The Beginner's Guide to Revenge
About the book
Two friends. One book of revenge. Zero consequences?
As a soldier's daughter, Romola's been to six schools in eight years, always having to make new friends … and now enemies. Meanwhile, Sebastian's mum is about to make the biggest mistake of their lives, unless Sebastian can find his dad in time to stop her.
Thrown together by chance, these two thirteen-year-olds set out to even the score. But once that big old ball of revenge starts rolling down the hill, there's not an awful lot they can do to stop it … or is there?<
About the author
Marianne Musgrove wrote her first full-length novel at the age of eleven: a romantic thriller featuring her unfortunate classmates. Although the unpublished manuscript met with only localised acclaim, she never gave up her dream of becoming an author.
A descendant of King Henry VIII's librarian, you could say books are in her blood! Marianne grew up in Sydney, before studying English, law and social work (which she made her career for several years) in Adelaide.
Marianne's first children's novel, The Worry Tree, won the 2008 Australian Family Therapists Award for Children's Literature and has been shortlisted for three other awards.
