The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate
Publication Date: November 6th 2010
Publisher: Corgi Books
Format: Paperback
Page Count: 288



A steamy Southern beauty makes one fatal mistake.

Natalie Hargrove would kill to be her high school’s Palmetto Princess. But her boyfriend Mike King doesn’t share her dream and risks losing the honor of Palmetto Prince to Natalie’s nemesis, Justin Balmer. So she convinces Mike to help play a prank on Justin. . . one that goes terribly wrong. They tie him to the front of the church after a party—when they arrive the next morning, Justin is dead.

From blackmail to buried desire, dark secrets to darker deeds, Natalie unravels. She never should’ve messed with fate. Fate is the one thing more twisted than Natalie Hargrove.

Cruel Intentions meets Macbeth in this seductive, riveting tale of conscience and consequence.




I bought this book when it first came out here in Australia. I read the first half of it way back then in 2010, but have yet to finish it. I'm not sure why I put it down to start with or why I haven't picked it up again ... I think that I forgot it was there.
