The one good thing I will have to give credit for is how at some parts of the book, I was intrigued by the plot and I wanted to know what would happen.

That itself prevented me from giving this a 1-star rating. This is not a story of a complicated friendship. Which is sad because this story had all the ingredients to be a good story.

Sadly, it was not. Thanks for reading my review! View all 4 comments. The Burning Gil is a novel that never really catches fire.

Your brain lets the rest go. I am not the kind of reader who needs or relies on a story arc, but still, I wanted something more.

The coming-of-age story — two girls who grow apart and embrace their individual destinies — is not unique; what is unique is how Ms. Messud works to universalize the story and provide it with resonating truths.

Thanks to W. Norton for an early reading copy. I loooove Claire Messud's writing! This short novel is about two girls, Julia and Cassie, who have been best friends since nursery school.

As they enter their pre-teen years, the friendship becomes fractured and the girls' paths begin to diverge. The narrator, Julia, is the girl from the stable two-parent home, the good student, the cautious introvert.

Cassie is the fragile girl from the wrong side of the tracks, the girl who has a perpetual dark cloud following her every move and who seems to b I loooove Claire Messud's writing!

Cassie is the fragile girl from the wrong side of the tracks, the girl who has a perpetual dark cloud following her every move and who seems to be headed nowhere fast.

I thought the girls' tangled bond was very relatable and the writing stellar. The first three quarters of the book was mesmerizing. Then Messud started in with the "woo-woo" philosophical stuff and lost me.

I just wanted to know what happened to the girls, you know? At the end of the day, I always go for the writing over the story, so upping this 3.

Recommended for fans of Messud. View all 3 comments. Its the joy of expectations surpassed. You feel ashamed of your haughty preconceptions based on friends middling reviews and the inexplicable 3.

Somewhere around the third paragraph all your resistance is broken down and you spend the entire novel ruminating on why you have never read Claire Messud before now.

The book is in three parts, in an interview with Messud she says I think of the first as "Childhood" and the second almost as "Time Passes".

You know like the middle section of "To the Lighthouse". And the third as, if not "Adulthood" then some version of it Part One of this book has this beautiful elegiac, end of summer, end of a friendship feel to it that I haven't seen replicated so perfectly in a novel before.

I related to these two girls on so many levels even though they are about to be teenagers circa The universality of that experience of transitioning from the freedom of childhood into a menacing and dimly understood adulthood was just so beautifully handled here.

I did think early on that this book was going to go in a certain direction and I am delighted it flirted with my expectations in that regard but ultimately left things unknowable.

I agree with Hannah Pittard in her analysis that More than anything — more especially than a plot-driven novel — The Burning Girl strikes me as a highly refined rumination on girlhood And therein might lie some of the disappointment with this book for some readers, who might be led to expect more of a girl goes missing type drama.

My only reasoning for not giving this the full 5-stars as I intended to do for most of the novel, was for some awkwardness in the story towards the end.

The third-hand telling of Cassie's story Cassie told Peter, who told it to Julia who tells it to us is laborious to read and I did keep thinking how do we know all this is true?

It is quite illuminating to read various interviews with Claire Messud as she talks about gender-specific anxiety and I was impressed with how she managed to convey this in subtle and real ways in this novel without resorting to the acts of violence themselves.

The menace is eluded to and it's up to the reader to decide how real it is. Which makes this book for me one to ponder over and eventually come back to for a reread.

This section is a fantastic example of some on point observations by Messud. Sometimes I felt that growing up and being a girl was about learning to be afraid.

Not paranoid, exactly, but always alert and aware, like checking out the exits in the movie theater or the fire escapes in a hotel. So you learn, in your mind, that your body needs to be protected.

Julie narrates this story, letting you, the reader, know that what she is telling you is a terrible secret. She is desperate to help Cassie even as she pulls away from her, but in trying to save her she may betray her in the most intim The best book I've read in so far.

She is desperate to help Cassie even as she pulls away from her, but in trying to save her she may betray her in the most intimate way possible.

I really anticipated this new novel by Claire Messed. Her last book, 'The Woman Upstairs', was an inimitable character study of two female artists and a horrific act of betrayal.

I have found her to be a writer of substance and perspicacity. However, this book didn't live up to my expectations.

Cassie and Julia meet when they are in pre-school and remain very close until junior high, at which time their paths diverge.

