Cookies younger brother, Danny holds Miss Hartley, her despised gym teacher responsible. Blue Vengeance follows Danny through a Winnipeg summer and fall, as he plots to kill her with a well-chosen stone and a slingshot. Janine S?n?cal, a girl who had been Cookies friend, and who harbours her share of secrets, insinuates herself into his plans as his accomplice.The connection between Danny and Janine is complicated by his growing love for her, and her fascination with an older boy, Rock Sand, who has his own secret that links him to their deadly scheme. Dannys father is long gone, and his mother suffers from debilitating fatigue and pain ? symptoms of fibrositis. In some ways their roles are reversed as he takes over the meal-making and other chores. But her illness and self-medicated state free Danny from certain restraints traditionally put upon a young teenager by a parent?like murder.
