"Burn" by Heath Gibson was some read that I simply will not forget that did keep my attention to the very end. You will get the feeling of anger and even laughter as you read through the many twist and turns.
In "Burn" you will be drawn into a Alabama preacher's Baptist family... Pastor Tucker... who is devoted and committed to his church that takes up most of his time ....thus producing the abandonment of his sons and his fermented wife...... the life of their son.... William... known as Wee-Wee, who just lives to put out fires.....adrenaline is invigorating which is a addiction for him.....there is also another a brother (Steven) who had up till now been considered a bit dashing....now has confirmed he is now gay ......then there is a new black girl named Samantha Johnson from Iowa who is new at the school. Now put this all together and get ready for a good read that will not only shake up this little Alabama town but to find out else happens you must pick up this good read "Burn" to find out. Be ready...it is really a interesting good read finding out just what is going on with William, Steven and Samantha.
I found this characters all amazing... William(Wee-Wee), Steven, Fred & Joy Ehler, Mandy Pearman, Mrs. Pearman, Billy & Seth Parker, Marcus Woubley, Chief Griffin, Leroy Toupes, Terry Brumfield, Mrs. Whitmore, Mrs. Inez, Mr. Thompson, Thad, Ms. Gale, Samantha Johnson, Ms. White, Mr. Jerry, Pastor Tucker, Connie Tucker, Nikki Macalusso, Mr. Simmons, Leonard, Paul, Mrs. Trahan, D.J Trahan, Debby, Buck, Mr. Daniels, Brett Toler, Mr. Edwards, Mrs. Teschner, Ms. Deana Hartley, Mr. Dunn, Mr. Cronyer, Mr. Whitehead and I am sure I have left out someone....you will have to find out who they are.
There was a quote that repeated several times from the Pastor to his boys..."Remember who you are" meaning you are the pastor's son..... so be aware!
I believe "Burn" will be a good read for the YA teen boys who would like to be a hero, however sometimes this can get you in to trouble especially if you take the wrong road to achieve it. Yes, this guilty character was so very desperate for praise and recognition...but at what price?
I would recommend "Burn" as a good read as a good read for the YA's and be ready for a very interesting ending. OMG!
