The Burn Journals by Brent Runyon


This is a great book about a 14 year old who tries to kill himself. Brent, who is also the author, talks about the memories when he tried to kill himself because he got bad grades and he didn’t want his parents to know. One day, he actually almost killed himself by lighting himself on fire. He got many 2nd and 3rd degree burns and started to wonder if anyone would like him anymore. Brent sees life in a different light and learns to cherish life and be grateful for what he has. After he recovered from most of his burns, he gets sent to a rehab center where people are mean to him but he still pushes his way back to normality and getting on with his life. When I finished reading this book, I couldn’t believe that this was a true story. This is a great experience with suicide and the victim’s thoughts and emotion. This is a one of a kind book and I would recommend this autobiography to anyone willing to face the devastating experience for Brent Runyon.

This book is about a girl named Mia who can see shapes and colors of all kinds. For example, it you asked her what color Billy is, she would say that it is the color of "light brown with wood, with some sky blue sprinkled in." this ability makes it hard for her to learn math and new languages. The reason why she has a hard time with languages is because the colors aren't the same. The reason why she has trouble with math is because the numbers don't make sense. Recently her grandpa has died, and what in his funeral, she saw a kitten that had the same eyes as her grandfather. She named the kitten Mango because his wheezes emits a mango colored puff. She tells her mother and her father about her stange ability and learns that it is called synesthesia. Mia connects with other people on the internet who has the same kind of ability and she feels better. A tragic trauma occurs and her cat, Mango dies. mia loses her ability and thinks that everything is so empty without her shapes and colors. In the end, she finds out that Mango was a father to 4 kits, the last one looked a lot like mango but when the young kit yawned, it let out mustard colored air. This book reminds me of My Name is Mina because it is also about a girl who has an active imagination (except Mia is exactly experiencing it for real) great book! I can see why it is in the summer reading list.   Boston Public Library's Online Catalog

But for me the most parts I liked were from this character that was a golem he is very funny because he does not no how to act like a human.
