After a few years in juvie, Angela is finally close to her release, but everything changes the day a new warden with dark plans takes over. Angela knows evil when she sees it, and as strange disappearances and frightening incidents happen more and more frequently, it becomes clear that Brunesfield could be the end of them.

Review quote

"Stephen King's Firestarter meets Walter Dean Myers' Monster. . . . With its subtle yet timely commentary on police brutality, interracial dating, and LGBT rights, the novel addresses contemporary issues without didacticism. A wildly fulfilling and frightening read." starred review, "Kirkus Reviews"

""Burning "is "firestarter "for the next generation! Vivid, suspenseful, and tautly-wound, this book reads like a love letter to the modern thriller genre. Teens will relate to the accessible, well-drawn characters and tight pacing." Micol Ostow, author of AMITY and THE DEVIL AND WINNIE FLYNN"
