Booklist, School Library Journal

Junior Library Guild

  • This high-concept yet immersively realistic series is a standout in the YA suspense genre. Fire with Fire builds on the strengths of the first novel (Burn for Burn) and delivers an unpredictable and absorbing reading experience.
  • Main characters Kat, Lillia, and Mary are memorable and distinct, with well-differentiated personalities and narrative voices. The cast of supporting characters, including vindictive cheerleader Rennie and inscrutable quarterback Reeve, is also notably strong.
  • Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian have an exceptional understanding of teenage social dynamics, and their characters’ actions and emotions—though necessarily heightened—ring with truth.
  • Amid the girls’ scheming, Lillia unexpectedly finds herself in a love triangle that will have readers pulling both for surprisingly vulnerable Reeve and Reeve’s charming, gentlemanly teammate, Alex.
  • The novel’s tension, building steadily from the first chapter, ratchets up considerably in the final act. And a startling twist sheds new light on previous events and sets the stage for an exciting follow-up.

School Library Journal

Picking up a few days after the events of Burn for Burn (S & S, 2012), this sequel deals with the fallout from a revenge plan that didn’t go as smoothly as it should have. Lillia finds herself iced out of her social circle by her former BFF, Rennie, when star football player Reeve shows an interest in her. Reeve’s attention provides Lillia, Kat, and Mary, who formed a secret alliance in the first novel, another opportunity to exact revenge. This time, Lillia will make Reeve fall in love with her and then break his heart the way he broke Mary’s. Lillia wants nothing to do with Reeve, but goes along with the plan for her friend and soon finds herself developing true feelings for him. Mary knows better than to still care for Reeve, but knowing better doesn’t stop it from happening. Meanwhile, her aunt, with whom she lives, starts acting stranger and stranger, and Mary’s memories of her haunted past start trickling back. The narration rotates among the three main girls. Each one has a distinct voice, making it easy to follow the engaging story. There are more questions than there are answers about the multiple plot threads left dangling at the end. Fans of the first book have been waiting eagerly for this installment; those new to the series are encouraged to go back to Burn for Burn to catch up.—Brandy Danner, Perkins School for the Blind, Watertown, MA
