Burning by Danielle Rollins

Tucked away, deep in the woods, Brunesfield Correctional Facility’s cold walls and empty hallways keep dangerous girls away from the world . . . girls like Angela Davis, whose fate was determined by one bad decision. After a few years in juvie, Angela is finally close to her release, but everything changes the day a new warden with dark plans takes over. Angela knows evil when she sees it, and as strange disappearances and frightening incidents happen more and more frequently, it becomes clear that Brunesfield could be the end of them. Angela and her friends must find a way to get out, but how can they save themselves from very place keeping them locked away?

My review
I really enjoyed this book as it took me down memory lane and reminded me of one of my favourite childhood movies called Firestarter; a movie with a very young Drew Barrymore with the ability to control fire with her mind and I loved how the author also included the importance of water and then added in so so much more. Full of conspiracies theory’s to keep the mind boggled and puzzling out what is going to happen next with plenty of suspense. A very enjoyable read that will give an insight into what it’s like to be faced with the impossible odds and having to make hard choices for the sake of survival.

My Recomendation
I’m going to say ages 13 and up depending on maturity level as it has a lot of conspiracies that might confuse some of the young readers. However if you love conspiracies and intrigue then this is a great book.

Many thanks to Bloomsbury Publishers for sending me a review copy in exchange for my honest review.
