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.

In this book, the main character Milly Kaufman experiences love, hardships, mysteries, and most importantly miracles. Milly lives in Vermont with the family that adopted her when she was four months old. Once a regular American teenager,Milly goes through a lot of changes after meeting Pablo Bolivar, a student from the same Latin American country in which Milly was born. At first, Milly thinks Pablo is trouble, but later on they form a bonding and loving relationship. I would recommend this novel to anyone in need of a unique love story.  Boston Public Library's Online Catalog
