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.

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 : This book is amazing. It highlights many problems and situations that many tide to go through and it helps put a positive spin on how to handle those situations.

Celia is spunky and fun! When all she wants is revenge, she finds friendship and an outlet through poetry. Everything about this book is great. Celia is fun, and it takes us through her freshman year and her planning of revenge. But what if revenge isn't all it's cracked up to be, add in Drake from NYC and she has a new friend she doesn't want to lose.

This book takes us through a lot of realistic problems and Karen did an amazing job with this story.
I can't getover how much I enjoyed this book. It will have you laughing out loud in no time and just a fresh fun read in the YA genre!!!!
