“In Military Brats: After Burn” by Sherry D. Ficklin we see Reece who is a military brat and whose father just got re-stationed at Cherry Point Air Station. Reece, just after a few days at school, has two boys interested in her. As she gets to know them there is a bomb scare at the Base and she doesn’t think the MP’s are taking it seriously enough so she starts her on investigation. After an explosion there her father was hurt. Now she must find the person who did this before more people are hurt. The only problem is all the evidence is pointing to Greg, one of the boys she likes. Is Greg the culprit or is someone else framing him?
Sherry D. Ficklin’s book is a wonderful young adult book that isn’t just about romance but also has a mystery that needs to be solved. It intrigued me to the point where I had to keep reading to find out who was causing the trouble on the Base. Reece’s character was well written and I could picture the characters and the scenes in my mind. I personally think this would be a good book for everyone to read, not just young adults. I look forward to reading the next installment of this series.
