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 to me had a rocky start but to me all good book do so when I kept up with the book it got so much better the best and starting to the good book was this kid name Macks amount of phobia's. And what was a good part was that the author had the main character face his fears or phobias in the book.And to top it all of the best part was that it was an adventure all in it self.  Boston Public Library's Online Catalog

This book was definately incredible because in real life three animals wouldn't be able to survive without their owners, but then again they could if they were specially trained. In this story the only ones that had some kind of talent were Luath, a hunting dog, and Tao, a Siamese cat who was also good at finding food. The only one who didn't really have a lot of power was Bodger, the oldest of the three animals. Overall, these three animals completed the journey and were able to return to their family.  Boston Public Library's Online Catalog

The book was easy to understand. In my opinion, the best thing about the book is that we can see more than one person points of view; Ethan’s, Jay’s and Bird’s. You can see the story from their eyes. After Bird’s stepfather abandoned them, she found him. At the same time, she met Jay and Ethan. She learned that her stepfather was Ethan’s uncle. Then, she disguised herself from her stepfather. She introduced herself as Bird. So we just know that name of her. Her stepfather also called her as Bird before he left them. Jay is so sad because of loss of his brother. At the same time, he stole Mrs. Pritchard’s car. By that time, Ethan got along with Bird and they had a good friendship. At the end of the story, Bird realized that it wasn’t what she wanted when she was ready to face with her stepfather. She realized what a family really means and she got in the bus for going back of home.  Boston Public Library's Online Catalog
