Locke Vinetti is a teenager with an anger problem. And not just any average anger problem either. Locke calls his fury "the venom" and it's bent on destroying eveything important in Locke's life.

Locke is on a collision course to destruction when he meets Renee. She's the edgy, gothy girl of his dreams. She could be Locke's chance to escape the blackness. But Renee's dealing with her own sordid past - and the venom is not letting go without a fight.

My Thoughts:
Venomous is an intelligent, thoughtful book about growing up. Locke is an accessible character who experiences emotions that we can all identify with. He is determined to fight "the venom." In the meantime, he's got a lot of growing up to do. With the help of his best friend Randall and new friends Casey and Renee, Locke begins to unlock the complex inner workings of his angry mind.
