" Revenge is best when served slowly"

#1 - Sierra's Story by Dandi Daley Mackall, 2004, Thirsty, a division of Tyndale House Publishing
Degrees of Betrayal: Sierra's Story
Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Teens 14+
Summary: Sierra is in her senior year of high school, she's got a great boyfriend, a great best friend, and plenty of money to spend on her passion: great shoes. Life is perfect. Until... she overhears a conversation in the restroom at a football game. Her best friend and her boyfriend have been sneaking around behind her back. Sierra gets angry: VERY angry. In the process all three are in a car accident, and Sierra temporarily loses her memory. When she regains it, she begins a process to make her friends pay for what they did to her by sneakily taking away what matters most to them.
Notes: Sierra is careful, calculating and very cold. This book is VERY realistic fiction. It's not really a fun read. It makes you think though. Sierra's hurt at the betrayal is so real. Anyone who has experienced that kind of hurt can relate to her feelings. It's very well written.
Recommendation Scale: 4.5