The novel explores their friendship, especially the very close connection that I really anticipated this new novel by Claire Messed.

The novel explores their friendship, especially the very close connection that Julia feels to Cassie. They come from different backgrounds and their family values are not always congruent.

The book follows their games, imaginative play and Julia's grief as Cassie begins to drift away from her.

What bothered me most was that so many things were hinted at but there was no closure. The novel explores a certain darkness and intensity in Cassie's life, especially her lifelong desire to find out who her father was and her tendency towards risky behaviors.

However, the book just drifts along and as I waited for something to unfold that would grab me, I kept waiting. There are no epiphanies and there are no sharp turns.

It felt more like a writing exercise than a novel. Set in a quiet town north of Boston, The Burning Girl is a bittersweet story of transition from childhood to adolesence.

Actually it's not unusual to get a whole bunch of new friends in high school I did. Still, I found this such a moving story of a friendship seen from the POV of the on Set in a quiet town north of Boston, The Burning Girl is a bittersweet story of transition from childhood to adolesence.

Still, I found this such a moving story of a friendship seen from the POV of the one who gets dumped.

The earlier scenes of the friendship, especially the discovery of the abandoned asylum which becomes the girls' imaginary castle, were so affecting.

The section in which Cassie takes off for Maine in search of her father was heart wrenching. Tho' the bitter outweighed the sweet in this story, I'm consoled by the thought that it ends with Julia but This book is a little too slight for the whole five stars, but what's there is so poignant.

View all 9 comments. People are quick to tell you all about the shock felt when life decides to change in the blink of an eye but fail to mention the burning sting of what the hell happened when you finally realize that life has been running a long con on you the whole damn time.

This is the story of two girls that have a friendship that can rival any other. We are brought into the story by Miss Julia who introduces us to her friend Cassie by telling us about the best last summer that ever was as each summer always is when you are young and living in the moment.

All seems well until one minor shock reshapes a summer and opens the door to so much more. I enjoyed the hell out of this book because of what it stirred up in my own personal memories.

If I knew then what I know now I would have held tight to those fleeting moments that unfairly felt like I had an eternity to enjoy. The Burning Girl is a beautifully written and really engaging coming of age tale, following the ups and downs of the friendship between Julia and Cassie — once inseparable, then peripheral, it is a story of growing up and growing apart.

But sometimes nurture tells, Cassie has a very different home and family life The Burning Girl is a beautifully written and really engaging coming of age tale, following the ups and downs of the friendship between Julia and Cassie — once inseparable, then peripheral, it is a story of growing up and growing apart.

But sometimes nurture tells, Cassie has a very different home and family life to Julia, as they reach high school and beyond it becomes apparent that both are faced with very different choices.

I loved this story — I was rooting for both Julia and Cassie — and Claire Messud brought them both to vivid life on the page even though we were seeing through one filtered eye.

The friendship between them dies slowly and there is no one point that you can say there, its done.

The descriptive prose is hugely immersive, the community in which they live, the people around them, all the little ups and downs that affect how they are, all come into play and this is somewhat of a page turner.

Mostly I found it to be hugely insightful. It got me thinking back to those friends I remember from my young years who have fallen by the wayside with no great fanfare.

There one day, gone the next, you may never know how their lives play out. The feelings that Julia has about her friendship with Cassie hits home on more than one level and whilst Claire Messud uses a slightly more dramatic set of events than might be usual to show this dying friendship, it is authentically believable.

By the end of The Burning Girl I was slightly melancholy, inclined to think about my own coming of age and where it lead me, this is thought provoking and very very real.

Definitely recommended. This was really quite an exceptional read for me, although it has met some notably mixed reviews.

The takeaway point is, this is not a novel for everyone- especially not if you enjoy plot-driven narratives. Messud's novel is thematically coherent and effectively structured.

In the words of Messud's narrator Julia this novel is about "what it means to be a girl growing up. The transition depicted is an introspective and messy one, but elements of it remain recognisable to us all.

Messud's writing is stark and measured, at times elegiac. In the end, I found it quite hard to fault this- my greatest complaint was the lapse in tone in the early section of part In the end Messud's meditation on girlhood and growing up really nailed it for me.

Oh, so very disappointed in this book. I loved Messud's last novel and I think she is a great writer.

