Not for the faint of heart.

A terribly tragic true story, The Burn Journals is beautiful in itself.

Autobiography. Brent Runyon was 14 when he poured gasoline on his bathrobe and set himself afire. Book details the year that follows with intensive care and rehab, family therapy and eventually returning to high school. Descriptions of depressed and violent thinking that continue well past the fire.
