Tillmon County Fire by Pamela Ehrenberg

A spark popped out and hopped around the leaves, then paused for a second before bursting into flames. . . . I watched the fire for a while, and then: crack. The basement window split, a long spidery crack at first, then all the pieces flew out in a pop that made me step back several steps. I told myself not to be scared and made myself remember that I was helping. That relaxed me a little. Then another pop. Like the first few Fourth of July fireworks, which were usually on July 2 because the town could get them for cheaper. In tiny Tillmon County, where it seems like nothing ever happens, a mysterious fire rocks the lives of the teenagers who live there. Who set the fire that night, and more importantly, who owns the reasons behind it? As the story unfolds, the lines between truth and fiction, motive and happenstance, guilt and innocence blur. This novel-in-stories is told sequentially in the voices of its disparate cast of characters: a frustrated adoptee, a gay teenager, a big-city kid who is new in town and wishes he were back in Manhattan, a pregnant store clerk, and a boy with autism who is more at the center of events than he imagines. Pamela Ehrenbergs gift for compelling storytelling makes this a memorable and moving work of fiction for teenage readers.
