A girl meets a wolf.
And a wolf meets his match.
Beatrix Cruz - Bee for short - has exactly one goal; kick her dad's severe depression in the ass. She's got a foolproof plan;
1. Get into the elite high school Lakecrest Preparatory on a scholarship
2. Study like crazy
3. Graduate into NYU and become a shrink
Nothing can stand in her way - not even Lakecrest's rich, hot, and notorious Blackthorn brothers. Not Fitz Blackthorn, with his flirting and his elite computer hacking, not Burn Blackthorn, with his intimidating height and emotionless face, and certainly not sinfully handsome Wolf Blackthorn, who hands out 'red cards' to students who displease him, and expels the ones who keep doing it.
But when Bee stands up for a student, she pisses off Wolf, and he's suddenly itching to pull her scholarship from underneath her. To keep it, Bee strikes a deal with the devil - father Blackthorn himself; spy on Mr. Blackthorn's sons, become friends with them, and learn their secrets in exchange for staying at Lakecrest.
Betraying the Blackthorn brothers' trust is supposed to be easy.
Becoming friends with the Blackthorn boys makes it hard.
And falling in love with Wolf makes it impossible.
Beatrix Cruz isn’t like all of the other students at Lakecrest. She’s not one of the precious moneyed students that crowd the campus. She’s what’s known as a “Scholarshipper” and no one likes to remind her of that fact more than the Blackthorns.
Bernard, Fitzwilliam and Wolfgang Blackthorn haunt the halls with their beauty and their arrogance. But it’s the one that everyone calls “Wolf” that makes her heart race and her blood boil.
Where the hell was I? Oh, right. Wolfgang Blackthorn, and how he ruined my life.
Wolfgang Alexander Blackthorn is just as pompous as his name. With his dark hair and ever knowing gaze, he’s out to make Bee’s life a living hell. Standing up to him was her first mistake and then daring to fall in love with him was simply unforgivable.
"Why are you acting like this?” I asked. “Why do you give a shit at all? I'm just the scholarshipper to you."
Burn Before Reading is so much more than what we expected from just a YA book. Sara has delivered a darkly luscious and heartbreakingly poignant odyssey with characters so layered that you can’t wait to discover what’s hiding right under the surface.
You will lose yourself in the dreamlike imagery and tender love story only to find yourself wide awake in the end…

You know me, paper-and-pen. You know I absolutely despise people who have it easy. And the Blackthorns had it so easy. They were rich. They were gorgeous. And everyone liked them. They lived charmed lives.
