Burning by Elana K. Arnold

Ben: Having just graduated from high school, Ben is set to leave Gypsum, Nevada. It’s good timing since the gypsum mine that is the lifeblood of the area is closing, shutting the whole town down with it. Ben is lucky: he’s headed to San Diego, where he’s got a track scholarship at the University of California. But his best friends, Pete and Hog Boy, don’t have college to look forward to, so to make them happy, Ben goes with them to check out the hot chick parked on the side of Highway 447.

Lala: She and her Gypsy family earn money by telling fortunes. Some customers choose Tarot cards; others have their palms read. The thousands of people attending the nearby Burning Man festival spend lots of cash–especially as Lala gives uncanny readings. But lately Lala’s been questioning whether there might be more to life than her upcoming arranged marriage. And the day she reads Ben’s cards is the day that everything changes for her. . . and for him.

  1. Hmm, pare o carte interesanta si mi-ar place sa o citesc. Sunt sigura ca Lala ajunge sa se indragosteasca de Ben si invers.

  2. Cred ca este prima poveste YA/NA a carui actiune se desfasoara intr-o lume putin mai neobisnuita- lumea Gypsy, lumea tarotului si a destinului. Dar e si lumea traditiilor vechi, in care casatoriile aranjate sunt un obicei de cand lumea lor a luat nastere si cine il incalca risca expulzarea din mijlocul familiei sau chiar mai rau! Inca o intrebare-stiu sunt enervanta, dar curiozitatea e de vina! :)) E o carte contemporary (asa cum cred eu) sau fantasy ?🙂

      • Oh-oh- ce bine ar fi daca Ed Epica sau Trei ar achizitiona drepturile de publicare in Romania🙂 Mai ales ca e o carte cu un personaj Gypsy🙂

      • rare sanse sa apara cartea asta la noi … sunt multe carti de la ei care sunt wow! , dar la noi probabil nu vor aparea niciodata

      • alexandrasutila98- oamenii mai si mananca, stii :)))))) trebuie sa-si plateasca si factura la incalzire, chiria, utilitatile etccccc……. :)) asa ca nu fii pesimista- se vor achizitiona unele titluri foarte bune-poate chiar acesta- ‘Burning’- pt. ca nimanui nu-i place sa ramana fara bani- si, doar nu-i vom exclude pe angajatii de le edituri :)))

      • DA ce coneaza cine o publica ? S-o publice oricare numa s-o publice ca ei publica carti pe care nu le ia nimeni si pe tin 2-3 ani pe rafturi

      • Ooooooo superb, ador lumea gipsy, cu atat mai mult contemporana, cu o poveste de dragoste pe fundal, carti de tarot etc, imi place mult, cred ca e prima aparitie in acest sens contemporana

    • Si pe mine ma face curioasa aceasta lume. Nu am mai citit nici o carte de genu acesta. Si eu m-am gandit la inceput ca poate fi povestita din perspectivele ambelor personaje, dupa descriere.

      • Din mai multe perspective am vazut dar n-am vazut una despre tigani scrisa de autori straini

  3. It is a contemporary! And yes, the book tells the story from both Ben and Lala’s perspectives. I hope you will enjoy it; I very much enjoyed researching the subject and lost myself in the hot desert landscape and flame-hot attraction between the characters. Thanks for featuring BURNING!

  4. Ce interesanta e cartea!Si coperta imi place,si titlul,dar pacat ca nu i se vede fata fetei.Sunt curioasa sa vad cum arata.Pare hotarata in coperta.

  5. Pe mine numai coperta ma atragea dar dupa ce am aflat despre ce este vorba pe cuvant daca nu chiar im pare rau ca nu o gasesc si in romana. O poveste de dragoste interzisa, mai ales ca legea la gipsy e lege, iar casatoriile impuse nu mai sunt de mult un secret
