Julie Musil has announced the Cover Reveal of her new, upcoming book, THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE, so I just wanted to say Pomaika`i (or good luck in Hawaiian) and share the news with you!
Manny O’Donnell revels in his status at the top of his high school food chain. He and his friends party in the mountains on a blustery night, sharing liquor and lame ghost stories around a campfire. The next morning, as a wild fire rages in those same mountains, Manny experiences doubt. He was the last of the drunken crew to leave the cave, and he’s uncertain if he extinguished the flames. Within hours, he becomes the number one arson suspect.Santa Ana winds + matches = disaster. You’d think he would've learned that the first time he started a fire.
As he evades a determined arson investigator, Manny, a modern-day Scrooge, is visited by ghosts of the past, present, and future. He’s forced to witness the fate of his inadvertent victims, including Abigail, the scarred beauty who softens his heart. Manny must choose between turning around his callous, self-centered attitude, or protecting his own skin at the expense of anyone who gets in his way.

PS... Thanks to everyone who commented on my Friday post (I keep losing my boys) and some of the suggestions re. GPS and/or tracking device implants are worthy of serious consideration. Perhaps in another galaxy, far, far away :)
