Everything outside is fire - Paper Girl by Cindy R. Wilson

“Wilson made me care about the major and minor characters, root for their successes. I read Paper Girl in one sitting.” – Amy’s Book Reviews
“Paper Girl was unique in the way other elements were explored so that the whole story wasn't just focused on teenage anxiety.” – Hayley (Backpacking Bookworm), Goodreads


Release date: December 4th, 2018

I haven’t left my house in over a year. My doctor says it’s social anxiety, but I know the only things that are safe are made of paper. My room is paper. My world is paper. Everything outside is fire. All it would take is one spark for me to burst into flames. So I stay inside. Where nothing can touch me.

Then my mom hires a tutor. Jackson. This boy I had a crush on before the world became too terrifying to live in. Jackson’s life is the complete opposite of mine, and I can tell he’s got secrets of his own. But he makes me feel things. Makes me want to try again. Makes me want to be brave. I can almost taste the outside world. But so many things could go wrong, and all it takes is one spark for everything I love to disappear...
“…this book is amazing, and I believe Cindy R. Wilson did an excellent job telling this story.” – Heather, Goodreads

BlackKNIGHT: That wasn’t your best move.
Rogue2015: You won’t be saying that when it’s checkmate.
BlackKNIGHT: So…Rogue? Is that an X-men reference?
Rogue2015: You’re stalling. It’s your move.
BlackKNIGHT: You like comics, don’t you?
Rogue2015: Your turn.
BlackKNIGHT: Don’t you?
Rogue2015: Yes.
BlackKNIGHT: Comic lover and chess player. Cool. What other awesome things were you born to be?
Rogue2015: I was born to be a lot of things.
BlackKNIGHT: Like what?
Rogue2015: Maybe I didn’t phrase that right. I meant I was born to be a person who does a lot of things.
BlackKNIGHT: Sounds like you already do.
Rogue2015: I wish that were real life. In real life…I’m scared of almost everything. The computer is safe. Chess is safe. The real world? Not so much.
BlackKNIGHT: I get that. You can be yourself when you’re anonymous, but in real life you have to answer to who you really are. And sometimes, that’s the scariest thing of all.
Rogue2015: Exactly. Now, it’s your turn.
