Cover Reveal: THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE by Julie Musil

Cover Reveal: THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE by Julie Musil

I met Julie when we both went to an author dinner at the fabulous Dana Elmendorf's home. Julie is very sweet and her blog is wonderful for writers to get tips from. Her YA novel THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE has a cover!

Designed by Jeff Allen Fielder
Manny O’Donnell revels in his status at the top of his high school food chain. He and his friends party in the mountains on a blustery night, sharing liquor and lame ghost stories around a campfire. The next morning, as a wild fire rages in those same mountains, Manny experiences doubt. He was the last of the drunken crew to leave the cave, and he’s uncertain if he extinguished the flames. Within hours, he becomes the number one arson suspect.

Santa Ana winds + matches = disaster. You’d think he would've learned that the first time he started a fire.

As he evades a determined arson investigator, Manny, a modern-day Scrooge, is visited by ghosts of the past, present, and future. He’s forced to witness the fate of his inadvertent victims, including Abigail, the scarred beauty who softens his heart. Manny must choose between turning around his callous, self-centered attitude, or protecting his own skin at the expense of anyone who gets in his way.
