The critically acclaimed author of "Crank" returns with a gripping, masterful novel, told in verse, that weaves a riveting story about a teenage girl who is raised in a fundamentally religious yet abusive family.
From the Publisher:
After being caught with a boy in a delicate situation by her father, Pattyn is sent away to live with her aunt in Nevada to find redemption for her bad behavior, but her aunt is different from anyone she has ever met and Pattyn comes to learn important things about herself that finally make her see that she is worthy of love and acceptance too. Reprint.
Annotation:
Set in verse, BURNED follows Pattyn, a Mormon teen trapped in an abusive family situation, longing for freedom. Looking for answers about God, love, and sex, Pattyn's rebellion gets her sent off to live with her aunt in rural Nevada. There, she finds both joy and an inability to escape her origins.

Praise

"Hopkins's incisive verses sometimes read in several directions as they paint the beautiful Nevada desert and the consequences of both nuclear testing at Yucca Mountain and Pattyn's tragic family history. Sharp and heartbreaking." 04/01/2006

"Told in elegant free verse, BURNED envelopes the reader in Pattyn's highs and lows, her gradual opening to love, and her bouts of rage, confusion, and doubt...A troubling but beautifully written novel." 06/01/2006
