The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door by: Karen Finneyfrock




Synopsis
That’s the day the trouble started. 
The trouble that nearly ruined my life. 
The trouble that turned me Dark. 
The trouble that begs me for revenge.

Celia Door enters her freshman year of high school with giant boots, dark eyeliner, and a thirst for revenge against Sandy Firestone, the girl who did something unspeakable to Celia last year.
But then Celia meets Drake, the cool new kid from New York City who entrusts her with his deepest, darkest secret. When Celia’s quest for justice threatens her relationship with Drake, she’s forced to decide which is sweeter: revenge or friendship.
This debut novel from Karen Finneyfrock establishes her as a bright, bold, razor-sharp new voice for teens.

Review:

Karen is a wonderful writer. She gives us a fresh new story that is nothing like what we are used to, but tells the story in a way that makes us love it just the same! I loved this book from beginning to end and laughed more than I have in quite some time. Thanks for a wonderfully delightful read Karen!
