Burning Up

Burning Up

Fifteen-year-old Macey Clare loves her Connecticut hometown, where her mother grew up and her grandparents still live, and she likes visiting her grandparents even more now that their neighbors' handsome grandson, Austin, has moved in.   But when Macey decides to research the history of a burned-out barn across the street from her grandparents' home for a school report, she gets a shock about what happened. Nobody can change the past, but is Macey ready to take the responsibility for the present and in the process reveal dark secrets about her town and the people she loves?
