He just had a thing about fire.
Mark Charm is a pyromaniac. Since the time he was a child, he loved to watch fires. But it is only in his senior year of high school that he takes his personal obsession citywide. It is a dry autumn in Southern California and the desert winds are blowing. Mark has a box of matches, and it is late at night. Would it be so bad, he thinks, if the whole state burned?

Grade 9 Up-Mark Charm is not your average high school student, even in the Los Angeles of the near future. Nor is he your average pyromaniac. This teen is able to start fires with the power of his mind. This pyro-kinetic ability leads him and his girlfriend into a crusade to free Earth from alien domination. The story is so convoluted that it is hard to follow. The premise is implausible-aliens have harvested human brains and are keeping them in vats, but the humans don't realize this has happened-but this is not what has really happened at all. Fans of the genre may enjoy this book, but average thrill-seeking students will soon lose interest in its twisted plot.
