Furious by Jill Wolfson. I got this ARC from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. The book will be released on April 16. Here is the description:
We were only three angry high school girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephanie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world.Teaser:
We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious.
Yes, that’s us. The three Greek Furies, come to life, ready to take our revenge on everyone who deserves it. And who doesn't deserve it, really? We’re done with chances. We are angry. The Furies have come to town.
I see her arm swing back and then forward. If I have the time to see it, why don't I move away? Why don't I block it? Why don't I defend myself? I feel her palm hard across my face. What she just did, hitting me, that's against the law. She's not allowed to do that. But it doesn't matter. The law is meaningless. Who will enforce it for me? Who will take my side against hers?
