Venomous by Christopher Krovatin

Venomous was a very good book. It's about a boy with a very serious anger problem. His name is Locke Vinette and his anger is known as 'the Venom'. It takes him over and he does things normal people just wouldn't do, violent things. Don't get me wrong - the people who suffer at the Venom's wrath pretty much deserve it but it gets Locke into a lot of trouble and scares his friends and family. But Locke's life is about to change all because of one pretty, broken Goth girl named Renée.
