From acclaimed author Ashley Woodfolk, Nothing Burns as Bright as You is an impassioned story about queer love, grief, and the complexity of female friendship that will keep your heart racing, and breaking, until the very last page.
Two girls. One wild and reckless day. Years of tumultuous history unspooling like a thin, fraying string in the hours after they set a fire.
They were best friends. Until they became more. Their affections grew. Until the blurry lines became dangerous.
Over the course of a single day, the depth of their past, the confusion of their present, and the unpredictability of their future is revealed. And the girls will learn that hearts, like flames, aren’t so easily tamed.
It starts with a fire.
How will it end?
“A tautly written, fast-moving novel… that captures the unbalanced experience of an all-consuming love.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"The rich language describing the way the two love each other is magnificent... A beautiful, emotionally charged novel."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"All of Woodfolk’s choices—every line break, indentation, and italicisation... Even the blank space on the page helps to carry this piece to its full potential as a feverishly gripping, immersive, and emotional ride that will stick with readers for a long time... A masterfully crafted love letter to tumultuous, young, queer love and its lessons."
School Library Journal (starred review)
"Unapologetically shows the more challenging elements of falling—and staying—in love… This book has completely transformed the way I think about what it means to love unconditionally."
