is great!  Her full name is Madison Kasparkova, but is known as Maddy.  Even though Maddy’s problems are typical teen problems, I love stories about high school drama and how it is handled.  Maddy was deeply hurt and decides to do something about it.  Her intentions are really good, but in the end she realizes there are rules to karma.  During Maddy’s quest, she gets to know a great guy named Spencer Cooper.  Spencer becomes a great friend and then some!
     My favorite things about the book are all things that Maddy’s learns along the way. She learns what great friends she has, just because you have money doesn’t mean you are snobby person, you can’t control others karma just your own and honesty is the best policy! This is the kind of book that will leave you smiling in the end!    I have to admit it made me realize some things too!!!
