The Boy Who Played Fire, Part 1, is a story about four non-conformists teens playing around the Underground Railway of London with their spray paints, lighter and stuff. They try to find some mythological bright emerald green dragon for fun, without minding whether it's really true or not. But everything changed it's course when Pax, one of the four 4sq member, found something that truly defines reality to superstitious.
This novel upholds the value of (1) telling teenagers to think out of the box. Jess Scott really emphasizes this in her book that being an average teen is not worth living and is too mainstream. This book tells every teens to put to a test everything they wanted to do, meaning they should try what they want to do or want to make something for the sake of their own satisfaction. This is the stage wherein rich innovations comes out, therefore we should not conceal our thoughts and we will just let it flow from the realm of ideas out to the known reality; and (2) challenging the norms as the key to a holistic development. In short, being passive to the society will do no good because we actually stop the process of development of the society we wherein. Therefore it very essential not to accept immediately the norms we grown in and to question everything that comes in our way.
Jess Scott again won my heart for the second time around (read my first review of her work here) because of the characters and of the plot. Really, her book is out of the usual.The dragon stuff and weird characters put me on the edge of my seat waiting what lays ahead of the story. Jess Scott is the perfect example of an author who practices the notion "WRITE TO EXPRESS not to IMPRESS".
I love this book and I am looking forward to read parts 2 and 3...
You made it again, Ms. Jess Scott.
