Never get on the bad side of eight-year-old Charlie McGee. Sure, she has tantrums like any other child with screaming and crying, but getting stuck in the middle of one of Charlie’s fits could leave you a little crispier than before.

Charlie has a talent, and her powers are envied by the organization responsible for them. Now it’s a game of cat and mouse … and fire.

Firestarter has a unique way of dropping a plot line and then picking it up later. Also, the story develops every character so you learn what makes them tick – what they think about, what they worry about in a way that directly applies to the plot.

Firestarter is a story like no other with an ending that could have you in tears, making it the perfect book for anyone with a taste for irony, action, rebellion, science, and a life-or-death battle for what is right.
