My Review:From the author of The Truth Beneath the Lies, which the bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying, Karen M. McManus, called "smart, suspenseful, and unpredictable," comes a psychological thriller about a girl who must keep her arsonist ways hidden--or watch her life go up in flames.
Jenny didn't want to move to the creepy, possibly haunted town with her dad. But the cops are on to her, and the only way she can protect herself is by moving as far away from her hometown as possible and staying out of trouble.
But even after she moves, Jenny still gets the itch. The itch to light a match and then watch it burn.
It's something she hasn't been able to stop, ever since an accident years ago. Now, in a new town, Jenny has the strange feeling that someone is watching her every move. Will her arsonist ways be exposed? Or is the burning truth deep inside her a greater danger?
This was a good idea, in theory, but a bit scattered in practice. The author was trying to make this into a thriller/mystery and it felt a bit predictable and a bit unfocused. I liked the New Mexican setting but I don't think I got into Jenny's head or self, ever. The ending was okay, not great, but not nearly as predictable as it could have been. Hopefully you have better luck with this one.
