Brita On Fire

I didn’t notice Mom come around in back of me until she grabbed my shoulders. I promise, I didn’t realize it was Mom. I didn’t know what or who was behind me. I just reacted. I was scared and jumpy. My heart was beating so fast and my hands were on fire and I didn’t know how to control it.

When Mom touched me, I startled. I jumped. I let the fire grow.

She had only wanted to calm me, I’m sure, but the flames caught her.

A crowd had formed, and they all saw. But they didn’t react. They stood back, yards away, fearful. Some screamed. Some ran.

Dad yelled, Garret cradled in his arms, “Lanie! NO!” He whispered to Garret, put him gently on the ground, and ran to Mom’s side. But by the time he got to her, she was gone.

That was the worst day of my life: the day I killed my mom.

When Brita is nine-years-old, she discovers an ability that takes the lives of her mother and brother. Overcome with grief and guilt, she seeks comfort from her father. But he is unwilling to face his daughter and sends her away, to the facility, a mysterious place filled with doctors, nurses, and guards who are curious about Brita and what she can do. There, Brita is tested, prodded, and trained to control her dangerous power. But to what end?

Brita views her ability as a curse and hopes to one day be rid of it. But the facility has other plans.​

I was absolutely riveted from the start. The story pulls you in and keeps you fully engaged with a beautifully written plot and absolutely believable cast of characters.

 A fantastically promising story of unexpected superpowers, compelling manipulations, and secretive authorities who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Fun, quick read from first person perspective. Can't wait to read on and see what happens to Brita when the next installment becomes available.

Couldn’t put it down and now I have to wait for the next book, ugh!
