The Burn Journals by Brent Runyon Nonfiction Biography * * * Stars (Pretty good) This book was written about a boy’s suicide attempt when he lit himself on fire. He writes about his stay in the hospital and extensive surgeries and operations. I thought it was kind of gross, but also inspiring to experience his process of regaining self-respect.
