Trailer Reveal: THIS IS W.A.R.: Madge

Happy July! There's a heat wave across the country and to celebrate (I mean, to celebrate with more than a fine selection of box fans in every room of the house) we're hosting the exclusive reveal of a book trailer for Lisa and Laura Roecker's THIS IS W.A.R., on shelves tomorrow!

Four girls want to destroy the Gregory family after their best friend is murdered. Soho Teen has put together a trailer for each revenge-seeking dame. Here's Madge's story:

You can see Lina's story at The Book Smugglers. More reveals to come!

This is W.A.R.
This is not a story of forgiveness…
The mystery of their best friend’s murder drives four girls to destroy the Gregory family. Emily Thorne would be proud.
Everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club saw Willa Ames-Rowan climb into a boat with James Gregory, the Club’s heir apparent.
And everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club watched him return. Alone.
They all know he killed her. But none of them will say a word. The Gregory family is very, very good at making problems go away.
Enter the W.A.R.-the war to avenge Willa Ames-Rowan. Four girls. Four very different motives for justice and revenge, and only one rule: destroy the Gregory family at any cost.

  1. Cool trailer! It reminds me of a ripped from the headlines Law & Order episode! Which is a good thing, or more specifically, my favorite thing! :)
