Description

Everyone hates Darren, the firebug, the bad boy trouble follows everywhere. Alison finds a warmth to Darren, a spark everyone's missing. Alison knows what she's doing, but after tonight's fireworks, she'll find out who knows best. Can Alison play with fire without getting burned?

Palefire, the first collaboration between writer MK Reed and artist Farel Dalrymple, takes us back to high school for a hot date to the party of the year. When you're not a girl, and not yet a woman, the last thing you want is advice. The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, but everyone deserves a second chance--even if it goes up in flames.

Farel Dalrymple is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Wrenchies (First Second). He has also collaborated with author Jonathan Lethem (Motherless Brooklyn, The Fortress of Solitude) on Omega the Unknown (Marvel Comics). His comic, Pop Gun War, was a Xeric Grant recipient and gold medal winner from the Society of Illustrators. He is a co-founder of the comic anthology, Meathaus.

MK Reed is the author of the graphic novels Americus and The Cute Girl Network (First Second). Her work can be found in anthologies like Papercutter, The Big Feminist But, and the Swedish magazine Galago. Americus was the winner of NAIBA's 2012 Carla Cohen Free Speech Award and was a 2011 American Booksellers for Children's New Voices title.
