• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Firebug (Firebug, #1) by Lish McBride

Genre: YA Paranormal

Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.

Release Date: September 23, 2014

Goodreads Synopsis:

Ava can start fires with her mind . . . but is it a blessing or a curse?

Ava is a firebug—she can start fires with her mind. Which would all be well and good if she weren't caught in a deadly contract with the Coterie, a magical mafia. She's one of their main hit men . . . and she doesn't like it one bit. Not least because her mother's death was ordered by Venus—who is now her boss.

When Venus asks Ava to kill a family friend, Ava rebels. She knows very well that you can't say no to the Coterie and expect to get away with it, though, so she and her friends hit the road, trying desperately to think of a way out of the mess they find themselves in. Preferably keeping the murder to a minimum.


“‘Who was near your drink?’
‘Ryan, of course, and the bartender. Maybe some of the waitstaff…’
‘Is that what you call careful?’ Lock said. ‘Would it be faster for you to list who isn’t a suspect?’
‘Don’t yell at me!’” (Hardback, pg. 122)
