Overview

Everybody needs someone who gets their crazy

Hank Kirby can't catch a break. He doesn't mean to screw up. It just happens. Case in point: his attempt to ask out the girl he likes literally goes up in flames when he spelled "prom" in sparklers on Amanda Carlisle's lawn...and nearly burns down her house, without ever asking her the big question.

Hank just wants to pretend the incident never happened. And he might've gotten away with it-except there is a witness.

Peyton Breedlove, brooding loner and budding pyromaniac, saw the whole thing, and she blackmails Hank into an unusual friendship. Sure, Hank may be headed for his biggest disaster yet, but it's only when life falls apart that you can start piecing it back together.

"Funny, authentic, and, at turns, heartbreaking."-Jessi Kirby, author of Things We Know by Heart and Moonglass

"I had so much fun reading this book."-Adi Alsaid, author of Never Always Sometimes and Let's Get Lost

In this debut novel, Reul crafts a romantic hero who is valiant, sensitive, self-deprecating, and a little confused about which girl he wants to date. Aspiring comic-book artist Hank Kirby nearly burns down the house of his dream prom date, Amanda, with a sparkler-related proposal gone wrong, and flees the scene. But there's a witness: Peyton, a strange, pyromaniac girl from school who sees a kindred spirit in Hank and suddenly wants to be his friend. Hank's self-deprecating narration is consistently funny ("She pulls away from the window—probably to call the fire department. We should probably talk about prom another time"), bringing a lightness to a story that also delves into loss, grief, parental negligence, and mental health. Beyond Peyton's inability to stay away from matches, she's dealing with a drug-addicted mother; Hank has major tragedy in his past, too, and he finds an unexpected confidante in Peyton, even as he continues to pursue Amanda. The road to romance between Hank and Peyton may be bumpy for them, but readers should find it entirely enjoyable. Ages 14–up. Agent: Leigh Feldman, Leigh Feldman Literary. (Apr.)
