Review

"Karen Finneyfrock is an amazing poet so it is no surprise that her first novel is poetic. It is also hilarious, exciting and as painful as anybody's teenage years. Read it, please."
—Sherman Alexie, National Book Award-Winning author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time IndianSherman Alexie, National Book Award-Winning author

"Karen Finneyfrock is an amazing poet so it is no surprise that her first novel is poetic. It is also hilarious, exciting and as painful as anybody's teenage years. Read it, please."
—Sherman Alexie, National Book Award-Winning author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

“I loved The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door! Celia is a quirky and unique character whose journey—through friendship and secrets and chocolate—will stay with readers long after they close the book.”
—Ruta Sepetys, New York Times bestselling author of Between Shades of Grey

“What debut novelist Finneyfrock captures perfectly is the powerlessness of being a teen.... Illuminated with flashes of humor, Celia’s narration is expressive, and her poems, which are sprinkled throughout the novel, elucidate her emotional state with grace and specificity.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Finneyfrock gives Celia a drily funny voice that keeps the narrative zipping along.”
Publishers Weekly

"Finneyfrock weaves characters and plotlines into an entertaining and thought-provoking mix. She succeeds in making her debut much more than a “problem novel” by creating a memorable outsider who is articulate, funny, and brave."
SLJ

"Suggest this to fans of David Levithan’s and A. S. King’s books, as well as allteens who feel outside the frenzy of high-school social life."
Booklist

"Readers will like Celia and pull for her to learn that being true to herself is the sweetest revenge of all."
Bookpage.com

"This well-written, engaging, and ultimately hopeful book offers sympathetic characters with depth and interest.... Many readers will see themselves reflected in these pages."
VOYA
