Read an exclusive extract from My Life on Fire by Cath Howe

This April we’re absolutely thrilled to be publishing My Life on Fire  – a tense, page-turning story that sensitively deals with themes of family upheaval and kleptomania, by bestselling author Cath Howe.

And today we’re very pleased to be sharing the first few chapters of the book – you can read an extract below!

Ren’s family lose their home in a fire. They’re living with her grandmother now and things are a bit tense.

Ren lost her collection of things, her clothes; her brother lost his little bear and is inconsolable. So Ren starts replacing things with other people’s possessions. They’ve got loads of stuff, after all.

But she gets caught and has to strike a terrifying deal to avoid detection…

Take a look inside:

My Life on Fire will be published on April 6th – you can order a copy from Waterstones here, here, or from Amazon here. Do let us know on socials what you thought of the first few chapters when you’ve finished reading!
