Well written and very readable. There are lots of sex thoughts inside the mind of a 14 - 15 year old boy but, aside from that, it does bring to light the plight of a depressed teen.

A terribly tragic true story, The Burn Journals is beautiful in itself.

Autobiography. Brent Runyon was 14 when he poured gasoline on his bathrobe and set himself afire. Book details the year that follows with intensive care and rehab, family therapy and eventually returning to high school. Descriptions of depressed and violent thinking that continue well past the fire.
