Two years ago, Josie Smith's life went up in smoke. Literally. Everyone and everything she ever loved burned in a fire—one set by a crooked cop. To survive, Josie's been living under the radar as a homeless kid while trying to find a way to knock the cop down a few notches and put her on the other side of the prison bars. But time's running out. A pimp's got his eye on Josie, and if she doesn't get off the streets soon, she'll be the one brought down. Her salvation and the key to the cop's undoing seem to lie with a car thief and a rich kid. Trust and teamwork don't come easily to Josie—in fact, they don't come at all—but if she can't find a way to make the team work and find justice for her family, she will get burned all over again.

Part of RETRIBUTION—a high-interest trilogy that can be read in any order.

    Gr 9 Up-Wealthy trust-fund baby Jace seems to have it all in Unleashed, but trouble brews under the surface; he is constantly trying to protect his brother from their father's abuse, and their mother's neglect. As he trains to defend himself, he gradually learns trust through two girls who are also working toward retribution. In Burned, Josie is scraping by as a homeless teen after a dirty cop set her house ablaze. She has to team up with unlikely partners in order to exact justice for her family. Raven survives as the protege of a car theft boss in Exposed, training new recruits. But when her boss reveals himself to be a murderer, Raven is determined to bring him down. Falling on the longer side of hi-lo spectrum, these titles boast an average of 150 pages. However, large text and middle grade reading levels make the series accessible to struggling teen readers.