But this book missed the mark. It's about the friendship between two girls that eventually falls apart but it feels familiar.

Better than, say, Girls on Fire, but not at all as good as Ferrante. The Burning Girl felt a little thin, with not much payoff. Messud pushed hard on the theme of stories we tell ourselves but it didn't quite mesh.

There is also a very forced plot device the asylum caret Oh, so very disappointed in this book. There is also a very forced plot device the asylum caretaker for those who have read it and some backstory that goes no where.

Surprising that this novel wasn't better but I hope Messud comes roaring back with a next book. Disappointingly, I found The Burning Girl rather a non-event which never came close to the searing coming of age story that I was expecting and for much of the novel I was waiting for something dramatic to occur.

However in all other ways, both physically, behaviourally and in terms of background, they are diametrically opposed.

Meanwhile Cassie is a rule-breaker, with an unreliable mother, no idea of her father's identity, muddles along at school and will try anything once.

When their paths start to diverge in seventh grade it feels like a routine fact of life as an individual begins to gain a sense of their identity and different attitudes and values start to emerge.

After a summer of seeming umbilically linked - from roaming in the woods, exploring the quarry, volunteering at an animal shelter and culminating in play acting in an former asylum - the increasing distance between the two is a devastating blow for Julia.

Part One focuses on that summer and reading between the lines it seems that Julia values the friendship more than Cassie, who decides upon their adventures and seems to take the lead in making decisions.

It is this summer that Cassie first encounters Dr Anders Shute, the ER doctor with a distinct lack of bedside manner and Messud emphasises this incipient meeting, hence it is no surprise when he appears further on in the story.

Whilst the novel is simply a rather ordinary tale of two young girls growing apart, much of the narrative from Julia sixteen-years-old seems rather overblown.

Whilst the reader becomes aware that Cassie is one of those girls who knows exactly how to play allies off against one another and manipulate Julia, she never seems to learn this lesson.

At this point Cassie invests everything in the imaginary father who she sees as her salvation. Aside from the unwarranted emotional angst for what is effectively a standard experience for every child during the awkward school years, the astute psychological insights on friendships, the vulnerabilities of females and the masks and disguises that an individual shows the world make The Burning Girl a thoroughly worthwhile read.

Not paranoid, exactly, but always alert and aware, like checking out the exits in the movie theatre or the fire escape in a hotel. You came to know, in a way you hadn't as a kid, that the body you inhabited was vulnerable, imperfectly fortified.

With thanks to reviewer, Miriam Smith, for sharing this book. This was a sad book. They're the subject of choice these days.

But The Burning Girl really is about girls - particularly the friendship between girls, and how utterly complex it can be. As close as sisters, as vicious as enemies, the friendships between girls can be stormy and intense, fulfilling and thrilling.

Cassie is a girl on fire, with a rough home life and a deep de Girls. Cassie is a girl on fire, with a rough home life and a deep desperation to be loved.

Julia, her best friend, is what you'd call a normal girl, with a fiery feminist mother and laid-back father, and an average, loving home. Julia has direction - she speaks clearly of the expectations placed upon her, that she'll go to university and do well for herself.

But Cassie has no such expectations - nobody expects her to amount to anything. And nobody is surprised when she apparently goes off the rails, screaming for attention.

Or was she? I was Cassie, once upon a time, but now I'm Julia and her mum! The storyline isn't new, nor is it surprising, especially not to any female readers.

But it is fresh, insightful, glorious. Messud is an incredible writer. The Burning Girl is wonderful and triumphant, and will be read in one sitting.

Then, last week, along came her new one, The Burning Girl. Since it was well-reviewed, I gave it a shot.

The promotional material alluded to the bond of best friends, two girls who clicked in nursery Up front, please know that I did not care for Ms.

The promotional material alluded to the bond of best friends, two girls who clicked in nursery school and shared everything until adolescence tore them apart.

But I ran into trouble right at the start, because I never quite understood the connection between these two girls. I get that they were opposites — good girl versus bad girl, conservative girl versus daring girl, yin and yang perhaps.

But I never bought into their attraction to each other. Their drifting apart in adolescence made far more sense to me than their attraction. Oh, there were nice moments, like when the author described another girl in their class, an evil one, as looking out of the corner of her eye like Sophia Vergara watching in a show that only she could see.

