Publisher's Summary

Raised in a stern, abusive Mormon household, a teenage girl starts to question her religion and struggles to find her destiny.

Her father is abusive, her mother is submissive, and her church looks the other way. Confused and angry, Pattyn Von Stratten acts out and is sent to live with an aunt on a Nevada ranch. She finds the love and acceptance she craves, with disturbing consequences.

I cried

As an ex-Mormon, this book seemed so interesting. After reading it, I can't stop crying. This was such a beautiful story of finding love and family and yourself.

Burned by Ellen Hopkins

I did not love this book. It was okay. If you were to ask me, "should I buy it", I'd ask you what you were expecting. If you're expecting the same quality as Crank and Glass, I'd say No. If you were just interested in reading more from this offer, then sure, go ahead. But, it is not as good as those other two books. I have read this book and Perfect by Ellen Hopkins, but neither comes close to the same feeling I had reading Crank and Glass.

Burned!!!

Ellen Hopkins does it again! What beautifully tragic story written in only the way Hopkins can. A store of religion, abuse, love, and death, Ellen captures the voice of a young girl who lived it all. The perfect cliffhanger ending to leave you wanting more. I can’t wait to get on to the next.

Likeable Characters, Bad Writing, Bad Performance

Author does not seem to know the definition difference between simple words like "and" and "but." It feels like the author was writing with a thesaurus with no understanding of context of situation and word choice.

The author has the main character write in a journal with seemingly no other purpose than to communicate feelings and information, 90% of which the author already told us and made clear so very repetitive.

There is a very annoying fairy-like musical noise played throughout the performance possibly as a way of signifying a new chapter.

The narrator had very bad timing and tone, etc. interpretation was not good.

It felt like the author was writing about a lot of things she knew nothing about such as ranch life, riding horses, young adult vocabulary, independent women, etc.

The book really needs a good editor or a different editor and a better performance.

Overall the book came off as very hokie, which is too bad since the book tried to address some very important topics.

Always been a fan

I’ve always been a huge fan of Hopkins and her writing style. I liked this story back when I read it when I was 15 and liked it now as a 28 year old woman. I’m excited to read the sequel!
