Ember Fury

Publisher: Headline

Review

Ember's life has always been unconventional,  but she was happy once. Now, her mother is dead, her celebrity father and stepmother live on the other side of the world and, unsurprisingly, Ember has 'issues'. As she passes the vacation in Dad's Malibu mansion, Ember presents a facade of disinterested cool but internally she struggles to keep her anger under control knowing that if she lets go, the consequences are likely to ignite a whole inferno of trouble.

Presented as a hybrid of diary, and graphic novel, with added film directions and notes to self, Ember's story is liberally illustrated and refreshingly distinctive. Deceptively easy to read but full of depth, humour, emotion and quality storytelling.
