Pattyn's father is dead. Now she's on the run in this riveting companion to New York Times bestseller Burned , which Kirkus Reviews calls "a strong, painful, and tender piece about wresting hope from the depths of despair."

Pattyn Von Stratten's father is dead, and Pattyn is on the run. After far too many years of abuse at the hands of her father, and after the tragic loss of her beloved Ethan and their unborn child, Pattyn is desperate for peace. Only her sister Jackie knows what happened that fatal night, but she is stuck at home with their mother, who clings to normalcy by allowing the truth to be covered up by their domineering community leaders. Her father might be finally gone, but without Pattyn, Jackie is desperately isolated.

Alone and in disguise, Pattyn starts a new life as a migrant worker on a California ranch. But is it even possible to rebuild a life when everything you've known has burned to ash and lies seem far safer than the truth?

Bestselling author Ellen Hopkins continues the riveting story of Pattyn Von Stratten she began in Burned to explore what it takes to rise from the ashes, put ghosts to rest, and step into a future.

Great sequel to BURNED and so glad she wrote the sequel as BURNED rather left you wondering . But Author did a super job with SMOKE and just love Ellen Hopkins style of verse writing . Very interesting and usually controversial topics . Want to read everything she's wrote .

Thank you, Ellen Hopkins, for restoring my faith in you! After reading Burned, I was ready to give up on you completely for your devastating stories that just rip my heart in two! But this story saved the day, and I'm happy about the way things turned out.
