Overview

Jimmy Groome never really believed that his life was worth anything. An overweight and unpopular teen, it takes a suicide attempt to bring a traumatic childhood experience into sharp focus. With some encouragement from family and a counselor, Jimmy picks up a guitar and it quickly becomes obvious that he has a natural talent. After losing weight and joining a band, Jimmy goes from being a shy and insecure child to an outgoing and self-destructive young adult. In a world where sex, drugs and rock n' roll go hand in hand Jimmy’s future is uncertain.

In this prequel to Fire, we follow Jimmy Groome on his dark path, where he decides if he'll ignite the fire inside - or if he’ll let it burn out and fade away.

Love this book! I finally got around to reading it after checking out Fire (the book before this one) and think I like this book even more...Jimmy Groome! What can I say? He's a troubled child that you can't help but feel sorry for but don't worry, he gets where he has to be! Sex, drugs and rock n' roll - a few laughs, a few tears - this book has something for everyone. Totally related to the main character.

Suddenly a white shecat with ginger patches ran in, three kits in her jaws. One was a dark ginger, black, and white tortoiseshell she-kit, another a pure white she-kit, and the last a black tom-kit with white patches. The she-cat looked around wildly, then set the kits down at the edge of the camp. She looked pleadingly at the clan cat, then bolted. A few minutes later, a shriek of pain was abruptly cut off. The kits shook in fear.

RussetCloud and FeatherSpark ; The two cats padded in. RussetCloud was a russet colored tom with white ears and tail while FeatherSpark was a fluffy pure white she. Her fur was soft as a feather. The siblings both sit down. FeatherSpark scanned the area with light brown eyes while RussetCloud looked for the leader with intense chocolate brown eyes. "May FeatherSpark and I join this clan ? ," RussetCloud meowed as the cats waited for a responce. <br> <br> SunnyKit , BlackPaw , and AmberEyes ; The three cats pad in. The kit stayed close to her older sister and brother. SunnyKit was a pure white she while BlackPaw was a jet black tom and AmberEyes was a creamy colored she with white paws , ears , underbelly , and half of her tail. SunnyKit looked around with sunny yellow eyes while BlackPaw scanned the area with intense blue eyes. AmberEyes looked around for the leader with amber eyes. "May SunnyKit , BlackPaw , and I join this clan ? ," AmberEyes meowed.
