This is one of the best books I have ever read. I think I liked this book because I also have a step father. I think this is great book for all kids who have step parents and for kids even if they don't have step parents. Well that is about it and I hope you enjoy this book.Was this review helpful?

This book was very interesting. I had a little trouble following it in the beginning. It was very hard to understand. I think David Patneaude could have expanded a little more in the beginning and given a little more detail about Peter to tell us who he was and introduce him better to the audience. I think the overall message was displayed though. Framed in Fire was about a boy,Peter, who was very confused. He loved his little brother, Lincoln, very much. One night, Lincoln had a bad dream. He dreamt that the next door neighbor's house had caught on fire. The problem was, it really did. He told Peter it was like he was there. He could actually see the flames licking the ceiling. That is when Peter discovers that his little brother is special. Peter's step-father Buck does not like him. He's obsessed with Lincoln. When Lincoln trips over Peter one night and falls down the stairs, Buck blames Peter. He has Peter talk to a psychiatrist. The first doctor thought Peter was fine, but Buck was not satisfied with that. He has him see Dr. Lubber, who is taking sides with Buck. After he visits Dr. Lubber, Peter is committed to a mental hospital. Lincoln and Peter keep in touch through Lincoln's dreams. While he's there, Peter makes some new friends, and finds out some astonishing things from his past. Over all, David Patneaude wrote an amazing story. It takes you on emotional roller coasters as you follow Peter, and watch him grow in front of your very eyes. I would recommend this book who likes very intriguing stories, filled with laughter and pain, joy and sorrow.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
