Things You Save in a Fire

From the very first chapter, I was completely invested in this book. Cassie was every bit the bad ass I expected her to be and more. I enjoyed the camaraderie she had with her fellow firefighters in Texas and eventually in Massachusetts, and I didn’t mind one bit that she didn’t fully believe in love. (which is based on an incident that occurred in her past)


Home. This book felt so much like home for me and I held onto that feeling throughout the story. As a first generation Jamaican-America, this book reminded me of some of my favorite memories growing up as a child; spending weekends with my grandmother, Sunday family dinners, visiting the Caribbean bakery with my dad. The list goes on and on.
