Everyone knows the legends about the cursed girl--Isabel, the one the señoras whisper about. They say she has green skin and grass for hair, and she feeds on the poisonous plants that fill her family’s Caribbean island garden. Some say she can grant wishes; some say her touch can kill.

Seventeen-year-old Lucas lives on the mainland most of the year but spends summers with his hotel-developer father in Puerto Rico. He’s grown up hearing stories about the cursed girl, and he wants to believe in Isabel and her magic. When letters from Isabel begin mysteriously appearing in his room the same day his new girlfriend disappears, Lucas turns to Isabel for answers--and finds himself lured into her strange and enchanted world. But time is running out for the girl filled with poison, and the more entangled Lucas becomes with Isabel, the less certain he is of escaping with his own life.

In lieu of sharing my review (ooh unintentional rhyme), I decided to go with a playlist. Because that's always the best thing, in my opinion.

As Luca Knight moves to Puerto Rico with his father for the summer, he's only expecting a few months of fun with his friends and moonlight romance with a few girls. But the stories of the senoras haunt the land. They speak of a girl with grass for hair and green skin. So when Lucas soon discovers the girl is not a myth, and is in fact, a tortured, sick girl named Isabel, he tries his best to help her.

But when girls around the island increasingly begin disappearing, Lucas's fears manifest and someone he originally trusted, might turn out to be his greatest enemy.

In no particular order, here's my super special A Fierce & Subtle Poison-themed playlist. If you think I possibly missed a song, and/or just have to add something, be sure to lemme know!

Alexandria Prep is about to be exposed.

Senior spring was supposed to mean sleeping through class and partying with friends. But for Anna Soler, it’s going to be a lonely road. She’s just been dumped by her perfect basketball star boyfriend—with no explanation. Anna’s closest friends, the real ones she abandoned while dating him, are ignoring her. The endearing boy she’s always had a complicated friendship with is almost too sympathetic.

But suddenly Anna isn’t the only one whose life has been upended. Someone is determined to knock the kings and queens of the school off their thrones: one by one, their phones get hacked and their personal messages and photos are leaked. At first it’s funny—people love watching the dirty private lives of those they envy become all too public.

Then the hack…
