Will Christina and her friends survive the winter at the Schooner Inne with their sanity intact?

No one ever really paid close attention to the faces of the missing children on the milk cartons. But as Janie Johnson glanced at the face of the ordinary little girl with her hair in tight pigtails, wearing a dress with a narrow white collar-a three-year-old who had been kidnapped twelve years before from a shopping mall in New Jersey-she felt overcome with shock. The bestselling author of The Face on the Milk Carton ratchets up the tension in this thriller about a girl who will stop at nothing to separate the truth from the lies. Will Christina and her friends survive the winter at the Schooner Inne with their sanity intact?

I loved this book and it was awesome. no problem with it except for the beginning. The beginning was just very hard to understand. It was constantly switching between points of view, but I got by. overall great book.

It's been a while since I read all of Caroline B. Cooney's books, but thankfully, this was as good as her previous works. I was apprehensive going into this book, knowing it was going to deal with race and unsure how well it would be able to do that. Overall, I'm pleased. I mean, honestly, any book that even acknowledges racism as a THING is doing it right, without pretending it's only a thing that happened in the past. I was worried that it would quickly get turned into a white savior story, with a white main character and a white author, but it MOSTLY dodged that bullet, rather choosing to be a story about self-reflection and societal biases and the importance of educating oneself. I liked that the focus was so much on Macey's self-discovery on racist ideas in her community, her family, and herself, and how those evolved over time, as well as practical things she could do to concretely make a difference in her community. In the end, it isn't really about a specific arson in 1959, it's about a culture of ignorance and hatred that makes one such event possible.

Burning Up by Caroline B. Cooney is a very enjoyable book. I could not put it down. This book addressed many issues teenagers face today. Some issues that are talked about are first crushes, unbearable parents, true friendships, and even ethical issues. After reading the book, I realized how the past really does effect the present! What are parents went through when they were younger still has an effect on the world today. I also started to appreciate what I have and the opportunities I am given. The book explored the life of inner-city kids and what they have to go through.
Macey, the main character, is on a mission. For her history project she has to research something that happened in her town?s past. So Macey decides to investigate a fire that burned down a barn in her neighbor hood over forty years ago. While she is dealing with this matter, she runs into many challenges. Not only is being a teenager tough, but it seems as if no one will tell her what really happened. Was it an accident or was it a protest? If this isn?t hard enough, dealing with her first crush, Austin, and trying to do what feels right presents even more obstacles.
The main reason I liked this book was because I could relate to what Macey was feeling. I knew how she felt in different situations because I have been there. I think any teenager would love to read this book. I definitely rate this a five star book!!

Burning Up is about a girl named Macey. She is just like any other average kid she goes to school, gets good grades, and helps out at the local church on Saturday's. When she gets assigned a report and has to do research and find a topic she picks the fire that happened across from her grand parents house that sounds inserting to do cause she knows nothing about that fire.
She asks her grandparents about it and they act like they don't know anything. Then when she asks Mr. Fent Austin's grand parents, they encourage her to quit researching on that topic. She hunts all over town until she finds a lady named Mrs. Vinson. She tells Macey that some- one burnt down the house because an African-American man lived there. Mrs. Vinson tells Macey that the man's name was Mr. Sibley and that he was a school teacher and the kids parents hated their kids are being taught by an African-American. So one day someone burnt down the barn, witch was the apartment at the time that Mr. Sibley was living in. My opinion was that if you like reading about mysteries and about how African-Americans were mistreated by the way they looked then this is a perfect book for you. Also need to read the book to find out who did it and why!!
