5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down..., December 27, 2004
This review is from: The Burn Journals (Hardcover)
I finished this book two days after I purchased it. From the first page on, this was a very emotional and engrossing read. I consider a book worthwhile if it can make me laugh, cry, and rethink an idea. This book brought me to tears more than once, but the dialogue is also very funny at times. You can tell it is written by a young adult because of the humor and use of language, but this is not a bad thing. The dialogue is easy to grasp, yet full of emotion and meaning.

This book is a real page turner. None of it was boring. I never found myself wishing that a chapter was over, or flipping ahead to see how much I had left. It wasn't a chore to read, it was very enjoyable. I find books about accidents, trauma, and disabilities very interesting, so I was engrossed by the story- a young man lighting himself on fire and his struggle to live after the accident. This is a story of hope, courage, and the will to live. It helped me realize the value of life.

I recommend it to older teens, 16 and up.
