Book Club No. 2: The Karma Club

The Karma Club by Jessica Brody is a good book, but half of the book is kind of dry. There were times that I felt like I was forcing myself to keep reading. I’m glad that I did keep reading though because it turned out to have a good ending! Here is the summary of the book that is located on the book:

“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, decided 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 Butter Face,” or righting a few wrongs when it comes to Angie’s 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 that 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.”

For some reason, reading this book inspires me. It inspires me to want to go to a spiritual center for individual growth, it inspires me to read books about karma, it inspires me to meditate, and lastly, it inspires me to do another writing project in the near future… :-)

So, what do you think of Karma?
