YA Review – Ablaze

Boyle, M. Liz. Ablaze. 2020.

ABOUT THE BOOK

From the author’s website

This summer the Stanley sisters and the Miles boys are excited to hike together again, and now they have the unique opportunity to help two of their ranger friends with an outdoor program in the beautiful Montana mountains. 

Marlee has always considered herself a willing follower. Give her a direction and she’s happy to help. Her older sister Ellie is a natural leader, and Marlee is content in her role as assistant.

Marlee and her sisters have been assigned to help with Ranger Rose’s team, and they are savoring the adventure. But in a heartbeat while the group is divided by a few hundred feet, fire breaks out between Ranger Rose and Marlee’s group. In this enthralling finale to the Off the Itinerary series, Marlee must face her fears with courage that only God can provide.

MY REVIEW

I have enjoyed getting to know the Miles and Stanley kids in M. Liz Boyle’s Off the Itinerary series. The story in Ablaze focuses on Marlee as the adults in her life try to foster her natural leadership abilities while Marlee struggles with her own insecurities. These are issues that many teens struggle with, so they will be able to relate to Marlee. Boyle also includes information about forests and fires. There is enough action to keep the story moving – it was a “can’t put this down” book for me. If you’ve read the previous books in the series, you know about the friendship between Marshall and Marlee – it adds an interesting element to the story in Ablaze. 

Teens who enjoy adventure and the outdoors will enjoy Ablaze and the other books in Liz Boyle’s Off the Itinerary series. 

Ablaze would make a great addition to a K-12 Christian school library. It is appropriate for high school, middle school, and possibly older elementary.

I received a complimentary copy of Ablaze. This is my honest review.
