Arson

"Arson" by Estevan Vega was addictive, surprising, and at times a little bit confusing.  Overall, I would give it a 4/5 star rating.  The last third or so of the book has a completely different feeling than the first part, which is where the confusing part comes in.  You can tell that Vega is setting the story up for the sequel, but it makes the story seem a little disjointed.

But do not let this dissuade you from reading it.  The sudden twist draws you further into the pages and makes you fell the confusion just as the characters are experiencing it.  So once you step back from the last page, you are dying to know what happens next and can appreciate the brilliance of the confusion.  It is a good young adult paranormal read!

"The stories didn't seem to care who he was or what he could do;
it didn't matter.  In their world, he wasn't alone.  In their world,
a freak like him - like him - could become a hero."

Goodreads Synopsis:
Before now, three things were true: he both loved and despised his grandmother; his life was going nowhere; and he was alone.  But when a strange girl-who feels more normal behind a mask than inside her own skin-moves in next door, Arson hopes to find something he's never had: purpose.  After years of living in fear, he will be forced to confront his haunting past and embrace the unknown as he walks the fine line between boy and monster.
