Girl on Fire

by Melinda Skye

Orphaned teen Brigitta Bayer is about to begin a lifetime journey of seeking her green-eyed hero—and of becoming a superhero in her own right.


At fifteen, orphan Brigitta Bayer was caught up in a tragedy of historical proportions. Yet she was spared by the 1939 explosion that killed so many others. Instead, her feet were set on a path of gradual discovery, a path testing her limits, bravery, friendship and faith, and above all patience, a path leading through the twentieth century to the green-eyed hero who seems her only hope of understanding what she has become, something out of fiction, a worker of wind and flame, so that the next time tragedy strikes she will be ready. Every superhero has an origin story, and this ember began in a blaze.
