Burned by Ellen Hopkins

So here's the deal: I love books in free verse, and Hopkins is by far the best.

That said, let's look at her book BURNED.
Burned is more of a romance than any of her other books.

It follows the story of Pattyn Von Stratten, a girl in a strict Mormon family who begins questioning her faith after an innocent sex dream. She wonders if she is held accountable for her dreams, if she can ever make it into heaven.

Well, after being caught in a questionable position with a boy, her life begins to spiral out of control. And her mother, about to have her first boy, shouldn't have to handle the stress, should she? So her parents send her to live with her Aunt Jeannette, or Aunt J as she calls her. Aunt J is nice and loving, but she has also been scarred emotionally by Pattyn's father. She helps Pattyn to find love, happiness, and herself.

This book has the best ending of any romance novel I have ever read before. Read it, and all of Hopkins' other books.

Thanks for reading!
