Adults really ought to take teenagers more seriously…

Ms. Ficklin opened the story with a very effective nightmare sequence that immediately gave me insight into Reece’s character. In only a couple pages, I learned that her mother had died recently, about the problems at her old school, and how well Reece handles a crisis. By the end of the first chapter, I truly cared about Reece and wanted to know how her story was going to end.

Sherry Ficklin writes such great Young Adult Heroines. They are strong, independent and don't let anyone boss them around. Reece Barnet in After Burn is no exception. Moving from school to school is something that Reece is used to. After all, her dad is an officer in the Marines. He's just been transferred to Cherry Point Marine Air Station in North Carolina. Reece isn't looking forward to starting over yet again-but she lucks out and finds friends on her first day with Kayla, Derek and Paul. ...more

Loved this book! I was so excited to see a YA book that wasn't fantasy or have vampires. I love those, but it is so refreshing to see a contemporary mystery YA novel. Move over Nancy Drew...

After Burn is a fantastic young adult/mystery novel about a military brat named Reece Barnett. If you are familiar with Sherry Ficklin’s work then you know she is a former military brat. It’s clear she used her knowledge and experience of living on various military bases to write this book. Let’s face it there’s nothing more frustrating than finding “fact” errors in a book. You won’t find any in After Burn.

Sixteen year old Reece just moved to a new military base. She’s faced with making new frie

I enjoyed this story well enough. Being a military brat myself i could relate to Reece's character, and her circumstaces a bit. I love the fact that she is strong and determined. Granted there were a few grammatical errors, but they were easily over looked.
