Brent Runyon was fourteen years old when he set himself on fire. In 'The Burn Journals', Runyon describes that devastating suicide attempt and his recovery, both physical and psychological, over the following year.
He shares his story with such unflinching honesty that we understand - with a terrible clarity - what it means to want to kill yourself and how it feels to struggle back towards normality. Intense, exposed, insightful, 'The Burn Journals' is a deeply personal story with universal reach.
It is impossible to look away. Impossible to remain unmoved.
