Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. Do good things and you'll be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what you deserve.

But when Maddy’s boyfriend cheats on her, nothing bad comes his way. That’s why Maddy starts the Karma Club,  to clean up the messes that the universe has left behind. Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe.

It turns out Karma often has plans of its own.

I’ve read this book during the Read-a-thon. And although I haven’t picked any YA in the past few months, this one was refreshing and hilarious. I had so much fun with this book.

Maddy was a great voice for this story. After she finds her boyfriend with the most popular girl at school, she is completely crushed. Her mother takes her to a spiritual retreat, and there she finds out the concept of Karma. That is the moment she decides that Karma needs a little help.
“I’m a getting to that,” I promise. “Basically, I think it’s time to create a new Karma tradition. One that’s just our own. But that still follows the basic principles.”

Her two best friends Jade and Angie were cool too. The three of them founded the secret Karma club. The club was founded so they could restore the equilibrium of the universe by getting back at their three ex-boyfriends who wronged them but gotten away with no consequences whatsoever. The idea was good I shall say. I got a bit inspired here. A shout to the people out there who wronged me.. watch your back. Just saying.
“A pact that only we know about. Like a secret, members-only club. A Karma Club. Whose sole purpose is to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind.”

The things these girls came up with. Oh. My. God. It was so so funny. I found myself laughing out loud so many times. Hilarious, really. You will have to pick the book up for yourself for that, as I will spoil nothing. But trust me here, you won’t regret picking this book up.

The romance part was sweet, but the main focus of this book is the friendship between Maddy, Jade and Angie, and their quest to rights the wrongs. And you know what? I was cheering for these girls to make it. Because who of us did not find themselves at some point in life in their position? I certainly did. And honestly, I wish I had friends like that and done something like what they did in The Karma Club. Cause although we know that good deeds are rewarded and bad deeds are punished, lets face it, sometimes it doesn’t seem like that. Far from it.

So to conclude this review, pick up The Karma Club. It’s a fantastic and completely hilarious YA, and it can teach you a thing or two about consequences of your actions, and become a better person.
