Burn Down, Rise Up by Vincent Tirado Review

Today Heather recommends Vincent Tirado's BURN DOWN, RISE  UP. We hope you'll check it out! 

Burn Down, Rise Up by Vincent Tirado

"Stranger Things meets Get Out in this Sapphic Horror debut from nonbinary, Afro-Latine author Vincent Tirado.

Mysterious disappearances.

An urban legend rumored to be responsible.

And one group of teens determined to save their city at any cost.

For over a year, the Bronx has been plagued by sudden disappearances that no one can explain. Sixteen-year-old Raquel does her best to ignore it. After all, the police only look for the white kids. But when her crush Charlize's cousin goes missing, Raquel starts to pay attention—especially when her own mom comes down with a mysterious illness that seems linked to the disappearances.

Raquel and Charlize team up to investigate, but they soon discover that everything is tied to a terrifying urban legend called the Echo Game. The game is rumored to trap people in a sinister world underneath the city, and the rules are based on a particularly dark chapter in New York's past. And if the friends want to save their home and everyone they love, they will have to play the game and destroy the evil at its heart—or die trying.!!"

Heather's Review


Monsters, mold, mayhem, mystery! I could add some other M words like Marvelous, but I will stop bothering you with that!

I adored this book, I adored the characters, I adored the mystery. I adored the whole back story holding it together.

The characters are stubborn and loving and fight for the people they love and the place they live.

It's definitely a fun story! You should definitely check out! These are the books high school me would have ate up. I'm glad the younger generation of kids of color get to see themselves kicking butt in books!!
