Pattyn's father is dead. Now she's on the run in this riveting companion to the New York Times bestselling Burned.

Pattyn Von Stratten's father is dead, and Pattyn is on the run. After far too many years of abuse at the hands of her father, and after the tragic loss of her beloved Ethan and their unborn child, Pattyn is desperate for peace. Only her sister Jackie knows what happened that night, but she is stuck at home with their mother, who clings to normalcy by allowing the truth to be covered up by their domineering community leaders. Her father might be finally gone, but without Pattyn, Jackie is desperately isolated.

Alone and in disguise, Pattyn starts a new life as a migrant worker on a California ranch. But is it even possible to rebuild a life when everything you've known has burned to ash and lies seem far safer than the truth?

Bestselling author Ellen Hopkins continues the riveting story of Pattyn Von Stratten she began in Burned to explore what it takes to rise from the ashes, put ghosts to rest, and step into a future.

Review quote

"A strong, painful and tender piece about wresting hope from the depths of despair." * Kirkus Reviews * "Hopkins' riveting story line is full of the perpetual premonition of danger, and the simple free-verse format belies the complexity of both plot and craft...a compelling and thought-provoking read." * Booklist * "The book is rife with real issues and demanding attention, leaving the reader to realize that when the smoke clears, redemption is always possible. In the end, voices are heard that refuse to be silenced and the empowerment that comes with the character's decisions transcend the page and leave much to be discussed and contemplated among readers." * VOYA, starred review * "Hopkins's fans should and will clamor for this sequel." * School Library Journal *

Our customer reviews

Pattyn is on the run - a fugitive, forced out of her small Mormon community because of the part she played in her fathers death. But the death of her father means nothing in comparison to the deaths of her baby and her boyfriend, Ethan. Jackie is left behind, trying to tend to the shambles of their broken home. With her father dead and her mother a wreck, Jackie is forced to put aside her own grief and care for her siblings. But Jackie - like Pattyn - has secrets buried within, and she can't keep them contained forever.... I loved Burned, so when I heard that there was a sequel in the works, I was a little wary (albeit excited). When I found a copy sitting in my mailbox a few days ago, I knew it was going to be another one of those nights when I stayed up late reading. Pattyn and Jackie were extremely well-developed. I loved the way their stories started off in the same place, branched out, and then connected again. The supporting characters were also really well-written - I loved Gavin and Angel and Adriana. Jackie's struggle to move on was heartbreaking, and reading about her mother's indifference infuriated me. I found myself cheering on Pattyn, hoping she found what she was looking for and got the chance to move on. While abuse was a major theme in this novel, I found hope to be one as well. Moving on was a big one too, and Ellen Hopkins wrote it beautifully. Jackie and Pattyn's struggles were believable and relatable, and nothing was sugarcoated. If you are a fan of poetry, contemporary lit, or just looking to branch out in the YA genre, I definitely recommend you check out anything and everything by Ellen Hopkins. If you loved Burned, pre-order Smoke ASAP!show more
