While this was a book I enjoyed, it didn't keep up that tension for me. From the beginning, I had a feeling what the outcome might be, and I was right. The pacing felt a little slow at times, although I have to admit it was needed for the development of the characters and the book. But... I really, really enjoyed the last chapter in the book, that much I have to admit!
Another thing I really liked about Burning is its voice. It's very teen--as it should be--and I felt that was very on point throughout the book.
All in all, I enjoyed reading Danielle Rollins' Burning.
After three years in juvie, Angela Davis is just a few months shy of release, and she'll finally be free from the hole that is Brunesfield Correctional Facility. Then Jessica arrives. Only ten years old and under the highest security possible, this girl has to be dangerous, even if no one knows what she did to land in juvie. As strange things begin happening to Angela and her friends that can only be traced to the new girl's arrival, it becomes clear that Brunesfield is no longer safe. They must find a way to get out, but how can they save themselves when the world has forgotten them?