But moments here and there were all I got here. As a chronicle of the agony of growing up, there was nothing new. Lots of other writers have done the same in a manner every bit as skilled.

Yes, Ms. But brilliant? I felt particularly let down by the ending. Worst, I felt that the author spent the last pages trying to add meaning to something whose meaning was negligible.

As with Tom Perrotta in Mrs. Fletcher, an author this highly acclaimed suffers from inflated expectations. Perhaps without the hype, I might have liked this book more.

Highly readable, The Burning Girl revolved around an adolescent friendship. The fierce intensity and the often transitory nature of such attachments were portrayed in a compelling manner.

Key to the plot development was the premise that we tell ourselves lies to justify our actions. Julia and Cassie have been friends since nursery school through the onset of adolescence, despite the contrast in their backgrounds.

Then forks in the road appear and different choices are made. As Julia, the narrator, becomes aware of the current trend, various emotions naturally surface: among them regret, nostalgia, hurt, and disappointment.

We all have memories of the friendships of youth. Claire Messud writes well in an understated way, such that I found myself immediately drawn in, yet somehow unaware that I was in such good hands!

Hers is a quiet skill. It's unfortunate the story took a turn I didn't care for. Although I have to quibble that the girls seemed to be more like high schoolers than middle schoolers.

Please don't tell me drugs and alcohol are present at parties with 12 year olds!! I would give my eyeteeth to be able to write like Claire Messud.

Every word of this book was perfect. Jun 03, Ellie rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , indch. Julia and Cassie have been friends since preschool but now they've entered the treacherous waters of middle school.

The former "secret sisters" are going different ways: Julia is an honors student and Cassie As Cassie heads in a dangerous direction, Julia tries to help but no longer understands what their relationship is.

Or if they even have one. I loved Messud's last book, The Woman Upstairs, which I found a powerful story of women and art and the relationships between the women as Julia and Cassie have been friends since preschool but now they've entered the treacherous waters of middle school.

I loved Messud's last book, The Woman Upstairs, which I found a powerful story of women and art and the relationships between the women as people and as artists.

The Burning Girl feels less compelling to me but still an engrossing read as Messud continues to explore female relationships, this time in adolescence.

Although much of the story felt predictable, I was still drawn into the lives of these characters and came to care about them, their relationship, their lives.

Told in the first person from Julia's point of view, Cassie remains somewhat mysterious which is, I think, as it should be.

Adolescence is a mysterious time, particularly to those going through it. Julia's life is more stable and comfortable and her struggles less interesting than Cassie's, who is beautiful and tortured.

I enjoyed this book and recommend it for those looking for a story built around characters, their experiences and relationships.

In a nutshell, this novel is about a coming of age story about two former best friends. The story follows Julia and Cassie as they matriculate through nursery all the way to high school.

It shows the dynamics of growing up and growing apart. The writing for me was great. To get through a book, the writing has to be on point and that it was for me.

The plot was good, but not great which was why I gave it 3 stars. I felt a disconnect. The characters were complex and conflicted.

Particularly, Cas In a nutshell, this novel is about a coming of age story about two former best friends.

Particularly, Cassie. Cassie had major issues that stemmed from her family or lack there of. I would have loved to read the point of view of Cassie.

Instead, us readers get it from Julia's perspective. If it would've been first person maybe it would've been more of a powerful read. The concept did resonate with me being a female and going through friendships but it fell a little flat for me after I finished.

Loved this coming-of-age novel that so beautifully portrays the intense relationship between adolescent girls--how important the friendship is quasi first love and how it changes as the girls themselves mature and change.

It is normal to have mixed reactions with a book but I am totally confused with The Burning Girl. I actually liked the book.

The plot's an average coming of age tale channeled through the friendship of two girls. I didn't mind that though as Messud has a crystalline writing style and she managed to develop the girl's friendship and give it depth.

The conclusion is good too. It's predictable but when well done I don't really mind. My main problem with the book is that it lacked a soul.

Burning Girl is too well structured as a novel. In one sense you can say it's perfect but I found it difficult to engage myself with the plot or characters.

In the end I felt like I read a generic YA novel. This was a pleasant read but nothing else. This is my first Claire messud.

The story seemed believable, if not a bit generic, and the prose elegant. However, messud tended to write out explicitly her otherwise deep take-home messages, rather than leaving readers more room to ponder and debate.
