Fire Girl Forest Boy


Maya and Raul are ‘Fire Girl Forest Boy‘. Their worlds and experiences are so different, yet they are drawn together through deceit, loss and the need for truth.

Maya awakens to discover her scientist father missing. His note urges her to trust the people arrived to escort her to the airport from where she will fly home to Glasgow, leaving the Peruvian Amazon. Yet Maya’s photographic memory includes images that make her mistrust these people, and her father’s situation. How can a city girl, entirely unfamiliar with the jungle, hope to escape and survive in such a hostile setting?

Raul is running back to the jungle. This was his home before an accident for which he blames himself. Matias urges him home. He’s been sent a sign.

What happens when ‘Fire Girl Forest Boy‘ collide? Are their motives compatible? Do they share the same dangers? How can a city girl and jungle boy hope to understand each other? What does Maya have that can possibly strengthen their survival in such an other-worldly environment? How can Raul, one boy, hope to survive against the might of science and industry?

Chloe Daykin has created a spectacular story in ‘Fire Girl Forest Boy’. There is magic, adventure, drama and a heart-breaking message of loss- personal, moral and environmental- in this wonderful story. Bookwagon is proud to recommend this book to our readers.
