I come from a family with step-parents and step-siblings and reading this story really made me consider how lucky I am that childhood was relatively normal. Although I can imagine from my own experiences how traumatic this story would be if it were true.
Kip is a senior in high school with his whole life ahead of him. He’s leaving for college in the fall and decides to let loose one last time before his final year ends. But when he leaves his friend’s house party, his life will never be the same again.
House On Fire is 401 pages long and took me five days to read.
I’m giving this story a 3.5 out of 5. I expected different things from this book but not in a bad way. I’ve thought about it many times since I’ve finished it and will probably end up reading it again. I would definitely recommend this book!
Thank you, Atria Books, for sending me this copy!
