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.

Jenny Greenley, a high school junior, is so trustworthy that she is Ask Annie, the school’s anonymous & “neutral” advice giver. Being able to keep that secret, she suddenly is the one in charge of Luke Striker, a total Hollywood hottie. Unfortunately, Luke doesn’t care about his top-secret disguise as Lucas Smith so Jenny’s job is almost impossible. During a school car wash, “Lucas” whips off his shirt and the whole school notices his tattoo, which only the famous Luke has. Running away to his house with Jenny, Luke convinces her that she can do much more then make friends. Soon, Jenny is a hero. Because of her aid to others, Scott, Jenny’s crush since fifth grade, confesses his love for her. Finally everyone is satisfied: Jenny, Scott, Luke, (obviously the school) and even a girl that used to be called Cara the cow.
