Pattyn’s father is dead. Now she’s on the run in this riveting companion to the New York Times bestselling Burned.

Pattyn Von Stratten’s father is dead, and Pattyn is on the run. After far too many years of abuse at the hands of her father, and after the tragic loss of her beloved Ethan and their unborn child, Pattyn is desperate for peace. Only her sister Jackie knows what happened that night, but she is stuck at home with their mother, who clings to normalcy by allowing the truth to be covered up by their domineering community leaders. Her father might be finally gone, but without Pattyn, Jackie is desperately isolated.

Alone and in disguise, Pattyn starts a new life as a migrant worker on a California ranch. But is it even possible to rebuild a life when everything you’ve known has burned to ash and lies seem far safer than the truth?

Bestselling author Ellen Hopkins continues the riveting story of Pattyn Von Stratten she began in Burned to explore what it takes to rise from the ashes, put ghosts to rest, and step into a future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sequel! Smoke, the sequel to Burned, brings back Pattyn Von Stratten, this time on the run from the police after the death of her father. Pattyn tries to start a new life far from home, without Ethan. Her younger sister Jackie is the only one who knows what happened the night their father died but she has her own secrets and, with Pattyn gone, has no one she can turn to. I was worried, with how much I enjoyed Burned, that this sequel wouldn't live up to expectations, but I enjoyed this one just as much, if not more, than Burned. Burned was focused mostly on Pattyn and her finding herself and love. In Smoke, it's told in both Pattyn and Jackie's POVs so we get two different stories, two different character arcs. I really liked getting Jackie's story and more about the home life as well as Pattyn's story with her on the run. It's impossible not to feel for these girls. And the side characters that were introduced, Adriana, Angel, Sophie, Gavin, were all so likeable(and adorable in some cases). The contrast between the two girls' stories was really good. Pattyn alone, trying to rebuild herself after what happened in the first book. Jackie surrounded by family but voiceless. Both of them discovering this strength inside them. I love Ellen Hopkins' writing style, can't write a review without mentioning that. The first time I just read through the book but then I can spend hours going through the pages and looking at the way the words are positioned to see "hidden" sentences. There's no shying away from hard topics or the hard questions. Knowing the right thing to do doesn't mean it's easy. I did have to step away from reading a few times during the book. It just got a little too overwhelming. I do kind of wish we'd gotten at least one character from the LDS faith who wasn't so willing to stay silent to give a bit of balance to the religious community aspect of the books. Overall, I'm happy a sequel was written and it definitely lived up to my expectations. *I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for an honest review.
