Overview

In the bestselling tradition of Jodi Picoult and Celeste Ng, House on Fire is a "harrowing and profound" (Kirkus Reviews) suspenseful drama about a blended family in crisis.

Divorce lawyer Leigh Huyett knows all too well that most second marriages are doomed to fail. Yet five years in, she and Peter Conley couldn't be happier with their blended family.

That is, until a rainy Friday night when, on the way back from celebrating their anniversary, Peter and Leigh receive horrific news. Peter's son Kip, a high school senior, has crashed his truck and been arrested for drunk driving. And Leigh's fourteen-year-old daughter Chrissy was with him.

Twelve hours later, Chrissy is dead and Kip is charged with manslaughter.

Kip is a notorious troublemaker, but he's also a star student with a dazzling future ahead of him. Reeling with grief, Leigh nonetheless does her best to rally behind her husband and step-son. But Leigh is stunned when Kip changes his story, and claims that he wasn't driving after all--Chrissy was. Yet Peter clutches onto the story as the last, best hope to save his son. As they hurtle toward Kip's trial date, husband and wife are torn between loyalty to their children and to each other, while the mystery of what really happened that night looms large.

Through heart-racing suspense and heart-breaking drama, House on Fire is a profoundly moving novel from "a promising new voice" which "deftly examines the meaning and strength of family bonds and forgiveness" (Booklist).
