However, the novel begins to gain momentum roughly halfway through the story. As the first book in a series of four, Fire Starter is narrated by a young girl between 14 and 15 years of age who experiences her first love. The events of the novel and her interactions with her boyfriend cause her to mature in her outlook. This is reflected much later in the novel when the reader is exposed to much darker and more mature plot points.
In short, the book is off to a slow start but be patient. The story does get more interesting and the pacing, combined with a multitude of twists and unexpected turns of events will make it worth your while.
Of course, the aliens never really let go that easily, especially when Alice, our main protagonist of this book discovers that there is more that meets the eye. The dialogue and topics discussed between the characters are also surprisingly real, i.e. the affections for a boy, dreary eyes, boyfriend material, humorous bantering, teenage flirting etc...
Furthermore, the balance of science fiction alien theme combined with teenage drama is well judged, with neither themes overpowering each other, and with the promise of the series is going to be narrated from different characters.
Firestarter is certainly a great introductory book in what is turning out to be quite an enticing YA science fiction themed series, especially with its refreshing and unique appeal.
Overall, regardless whether you are a science fiction, fantasy, or teenage romance fan, there is something for you all in this book.
Wish it was a little more sci fy in it like cooler powers or more alien stuff; but i'll hold out hope for that in sequels.
