I have read a lot of books, 1000s even, however, for all the books I have read this one is completely different and I loved it. When I started this book I thought it was going to be about a young lady with paranormal abilities trying to live life as normal as possible with a boyfriend, foster father, foster sister as she navigates life after high school. I would not have been disappointed if this book ended there. Rita, or Red has she is affectionately called by Will is a pyromaniac as well as an arsonist. But that is not where her abilities end, she is in fact a pyrokinetic. She not only loves flame and all things fire, but she can manipulate it with her mind. I love fire, used to fight wildfires, but even I can't move my fingers and have the fire obey me, although that would have been very useful in the past. Rita is a strong independent individual who knows who she is, or at least thought she knew who she was until fire started to erupt from her fingers. The character development in such an action pack book is surprisingly good and really draws you into their life. I was really surprised how much I grew to like the four friends, and hated Bobby without even knowing his true story until the end. In fact the entire story culminates in the last 1/3 of the book. This book has it all, some love, some snarky attitude, some violence, some science, some ethical issues, and a lot of really good writing.
