The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door
By: Karen Finneyfrock
I think we’ve all had a Sandy Firestone in our lives- a person who seems to go out of their way to try and make your life miserable. Well, that is exactly how Celia has felt towards Sandy since their middle school years. And now that they have reached their freshmen year of high school, Celia thought that maybe Sandy would find a new victim in a larger school, but unfortunately for Celia, that just didn’t happen.
When Celia finally reveals just the amount of tormenting she received from Sandy and her minions, I think all readers can connect in some way. Luckily, as her freshmen year continues, Celia meets Drake, who comes with a slew of secrets himself, but stands truly as a best friend to Celia during difficult times. Celia finds herself writing poetry to help clear her mind and get her emotions out, but what happens if that poetry falls into the wrong hands? What happens while her parents are going through tough times, her best friend moves away, and she tries to help Drake uncover his secrets?
A smart, well-written book that I couldn’t put down!
