The Society reminds me of the movie the skulls in many ways except it is ya and not adult. We have the secret society that shuns others and has everyone wanting in. A society that gives you the ticket to your future but is also cruel and gets away with alot. We have the girl on the outside who was once one of the wanna bets for this society. Her life is turned upside down by her dad and she is now on the outside and being ostracized.
Ostracized by ex best friend Jessica who runs the Society and after one to many humiliating moments Sam decides to get back at Jessica in a pretty diabolical way. She intends to have Jessica feel the humiliation and shame that she has felt. How? By messing with Hell week of the Society.
You can see and in a way understand why Sam has to do this but you don’t really like it. And neither does the sweet and amazing Jeremy who has been with Sam no matter what. He is her rock but when he sees this plan they do drift a little. He can’t support this and you can’t blame him.
During this time where they are apart a little Sam does make some very bad decisions. She lets go of herself but in a way if she didn’t she wouldn’t grow and learn more about herself. It is in this time she meets Ransom and while with him turns into someone she doesn’t like. She also learns that she loves Jeremy.
As each plan is enacted, Sam loses a little bit more of herself but gains something as well. She learns that she wants to be better. Someone that is strong. She does give up on her revenge but the act may be to late. When all is done, she does learn to become a better person and does the right thing. She even is lucky to get Jeremy. Jeremy who even when he wasn’t there for her was in so many ways. he is her support rock and what was missing as she journeyed into her own dark world only to see him waiting for her at the end.
This is a interesting and intriguing look at bullying and how some can make you feel like nothing when you are really something. How you sometimes can break and let others take control only to need to feel some kind of retribution but realize that that is not who you are. To find the strength to become the person that you are meant to be and not let others win and bring you down. To find the light at the end of the darkness and have the one person there at the end that shows you love, patience and kindness. This Sam had in Jeremy and her Aunt and with those two by her side she was able to find herself and who she wanted to be. A well written interesting take on bullying, revenge, doing the right thing and surviving only to come out stronger.
