    One thought on “The Poison Apples”

    1. The Poison Apples is not a fairy tale book. It's a story about three girls who has one thing in common. Answer:EVIL STEPMOTHERSNow now, I know that not all stepmoms are awful but in this story, three different girls who were brought together in a boarding school have evil stepmothers. Sounds like a weepy,oh-woe-is-me story?Nah. Far from it actually. The Poison Apples is a wonderful book. I love that this book is not set as a fantasy book although I know that even though it will be written as a f [...]

    2. I'd call this a tween book because it involves 15 year olds at a boarding school in the mountains, but nothing particularly mature happens. Alice, Reena, and Molly all start their first semester of boarding school with one thing in common: their fathers have all just married horrible women. Eventually, after attempting to hide their freaky families from each other, they discover their common thread and form a club called the Poison Apples in which to commiserate and plot revenge. The storyline i [...]

    3. First of all, this is NOT a fairy-tale retelling, so don't pick it up expecting fantasy. It is friendship story about three girls who meet in boarding school and, after some initial friction, bond after discovering that they all have horrible stepmothers. The blurb on mine implied that they join forces to get revenge, which is initially true but not really the focus of the story, which is about becoming a better friend and supporting one another. I liked that the girls have different personaliti [...]

    4. Raise your hand if you have an evil stepmother. Alice, Reena and Molly all do. For various reasons, each girl finds herself at a posh boarding school in rural Massachusetts and each tries her best to pretend she doesn’t come from a messed-up, broken family. When they find each other, they discover they no longer have to suffer alone or in silence, and the Poison Apples are born. The book is narrated by all three teens in alternating chapters and divided roughly into three sections: the introdu [...]

    5. The element of the ridiculous--not the fantastic, which the fairy-tale title suggests, but the ridiculous--is used really well here. On the surface this tells the story of Alice, Reena, and Molly, all of whom are saddled with newly acquired stepmothers and consequently enroll at Putnam Mount McKinsey boarding school. While initial first impressions cause a few issues, they eventually bond and form a group called the poison apples, vowing to take revenge on their evil stepmothers. Although each m [...]

    6. I bought this book in middle school and just never got around to reading it so I feel like my middle school self would've appreciated this much more than my adult self. This book wasally bad. There was basically nothing redeemable about this story and I can honestly only recall one thing in the whole story that made me enjoy it even slightly.So this story follows three modern day teenage girls who all end up with "evil" stepmothers and they all start attending the same boarding school and bondin [...]

    7. Absolutely loved this novel! A great YA book of three 15 year old girls sent to boarding schools after their fathers hook up with the step mothers from hell. Molly is a dictionary nerd, Alice is depressed from her mother's death and the beautiful Reena is struggling to understand how her father wound up with a Yoga instructor half his age.Lily Archer nailed the adolescent experience of young girls becoming women while their parents descend into adolescence. Highly recommended.

    8. I had read several rave reviews of this book, so I really couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Unfortunately, it didn't deliver. While the beginning was witty and funny, the end fell flat, neatly wrapping everything up in a pretty little bow, which, I guess, some people enjoy, but I was left disappointed.

    9. You know how after you've had a book for a while you kind of start to expect a certain hmmm I don't know how to put this vibe from the book? Well and after a while you kind of think you know how the book will be? Well this book isn't what I expected but that's actually a really good thing! ( I expected it to be just ok) Since , as you know, I was necessarily anticipating this book but I wasn't dreading it either so anyways I was having a difficult time picking a a book to read so I started at t [...]

    10. This book was alright, but I didn't really realize it was a bit on the younger-aged YA spectrum for me. I think I'd have liked it more had I read it while I was 13 or 14 as it is, it kept me busy for half a day reading on the dock at the cottage.The premise of this book-- three step-daughters with evil stepmothers want to plot revenge and reclaim their lives-- was good. There were funny parts. But the actual revenge and the Poison Apples society itself doesn't even come about until about the las [...]

    11. This was pretty good. Surprisingly good, actually. The writing was good, the characters were written well, and the girls were relatable to, if not, real life. It was a nice read and was a bit awkward at times. Not the writing was awkward but what the character(s) did in the book. Once in a while they would make me want to slap my forehead against the wall of embarrassment for them even though I know it's all fake. :) One thing that did bother me though was that I felt like the author was more fo [...]

    12. The writing is fine and the plot pretty good, but some of the material was inappropriate for teen fiction. Several comments about popular 15 year olds having only had sex with 4 guys and trying to increase that number seemed to imply that is ideal teen behavior. None of the main characters had even kissed a boy, but the implications from other characters really turned me off. I would never recommend it to a teenager. However, this book does address issues of having a "step mother" quite well. Th [...]

    13. Although this book was enjoyable, I feel as though Molly, Reena and Alice were kind of pathetic in that their step mothers weren't really that bad. I mean, sure, they got sent to boarding school but what's so bad about that? Persnally, I've always wanted to go to boarding school. And anyways, how old were thesea irks? They seemed like kids but they can't have been seeing as they did a lot of very dodgy things which kids should not do. It was quite funny at times though which is why I'm giving it [...]

    14. I read this book in one sitting on a Sunday afternoon. For some reason I expected it to be paranormal fiction of some sort, but it's not. It's reasonably entertaining realistic fiction about 3 girls at boarding school who bond over the fact that they have crazy stepmothers and screwed up families. I think it suffers a bit from lack of character development from focusing on three main characters, and it lags a bit after a good beginning. So, it's not great but it is a quick, mostly fun read that [...]

