Overview

Whenever Casey's famous mom went on tour, she took her daughter along. But since settling down with a new husband and baby, things have changed. After years of domestic life, Casey's mom is anxious to go back to her old life—without Casey. Devastated, Casey is left to keep the house running and care for Ginny, her autistic sister, while her step dad withdraws into his own private grief. Who is there to notice when Casey needs attention? To find comfort, Casey begins building fires to send smoke signals to her mother, hoping her mother will see her message. Casey has been hiding her anger behind a wall of house chores and the impossible job of keeping her sister calm. Soon the ritual fires won't be able to relieve her growing resentment. One day she won't be able to build a fire big enough to contain it all. A powerful free verse novel by the author of Libertad, Burn explores a girl's desperate attempt to keep her family together, even as her own growing obsessions threaten to destroy them.

Meet the Author

Alma Fullerton was born in Ottawa Ontario, as one of seven children. Her dad was in the military so they moved when his postings changed, first to Trenton when she was two, then to Comox when she was twelve. Being dyslexic, she couldn't read until grade four and didn't enjoy reading at all until grade nine, when she discovered books that she really loved. Now that she is as an award-winning author, Alma visits schools to teach children that they, too, can overcome any obstacle. Her first three books are: In the Garage (2006); Walking on Glass (2007), which was named to the 2008 YALSA Quick Pick list; and Libertad (2008), which was won and was nominated for many awards, including the 2008 Governor General's Literary Award for Children's Literature (finalist), the 2009 TD Canadian Children's Literature Award (finalist), the 2009 Ruth & Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Award (winner), the 2009 CLA Children's Book of the Year Honor Book, the 2009 Golden Oak Award (winner), the 2009 Once Upon a World Children's Book Award (winner), and the 2010 Silver Birch Award (shortlist).
