Dove doesn't want to buy the perfume. She doesn't like its scent, and its name--"Venom"--frightens her. But somehow she can't stop herself. And when Dove puts it on, the perfume unleashes something that has been locked away all her life--a frightening other self she never knew existed. From the bestselling author of The Cheerleader and Return of the Vampire.

One of Cooney's earlier teen thriller books, and a clumsy one at that. The subject matter is actually a lot like the later book Twins, and while Cooney displays her usual skills at laying out her protagonist's thoughts, Dove often falls short of being a likable heroine. The one aspect of The Perfume that Twins doesn't have is a solid friendship between the main character and her acquaintances, which goes a long way in saving this book.

The back cover reads: "Dove doesn't want to buy the perfume. She doesn't like its scent. And its name (Venom) frightens here. But somehow she can't help herself. It's almost as if something--or someone--inside her is forcing her to try it. Dove was always a nice person, a sweet and gentle girl on whom friends could rely. Until now. Because when Dove puts on the perfume, she unleashes a part of herself that has been locked away all her life. It is a second self she never knew existed. And it is Evil."
