The Karma Club by Jessica Brody

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.
This was a good book. It wasn't anything super special, but I enjoyed reading it. I liked the characters and the idea of karma is a good plot for a book. The only thing I didn't really care for with this book was that I thought the plot was a bit predictable. I was 1/4 of the way through the book when I realized that I already knew how the book was going to end. I didn't want to finish the book, but I did. I really did enjoy the romance that was in the book. It was nice to see someone who has a particular stereotype act in a manner that isn't stereotypical at all. I would read more by this author.
