The Burning review ë E-book, or Kindle E-pub Æ ➦ [Ebook] ➡ The Burning By Laura Bates ➱ – A rumor is like fire Once a whore always a whore Roses are redViolets are blue Anna's a slut We all know it's true And a fire that spreads online is impossible to extinguish New school Check New town A rumCed And whose story has unsettling parallels to Anna's ownFrom Laura Bates internationally renowned feminist and founder of the Everyday Sexism Project comes a debut novel for the metoo era It's a powerful call to action reminding all readers of the implications of sexism and the role we can each play in ending it. Actual rating 45 stars in my opinion it would have made a lot sense if he had said that fire was like a rumour Because fire is sneaky You might think you've extinguished it but one creeping red tendril one single wisp of smoke is enough to let it leap back to life againTold from the perspective of Anna Clark The Burning discussed some important issues of sexism sexual harassment and online abuse Anna and her mum had moved all the way to Scotland from Birmingham due to a tragedy of sexual online harassment that had struck her She changed her last name got rid of her social media and moved to another country trying to erase her past thinking it'd never find its way back to her but she was proven wrong when her past haunted her yet again in a worse possible way I guess things don't always turn out the way you think they willThe pace of the story was moderate I find the story of Maggie included in between was uite draggy at first but although I still find it uite irrelevant to the whole plot it was an interesting tale and it brought another kind of emotional ride to the storyAnna was drawn to Robin a boy in one of her class but I love how the story didn't center around their love interest or relationship I'm especially glad that the author didn't turn the story around and make the main character a helpless young lady who needed to be saved by a boy or by love but instead showed strong female character traits in both Anna and her mum towards the end when handling the situationI highly recommend this book to everyone yes boys included God bless Laura Bates for writing Anna's and Maggie's stories Actions have conseuences young lady You'd do well to remember thatDisclaimer I would like to thank Pansing for this ARC in exchange for honest review This book will be published in February 2019 and will be available at all good bookstores Pick it up once it's out

Thanks to Netgalley and SOURCEBOOKS FIRE for an egalley in exchange for an honest reviewAlready published in the UK in 2019 The Burning tackles the issues of slut shaming and cyberbullying and draws comparisons to the witch burnings of Scotland's past I found it a very interesting read and read it one evening but I will concur with my fellow reviewers that there is a tonne of issues Issues that not just the main character Anna grapples with but also other characters in the story However it worked for me and caught my attention much like The Truth About Alice and Speak did Goodreads review published 070420Publication Date 070420
