I'm so happy that I finally decided to pick this book up and finish off this duology. It was the perfect way to finish off Pattyn's story and I really enjoyed the addition of Jackie's perspective. I will say though that it dragged on at times, but other than that it was an enjoyable read!

Ellen Hopkins wins at life.
First, I found out that there was going to be a second Impulse. I was beyond joy.
AND now there's a second Burned?!

Dear God, somebody just kill me already, before the wait does.

EDIT: My goodness, I think I may die. I just read that Smoke will not only be a sequel (thank God, I'd been worried when I'd heard it was a companion novel), but will be told from Pattyn's perspective (I was afraid it wouldn't) but also her younger sister Jackie! Not only that though, there may also be a TH

I'm a little bewildered by the number of reviews complaining about Hopkins writing this sequel to Burned.

Um...she's an author, folks. She can write whatever the hell she wants. And if Smoke has even a HINT of the emotional brilliance of Burned, it will be a masterpiece.

Burned was the first Hopkins book I read several years ago, and it hooked me for life. It also put me on the road writing my first verse novel, which is in progress.

Bottom line is, if you are so attached to Burned as a stand alone

Why would she make a second book to this series? What else would Pattyn have to talk about? Her grief of her loves dying.. Oh well I guess.
(view spoiler)
Burned was the book that made me step away from Ellen Hopkins for awhile. Not because it was badly written, but because the ending was so awful and hopeless. I was a little reluctant to read the sequel. Could she possibly make it any worse than it already was? Maybe she could have. But that wasn't her mission this time around. It seems like this time, she wanted to make all her characters happy. I could maybe go for that. It isn't like Pattyn and Jackie haven't had sufficient doses of suffering, ...more

Burned was my least favorite book out of her whole entire series. However, I'm excited for "Smoke" though! Just because it was my least favorite, doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. I just felt it was a bit boring... until the end of course. Very heart breaking and the cliff hanger at the end was very interesting to leave a reader at! Looking forward to buying a copy of this(: Thank you Ellen Hopkins! Keep making new books more and more and more! hehe ;p I'll always support her <3

Burned was the best book by Ellen Hopkins, but the ending especially, the way we didn't know if she killed herself or not, I loved it. I'm super disappointed that Pattyn is going to be in the sequel, well, I'm kind of disappointed there's going to be a sequel at all. Burned was perfect, couldn't she leave it be?

First Impulse and now Burned. My two all-time favorite Ellen Hopkins books. Life just doesn't get any better than this!
i cant wait!
ethan..i dont think hes dead i think they lied..anyone else?

Thank God I didn't have to wait 6-7 years for this book!

The action began from the beginning and was pretty consistent throughout the whole novel. I enjoyed the switching POV's between Pattyn and Jackie, though I felt like I was more interested in Jackie's story than Pattyn's most times.

The so-called villains in this book made me just as angry as ever, particularly Deidre and the girls' mother. There were moments when I felt my heart began racing a bit. The writing again was amazing, and though I

Burned was epic.





Pattyn is on the run - a fugitive, forced out of her small Mormon community because of the part she played in her fathers death. But the death of her father means nothing in comparison to the deaths of her baby and her boyfriend, Ethan.

Jackie is left behind, trying to tend to the shambles of their broken home. With her father dead and her mother a wreck, Jackie is forced to put aside her own grief and care for her siblings. But Jackie - like Pattyn - has secrets buried within, and she can't kee

It's hard to pinpoint exactly how I feel about this book. Burned remains my absolute favorite book, so naturally I have been looking forward to this sequel for a long time. But after reading this story, I don't think it needed to be told. Burned is just too perfect a story to try to match with a sequel. However, there are a few really good things about Smoke: it resolves the cliffhanger at the end of Burned, it develops Jackie a lot more, and there are some heart warming moments. But, there are ...more

I dunno what to say, I'm scared, but I'm so exited! I literally squealed when I saw this, but.. What if it takes away from the first one? I'm just.. Beyond happy with the first one, all the sad, depressed feels it gives me included. It's my all time favorite book. I just don't know what to do if it's ruined in my eyes; like if Pattyn finds another love besides Ethan.. I can't handle that. Cannot. But! I trust Mrs. Hopkins. Whatever she writes, it'll be amazing.

SPOILER~ Post reading.

So uhm. Just wondering, I was under the impression she went out and killed her dad or something by the end of the book? Could have read it wrong, but is this her chronicle of life in prison?
Raeleen Lemay
Not quite as amazing as Burned, but SOOO GOOOOOOD. I'm glad we get to see how Pattyn's story really ended, and get closure DEAR GOD THE CLOSURE.

A copy of Smoke was provided to me by Simon & Schuster Audio for review purposes.

'How many people live unafraid? To truly embrace courage, I think, requires one of two things--unshakable faith that death is no more than a portal to some Shangri-la reunion. Or zero belief at all.'

Smoke is the highly anticipated follow-up to the 2006 release, Burned. It's a dual-narrative story told from the point of view of Pattyn who is currently on the run after her father is shot a
I went to bed last night with about 150 pages left...if you know me, you know I'd already peeked at the ending, so that was NOT the reason I got up an hour later to finish. I just had to see HOW Pattyn and her sister Jackie got to that ending.

BURNED leaves Pattyn sitting on an overpass with a loaded gun. Nothing to live for; nothing to lose.

This one opens with her on a bus, fleeing her home where she's just shot and killed her father. The story is told in her voice and Jackie's. Jackie's brutal
The more Ellen Hopkins novels I read, the less I find myself enjoying them. I think what keeps me coming back is the hope that the next thing she writes is going to have the same visceral rawness that I remember from when I first read Crank and Impulse. The more seasoned Hopkins gets as a writer, the further away she gets from that original style that initially drew me in. There's something almost juvenile about the writing, and that used to be ok because it worked with the subject she was writi ...more

I'll start my review with this: the ending of Burned scarred me for life. After reading and finishing the lengthy book, I was in desperate need for some answers and desperately hoping that there was a sequel so I will finally get some solid answers. Did Pattyn go through with it? Does everything happen exactly as planned? What happens next? Most of all, why was Ellen Hopkins torturing us with that open ending?! Several months ago, when I heard that Ellen Hopkins was going to write
