Description

"The best thing to do for someone who thinks he's lost his whole life is to make him feel like it's been given back to him.

That's why I can do this. Fire can fix it."

William Tucker always does the right thing. He excels at high school, works at the grocery store, passes out bulletins at his father's church, and still finds time to fight fires as the newest volunteer firefighter in Coosa Creek, Alabama.

But no matter how many good deeds William does, it never seems like enough. So when his father's expectations and the community's hypocrisy become too much to bear, William's obsession with doing good transforms into something far more dangerous.

"Gibson pens authentic Southern, small-town teenspeak and settings that add fuel to the fires (so to speak) of William's life. Compelling."—KIRKUS REVIEWS
