I’d say this book is aimed more at a younger audience (the main characters are teenagers, after all) but its written well enough that I’d imagine a wide variety of ages could enjoy it. One thing I also must note is how well the chemistry between Daniel and Samantha is expressed, it truly has a sense of realism to it and flows very well. Highly recommended!
The circumstances were perfect for comedy and humor. I got good chuckles and smiles out of the book. I appreciated Samantha's character and her reluctance to accept the supernatural or her witch powers. I often feel that characters are too quick to assume these kinds of roles in other stories. But Samantha's disbelief and denial serves as a main source of conflict throughout the book. And interestingly enough, she suffers physically from blocking her powers, a nice touch that we don't see often. Furthermore, the pacing of the writing itself was nice and consistent. Not too fast, not too slow.
Though the premise of the story is really quite simple, there are enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged. If you're looking for a light, entertaining read with a strong paranormal romance element, I recommend you give this book a go.

For at least the first third of the book, Fire Girl is missing the spark (not asking pardon for that pun) that turns a plot into a story. I could definitely see where the author was going, I just didn’t care about the getting there. I thoroughly enjoyed the main character’s smart mouth, but I didn’t care about any of the characters. It gives a very disjointed feeling that doesn’t allow you to lose yourself within the pages. Instead you find yourself wishing for just a bit more.
I think part of the problem is that, at least to my understanding, this is a transition novel. The author is moving from middle-grade to young adult here, and hasn’t quite shed the writing style middle grade needs. What worked for middle-grade doesn’t work well for young adult reads. More room is given for introspection, world building, et cetera. However, after you hit the halfway point, you can see the writing style transition into a more appropriate form. It begins to read a lot more smoothly and, by the last quarter it’s a truly enjoyable story. The last quarter saves it, but it doesn’t make up completely for the troubles that came before it.
Overall, Fire Girl shows flashes of the talent I know Andy Mulberry possesses. I have no doubt that her next young adult novel will be a wonderful read. There was a refreshing lack of a love triangle in Fire Girl. The main female was sassy, but not super-powered. There was a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming. These are all great things that, if replicated in further work, will take her far.
