The first fire started almost by accident. A wastebasket fire in the school library. Jill Franks and her friends found it exciting. And it got them out of school for a few hours.
Who could have guessed that the fire game would quickly spread? That one fire would lead to another? That Jill, and Andrea, and Diane, and the three boys they hung out with would find themselves caught up in the most dangerous-and deadly-game of all?
When one of their fires ends in murder, the game ends - and the real terror begins. All of them realize that someone is playing the game for keeps. Now Jill has no choice. She knows she must find the murderer - before her life goes up in flames!
