"This isn’t a how-to-murder-your-classmates manual; it’s a ferocious, frenzied reaction to a world that has, for too long, treated women as collateral damage in stories that have been deemed more important than theirs...Jade’s first-person narrative, steeped in rage and drenched, unapologetically, with gore, moves at a relentless pace." -Booklist(Starred Review)

"This revenge fantasy told from the point of view of a rape survivor will shock and awe." -School Library Journal

"This book is not to be missed." -Paste

"Capin’s writing will seduce you with its beauty and then, when you least suspect it, slice you to the bone—just likeFoul is Fair’s captivating, vicious, entirely unforgettable heroine, Jade." - Layne Fargo, author ofTemperand co-host of Unlikeable Female Characters Podcast

"Fierce, vicious, and electric. If books had teeth,Foul Is Fairwould have fangs. Capin's language glittersdark and her writing cuts deep. Revenge is a dish best served by this deliciously unapologetic coven." - Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author ofFirsts andLast Girl Lied To

“Vicious and beautifully brutal,Foul is Fair gives a sword to every girl who has ever been a victim and makes them a warrior. This book is pulls no punches and will make anyone think twice before uttering the phrase ‘just a girl’. An unapologetic feminist battle-cry that leaves you breathless and thirsting for vengeance.” - Sonia Hartl, author ofHave a Little Faith in Me

"Foul is Fair delivers the story of a girl who snatches control back from a world that stole it away, through whatever means necessary. Hannah Capin deftly combines stunningly lyrical prose with the raw power of engulfing fury, sending a message written in blood. In a world where too many are forced into silence, this book roars back." - Sophie Gonzales, author ofThe Law of Inertia andOnly Mostly Devastated

"Jade does what uncounted sexual assault survivors have dreamed of doing--she takes matters into her own hands. What ensues is part Buffalo Bill-style revenge fantasy, part diabolically well-planned manipulation, and it's all done in lyrical prose that feels dreamy and so much like Shakespeare. A gorgeous, scorchingly emotional novel perfect for fans of Mindy McGinnis'The Female of the Species or Courtney Summers'All the Rage." - Wendy Heard, author ofHunting Annabelle andThe Kill Club and cohost of Unlikeable Female Characters podcast

Foul is Fair is a clever reimagining of Macbeth centering a teenage Lady M. It’s a dark, brutal revenge fantasy, sharply feminist and brimming with melodic prose. Capin’s sophomore novel is bloody brilliant—exceedingly bloody, and every bit as brilliant.” - Dana Mele, author ofPeople Like Us
