    The Boy in the Burning House

    Well i just finished this book and i liked it cute here is the thingy that tells u about about the book.

    Two years after his father mysteriously dissappared, Jim Hawkins is coping-barley. Underneath he's frozen in uncertainty and grief.
    Then Jim meets Ruth Rose- moody, provocative, the punky, bad-girl stepdaughter of Jim's fathers childhood friend, the town pastor Father Fisher. Ruth Rose shocks Jim out of his stupor when she tells him Father Fisher is a murderer. The she shocks him again. "Don't you want to know whohe murdered?" she asks.
    In spite of his uneasiness, Jim begins to burn with a desire for the truth. What's the real meaning of the strange prayers that Father Fisher intones in his privite sanctuary? Why does Ruth Rose suddenly dissappear? And what really happend on New Year's Eve thirty years ago when a boy died in a burining house?
    Stirring up the embers of the past can be a risky buisiness. As danger closes in and the past threatens to become more unsettling than he can bear, Jim must decide: Should he trust or betray a friend? And should he hold his father's memory sacred- Or dare to confront the truth?
