My Life on Fire (Paperback)Cath Howe (author)
From the author of Ella on the Outside comes a beautifully handled and powerful study of family upheaval and the lengths to which we are prepared to go to reclaim what we've lost.
A tense, page-turning story that sensitively deals with themes of family upheaval and kleptomania, by the bestselling author of Ella on the Outside.
Ren's family lose their home in a fire. They're living with her grandmother now and things are a bit tense.
Ren lost her collection of things, her clothes; her brother lost his little bear and is inconsolable. So Ren starts replacing things with other people's possessions. They've got loads of stuff, after all.
But she gets caught and has to strike a terrifying deal to avoid detection...
