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.

“Finneyfrock writes poetry with muscular verve and narrative push. The depth and breadth suggested in just a few polished images placed next to each other will make you reconsider what poetry can do.”
~Paul Constant, The Stranger.

“Finneyfrock’s work strikes the perfect tonal balance of humor, devastation and real storytelling-never just using metaphor for metaphor’s sake.”
~Amber Tamblyn, Bust Magazine.

“Karen Finneyfrock is a rare example of a slam poet who writes excellent poetry,” ~ Paul Constant, The Stranger.

Karen Finneyfrock contributed a poem titled “Newer Colossus.” I’ll remember that night not for the soup or song but as the first time I heard that poem. The poets of 1968, mostly now demised, would have loved it, this evidence that their legacy is alive.
~ Regina Hackett, Art Critic Seattle Post Intelligencer
