Lauren Kate's irresistible first novel, The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove, features the most ruthlessly ambitious heroine since Lady Macbeth. She is also the author of the US bestsellers Fallen and Torment.


The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate

Natalie is utterly determined to cement her position at the top of the high school social ladder by becoming prom queen. When it looks like an interfering ex-boyfriend might get in her way, she devises a little prank to humiliate him. But when the prank goes devastatingly wrong, Natalie starts to lose control of her life. Caught in a web of dark secrets, shame and abuse of power, it's not guilt that eventually defeats Natalie. It's fate: the only thing she can't control...

Lots of adjectives can be applied to this novel - mean, smutty, decadent - all of them compliments * Booklist * Lauren Kate's first novel is an entertaining high-school thriller that's fairly loosely based on Macbeth. A fun read for fans of this talented author * The Bookbag * Think Macbeth meets Gossip Girl -- Natasha Harding * The Sun * I enjoyed this book very much; it's Twilight turned High School Musical (minus the singing). I would reccomend this book to anyone I know, and I am definitely going to read the other books written by Lauren Kate -- Chelsie Davies * South Wales Argus *
