Burn by Heath Gibson


All it takes is one spark

William Tucker loves being a volunteer firefighter (maybe it's no coincidence that a pastor's son would enjoy saving people). And after he rescues his crush, Mandy Pearman, she undergoes a profound transformation for the better. In fact, it seems like a lot of good comes from the embers of tragedy in his small Alabama town. William may not be able to meet his father's expectations, force his mother to ditch the gin, or protect his gay brother, but for those who need a second chance at life, William isn't afraid to light the match--and become the hero the town needs.

Paperback, 264 pages
Expected publication: August 8th 2012 by Flux

**From GoodReads**

This wasn't a bad book. The main character is William, also known as Wee Wee - for his short stature. Wee Wee is a senior in high school, and a volunteer for the local fire department. He sets fires thinking that good will come out of it.

I read this book on my Kindle, and it didn't seem as if it was 264 pages. Seemed shorter. I enjoyed reading Burn. I think that there could have been some more build up or more explaination as to why William did the things that he did. All in all it was a good read.
