The cover and title got my attention. I think this a cool cover and I liked the title. I started reading and made it to page 19. Maybe things pick up but I honestly don't feel like reading the rest of this book even though it is really short. It just doesn't seem to be for me. It just didn't capture my interest. I'm able to put down a book if I can't get into it. I see no need to force myself to read a book when there are so many other books out there to experience and enjoy.
Maybe I'm dumb but I felt like I was missing something. I'm not sure why the people in this book would pack up all of their belongings and put them in the basement while the fire children came down and stayed in their homes. I suppose things could become clearer later on in the book but I don't feel like finding out. I'm not even sure what this book is about. None of the characters stood out to me in any sort of way.
