Lizzie Lane is used to life at the top of the food chain.

Her near-perfect life is ruined when Rachel, a girl she socially destroyed, exacts her revenge by getting Lizzie in trouble for cheating on a test. Friendless and facing detention, Lizzie obsesses over finding the perfect revenge. When Stella, Lizzie's strange new neighbor, teaches Lizzie about magick, Lizzie can't resist creating a revenge spell. But she forgets the "rule of three," that whatever spell you cast comes back on you three-fold, and her zit spell backfires with dramatic results. When she asks for help from Stella's Baba, the only advice she gets is to "write the lesson of the zit on her heart." Can Lizzie find a way to teach Rachel a lesson without causing permanent disfigurement to herself?

"Denman has constructed more than a light-hearted diversion for readers. There is a literary sophistication to her story that will introduce readers to elements such as foreshadowing and metaphor…Good-natured and well-written, Perfect Revenge is a solid antidote to the sensational works for teens spawned in this Gossip Girl era. Recommended."

– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"Dripping in humour and satire, Perfect Revenge shows that revenge isn't the best way to solve a problem...High appeal for the adolescent female audience with its teen angst, relationships issues, and humourous approach to conflict resolution."
