“This debut novel for teen fans of John Green captures perfectly the exquisite pain of being the outcast. Celia Door begins high school with the single goal of revenge for an act of cruelty the previous year that left her isolated and vulnerable. But Celia doesn't count on Drake, the new boy in school, and the unexpected way he changes her life, or what she does to his. Believable, hilarious, and heartbreaking, The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door is a treat for readers!”
-- Leslie Reiner, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL

"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, perfect for fans of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and "Will Grayson, Will Grayson."
