Summary
Lucia has been kicked out of school, again, this time for stabbing a boy in the neck with a pencil. Her father is dead; her mother is in a mental institute; and she's living in a garage-turned-bedroom with her aunt. Making her way through the world with only a book, a Zippo lighter, and a pocket full of stolen licorice, Lucia spends her days riding the bus to visit her mother in The Home, avoiding the landlord who hates her, and following the only rule that makes any sense: Don't Do Things You Aren't Proud Of. But when Lucia discovers a secret Arson Club, she will do anything to be a part of it, and her life is suddently lit up. As Lucia's fascination with the Arson Club grows, her chronicle becomes a story of family, loss, misguided friendship, and destruction
