Six-year-old Akshara watches her mother die. At thirteen, she watches her best friend die. She's heartbroken, but their deaths don't surprise her. She has a secret - she can glimpse into the future of those she loves. But for her it's a curse and not a blessing; every life she touches is thrown into turmoil, friends abandon her, and she is overwhelmed by more guilt than she can bear. Then, one day, she sees her own unhappy fate.

Does Akshara bring upon her loved ones the misfortunes they blame her for? Will Akshara be able to save herself after she has lost everyone she loved? Or will she lose her sanity like her mother did?

A gripping, evocative and sometimes surreal page-turner, He Knew a Firefly follows Akshara as she tries to light the dark, unknown pathways for her loves ones, before being ultimately consumed by the flames herself.

I didn't love this book. I didn't hate it either, but I didn't love it. He Knew A Firefly was okay; I didn't mind reading it one time, but I wouldn't want to read it again. The idea of the story was interesting. I liked how it involved more than one central character, while still maintaining a main character, but I hate how it kept jumping from one person's point of view to the others. The entire book seemed to be written in first person, and kept switching. I found it to be annoying, trying to remember who's point of view I was reading at the time. I found the story to be well-written, descriptive, and the characters were complex, which I really liked. Overall, I would definitely recommend the book to others, as it really wasn't bad. I just personally couldn't get into for some reason. **I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.**
