The Society

the-society-500x700

Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Teen Publishing for the advanced reading copy of The Society by Jodie Andrefski! The Society is a wonderful, trying to find yourself, coming of age story. Jeremy is a great and loyal friend to Samantha (Sam). Sam needs the type of stability that Jeremy’s friendship gives her, since her family has been broken apart and she is relentlessly bullied because of acts her father has committed. Now she wants revenge. Sam lives with her Aunt Loretta, who struggles with her health and dementia. Sam and Aunt Loretta have a wonderful bond and love each other unconditionally; which they both need. While Sam is struggling with both parts excitement and guilt about her revenge, she meets a new boy, Ransom. At this time, Jeremy becomes upset at Sam for her revenge plot and doesn’t want her to become a bully also. Jeremy believes Sam is above that. I don’t want to give anything away, but I do recommend reading The Society to find out what happens with Sam, Jeremy, Ransom and the bullies. I enjoyed the angst and the dynamic relationships. This story also sheds light on unconditional love and support and also realizing our own importance and self worth.
