I’m excited to be a part of the Vigilante blog tour! Thank you Hannah/Irish Banana and Harlequin Teen for letting me be a part of this. I put together a look for the main character, Hadley. She’s everything you want in a lady vigilante, so I hope you love the new Looks From Books below. When you’re done, scroll down to the bottom to enter the giveaway!
A brutally honest, uncompromising story about a teen girl who decides to take matters into her own hands.
It’s senior year, and Hadley and her best friend, Magda, should be starting the year together. Instead, Magda is dead and Hadley is alone. Raped at a party the year before and humiliated, Magda was driven to take her own life and Hadley is forced to see her friend’s attackers in the classroom every day. Devastated, enraged and needing an outlet for her grief, Hadley decides to get a little justice of her own.
Donning a pink ski mask and fueled by anger, Hadley goes after each of the guys one by one, planning to strip them of their dignity and social status the way they did to Magda. As the legend of the pink-masked Vigilante begins to take on a life of its own, Hadley’s revenge takes a turn for the dangerous. Could her need for vengeance lead her down a path she can’t turn back from?
ABOUT KADY CROSS:
Kady Cross is a pseudonym for USA Today bestselling author Kathryn Smith. She lives in Connecticut with her husband and a pride of cats. She likes singing with Rock Band on the 360, British guys, Vietnamese food, and makeup (she’s hopelessly addicted to YouTube makeup tutorials!). When she’s not writing Kady likes to catch up on her favorite TV shows, read a good book or make her own cosmetics.
In Vigilante, Hadley turns herself into a masked vigilante. She wears all black to stay hidden, except for her pink ski mask. The mask was a gift from her friend Magda, who is the reason Hadley is seeking revenge. It also lets people know she’s a girl, which gives her pleasure in further humiliating the misogynistic boys she is going after.
The yoga pants give Hadley maneuverability, the boots add something solid to her roundhouse kick, and the hoodie is just for the aesthetic appeal. Even though she has a ski mask, I can’t lose the image of her in a fitted hoodie from my head. I also included a dark berry color lipstick. It is another item of Magda’s that Hadley uses to write messages on the passed out bodies of her victims.
