Reading Round-up 2013: Week 12

Posted on: April 22, 2013

(why yes, we did skip week 11. I didn’t manage to finish any books that week.)

The only thing sweet about Celia Door is the revenge she plans to get on the classmates who have been tormenting her for months.  Friends aren’t in her plan, only retribution.  But when new kid Drake arrives in her neighborhood, Celia gains an expected ally.  Will he assist in her revenge, or distract her from her plan?

My overall reaction to this book was: meh.  There were some good parts, and some questionable parts, but mostly it just didn’t grab me. Bullying is an important and timely issue though, and it wasn’t any of the parts of the book that were relevant to that topic that were fail-y.
