On the first day of high school, Celia Door is determined to settle a score from the previous year. Opening with a clear, markedly sardonic voice, narrator Erin Moon asserts the singular personality of "Celia the Dark." Moon balances Celia's focused rage toward her judgmental classmates with her developing friendship with Drake, the new kid at school. Two secrets connect the pair and define their triumphs. Amid struggles at home and school, Celia finds refuge in her incisive poetry. Moon has an ear for Celia's lyricism, revealing Celia's self-awareness and vulnerability. Similarly, Drake draws inspiration from DREAM IT! DO IT!, an overly enthusiastic self-help book that Celia uses as a guide. With a steady voice and well-timed inflection, Moon guards Drake's earnestness, preventing caricature. A.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
