\n \nI don’t want to get out of bed. \nI’m so stupid. \nI did so many things wrong. \nI don’t know what to do. \nI’m going to be in so much trouble. \nWhat am I going to do? \nI’m completely screwed. \n \nIn 1991, fourteen-year-old Brent Runyon came home from school, doused his bathrobe in gasoline, put it on, and lit a match. \n \nHe suffered third-degree burns over 85% of his body and spent the next year recovering in hospitals and rehab facilities. During that year of physical recovery, Runyon began to question what he’d done, undertaking the complicated journey from near-death back to high school, and from suicide back to the emotional mainstream of life. \n \nIn the tradition of Running with Scissors and Girl, InterruptedThe Burn Journals is a truly remarkable book about teenage despair and recovery. \n \n
