Description

Life finally seems good to sixteen-year-old Dayle. No longer a self-conscious bookworm, she's captured the attention of Keith, the perfect dream boyfriend. Her worries are the same as those of most teens her age. She wants to stay friends with her long-time best friend Amy while pursuing the excitment of her relationship with Keith. At the same time, she has to fend off the embarrassing overtures of another friend Stu, and tend to her schoolwork and the usual demands of family. But suddenly Dayle's world turns inside out when a moment of carelessness causes tragedy. She is badly burned, and one of her friends is gravely injured. Stage by stage and day by day, Dayle endures, drawing strength from her family and friends and sustained by the memory of a strong and loving grandmother. Out of the Fire follows Dayle's despair and triumph as she learns painfully that her own resources go much deeper than appearances.
