The Burning by Laura Bates

A rumour is like a fire. You might think you’ve extinguished it but one creeping, red tendril, one single wisp of smoke is enough to let it leap back into life again. Especially if someone is watching, waiting to fan the flames …

One thought on “The Burning by Laura Bates

  1. This book was like an explosion of three things: meaningfulness, a great storyline and a sideline story just as great as the main one. There were two different stories in this book ,as I’ve already said, which both intertwine very well but are also at the very same time quite different from each other. The book showed how a girl could stand up to cyber bullying and also terrible dreams about a witch from the past. I was so interested in the plot of the story just as I read it and was immediately intrigued by absolutely anything that happened. I would have to recommend this book to anyone in the whole wide world!
