First, there was a match.

In 1992, Tarah Kiersey wasn't feeling very optimistic about her life. From dead-end jobs to dead-end relationships, she failed to see how anything could ever improve. But at least, she had her music.

Then, there was a spark.

There was something about holding a microphone that made Tarah feel alive. And there was something about how she sang that made people listen. One of those people included William Stacy, a young musician who invited Tarah to join his band, Fire. She said yes and her entire life changed overnight.

And now there's FIRE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let's go back to the 90s! Oh, this book takes me back! The 90s - the music, pop culture stories and of course, being out on your own for the first time! This book took me on a roller coaster ride emotionally, the characters reminding me so much of people I knew back during the 90s, the music that we loved, the issues that seemed like such a big deal when you are so young. This book moves so fast that I can barely keep up with it! Follow a group of 20 somethings as they enter the music business and learn that it is full of a lot of untrustworthy people, unscrupulous media, as they deal with the everyday dramas of life along with the insanity of celebrity. A must read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Definite Must Read! There is something really compelling about this book that kept me from putting it down the moment I started reading it. I loved how each chapter was structured and written. Not overtly long and overbearing or too short and bare. I think that a good indication of how captivating a book is, is by how eager you feel the urge to continue reading after a chapter has come to a close -- something I experienced many, many times over and over. However, do not get me wrong, this book is not a suspense thriller novel but it does leave you hanging on the edge questioning your expectations as to might possible unfold next. All of us must have at some point dreamed about being a famous celebrity or at least idolized them like a god. And because of this we sometimes forget just how human they really are. We all experience hardship, stress, heartache and depression at some point in our lives. Some maybe more often and/or longer than others. This book I find, helps us keep our perspectives in checked and offers a glimpse into the mind of a young adult growing up in the 90's living a what seems to be a dead end life, with dreams that seem to be too big and beyond her reach. A rut that many teens and young adults were in while growing up in the 90's and still persists today (to some degree), as society's notion of and distinction of "success" and "happiness" are blurred and constantly under scrutiny. Although the characters and events are fictional, I was still able to relate and associate many different aspects of them to my own life. Which probably is another factor as to why this book is so appealing to me. It surprises me at how many of the characters are able to develop throughout the book without compromising the protagonist's own development. After all, a good book is only as good as how well a reader is able to make them come alive in their own minds given what is written on paper. With that all said and done, I would definitely recommend Fire to all the young adults out there, as well as present a challenge to everyone else to give this book a chance. Who knows? You just might end up liking it as much as I do. You will never know until you give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock & Roll!!! Tarah's story drew me in and I finished this book in half a weekend! "Fire" is an unflinching look at the music industry in the 90's and the ups and downs of the decade. An impressive first novel by Mima-- I'm eagerly awaiting her next!
