    Do not underestimate this book. Here is the honest truth: some books you read and forget, letting them collect dust on a distant shelf,
    while others seem to imprint themselves into your very soul, never leaving. “The Burning of Cherry Hill” is, without a doubt, the later.
    This book was more than I ever expected it to be and it left me breathless, heartbroken and wanting more. The characters were precious
    and each stood out on their own. Zay Scott, especially, has found a special place in my heart. The relationship with his sister,
    the importance of family and his courage to do what was right stood out above all others. His strength grew with each chapter and
    I felt like I was on the journey with him.

    In the beginning, the cover art is what really drew my attention to the book and I found out that, like the cover,
    this story is truly a work of art.

    The world of 2159 is a world so like, yet unlike, our own. The parallels are very disconcerting to me. Technology, brilliant and
    incredible technology, is used by the government to have supreme control over the words and actions of its citizens.
    Fear and ignorance are the driving force of everything. People who believe the lies of those in power because they fear the
    consequences of disobedience. Citizens who “vanish” because they utter words like “strike” and “garden” to close friends.
    People who believed themselves to be insignificant against the tide of power. But because of courage and love of family 
    that all changed. This story did something else as well. It reminded me of the power that a few words can have.
    words like “vanish” and “promise”. How often a day do we make promises to people? Zay had to make promises,
    not the “try-your-best-and-hope-it-works-out promises” kind, as his father said, but the “if-you-don’t-keep-them-we-could-all-die” kind.
    How often do we take our words (and our freedom to speak those words without fear of “vanishing”) for granted?

    I’ll leave this review with a question that Zay has inspired me to ask myself: Why don’t we practice courage everyday? 
    Maybe the world would be better if we did. After all, “some days are very precious,very rare”.
    I will be sure to make today my very, always.