    15. It wastesy. It wasn't a great piece of literature. It wasn't even a book that made me think. Frankly, I was almost embarrassed to read some parts because they were just so bad. It was an okay read, despite the fact that I noticed a few errors that editors should have caught before publishing (no, I didn't have an ARC). I will not be reading this again, but might recommend it to middle schoolers who don't like their stepmoms.

    16. This book has a great concept, but the changing point of view and "teenage banter" quickly become annoying. Three girls, who are ethnically and economically different, are all sent to a boarding school by their Evil Step-Mothers. The premise is formulaic, and the book becomes boring in the middle. The ending wasn't thought out and leaves the reader wondering why they started the story.

    17. Romanzo grazioso ma non grandioso.Storia a tratti esilarante ma non esaltante.Insomma, un libro che non lascia molto al lettore ma non per questo si tratta di un brutto libro semplicemente è una storiella abbastanza dimenticabile su un trio di ragazze appena iscritte ad una prestigiosa scuola privata che da qualche tempo sono alle prese con una matrigna cattiva.Il problema di questo libro è tutto nelle sue tempistiche: capisco si debba creare un background ed è stato piacevole leggere di Alic [...]

    18. I picked this book up in a charity shop and the blurb made it seem fun and promising. The blurb turned out to be the best part of the boom. It was boring, none of the characters were particularly likeable and the posion apples revenge plan was the book equivalent of damp lettuce, bland, boring and unappetising. The ending was terribly rushed, everything about it was just bad. I'd have found reading the back of a shampoo bottle more interesting than this book. The Poison Apples is the literary eq [...]

    19. This story was not what I expected. The three main characters all have evil stepmother's and create a Poison Apple's club. The storyline was a little predictable. The characters were one-dimensional. However, I did joy the difference in the three girls and see them come together to create an evil plan. Although their plans don't work they end up learning an important lesson. I'm glad I finally read this novel for the reading challenge.

    20. Enjoyable first half. It's a pity it took 170 pages to get to the reason behind the chance meeting of these girls who have similar shared experiences. Part two of the story felt rushed and anti-climatic. It needed nurturing. #sigh

    21. I read this book for the book-tube-athon. It was very cute. But I fee like it should have focused on what horrible fathers they had instead of how evil the 'stepmoms' were.

    22. This book was an easy and fun read. Story line was pretty good and the characters were realistic I liked the multiple POV in this book.

    23. Talk about your spoiled kids! These girls come from different walks of life but they all wind up at a prestigious school. Then they spend their time complaining about their stepmothers and how horrible they all are. Really? They’re stepmothers may be silly or mean but they’re not absolutely cruel. Then the book does an abrupt volte-face and we find the girls learning that their stepmothers aren’t so bad, that they’re human beings and have feelings, etc etc. So that part of the story is a [...]

    24. You can read this review and others on my blog at awriterswife-bcraySo, this book is called the Poison Apples and there is a blurb on the cover that says “Evil Stepmothers, BEWARE” and on the back of the book it says they make a cunning plan to exact their revenge. So I was excited to read a fun semi-considered fairytale twist about these girls who have a grand plan for revenge against their evil stepmothers. I expected the plot to be about the revenge plan and then of course the girls reali [...]

    25. Alice, Reena, and Molly all wind up at an exclusive boarding school where they discover they have at least one thing in common – evil stepmothers Who Must Be Taught a Lesson. So they form a secret club – the Poison Apples – to commiserate over the changes these horrible women have wrought in their lives and to find a way to exact revenge. Alice’s stepmother, R is a prominent actress who has never forgiven Alice for not being thrilled over her marriage to Alice’s father. Reena’s stepm [...]

    26. No, no, no! This can't be happening! It can't just end this way! I refuse to accept it!!! *stares disbelievingly at the blank ages after the last chapter, willing invisible words to suddenly appear at them* WHAT?! Seriously? And it had started so well too!Three girls with evil stepmothers befriend each other in a boarding school (whoo-hoo, boarding schools!) that's behind a mountain and kind of remote. They start a group called the Poison Apples that are against evil stepmothers. They even hatch [...]

    27. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading fiction books to start off with. This book is more like a cinderalla story. Three girls meet in a bording school and share similar stories together. They all have evil step mothers and got sent off to bording school. Many teens out there have evil stepmothers and get treated bad but don't say anything they just let it happen. These girls try to keep it away from each other because they don't realize that they have the same things in common [...]

    28. What first attracted me to The Poison Apples when I saw it sitting on a table in a discount book store, was the book’s design. The cover is gorgeous and eye-catching, the title is great, and the edges of the pages are a bright red. After the reading the synopsis and discovering that this was a loose fairytale retelling (very, very loose with no particular tale in mind), I knew I had to have it. The Poison Apples was a lot of fun and definitely worth the read, but didn’t wow me like I wanted [...]

    29. “ The Poison Apples”, by Lily Archer is where three girls somehow have ended up in the same school under the same fate. They have ended up in the same place because they all have stepmothers. I know what you're thinking, it's another book just like Cinderella, but its not. They storyline is not even the same like Cinderella. Alice, Reena, and Molly don’t even live close to one another. They all have problems with their stepmothers. One is that they don’t really like them and the rather h [...]
