Today’s review is for Everything That Burns by Gita Trelease.
This book was just beautiful and magical. I loved seeing the growth of the characters, especially Camille. I also loved seeing Camille and Lazare’s relationship develop and Sophie come into her own with her dress shop. Everything That Burns takes place during the French Revolution where magic is persecuted. Speaking of magic, Camille, who no longer wants to do magic, uses it unintentionally when printing pamphlets using her father’s old printing press to tell the stories of a group of girls that she meets called The Lost Girls. The Lost Girls were an intriguing group of characters, each with their own special talent. I loved reading about The Lost Girls and their stories. I loved how the story ended, it wasn’t rushed and everything came together nicely. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
