Jenny didn't want to move to the creepy, possibly haunted town with her dad. But the cops are on to her, and the only way she can protect herself is by moving as far away from her hometown as possible and staying out of trouble.

But even after she moves, Jenny still gets the itch. The itch to light a match and then watch it burn.

It's something she hasn't been able to stop, ever since an accident years ago. Now, in a new town, Jenny has the strange feeling that someone is watching her every move. Will her arsonist ways be exposed? Or is the burning truth deep inside her a greater danger?

Angie’s Thoughts:

Watch You Burn has a lot of potential. It’s about a girl named Jenny who’s an arsonist. She and her dad move to a new town and Jenny thinks this is her way of starting over. Starting fresh. She thinks if she burns things that are nonrelevant that everything will be ok. But she’s wrong.

I really liked the first half of this book. It was a great read. Suspenseful. An unreliable character but someone you liked. Then I don’t know what happened.

The writing took a turn for the worse. There were things that were happening where you thought, WTF did I just read and not in a good way. It became sporadic and unbelievable. Now I know it’s fiction and it’s not real but some of the stuff was out there.

Overall base your own opinion. You might like it. All of it.
