"Julie has an obsession with fire that began after her parents died when she was twelve years old. Her pyromania leads her to take an unlikely job as a forest firefighter on an elite, Type 1 "Hotshot" crew of forest firefighters who travel the American West battling wildfires. The only woman on the twenty-person crew, Julie struggles both to prove her worth and find a place of belonging in the dangerous, insular, and very masculine world of fire. Julie not only battles fires, but also deep secrets she's been harboring since she became an orphan. As her season "on the line" progresses so do her relationships with the strange and varied cast of characters that make up her hotshots team--Archie, Tan, Rock Star, Hawg, Lance, and Sam. And ultimately, Julie learns what it truly means to put your life on the line for someone else"--Page [4] of cover.

After a devastating loss, the protagonist's variably rocky life was in a fair part self-inflicted. Normally, such characters annoy or at least bore me. However, Lowry handled it quite well. The ending was odd, bittersweet, not quite totally satisfying. Nevertheless, the setting - a traditionally male sphere - and the protagonist's journey into it were intriguing. Wildfire was a lovely read. Recommended.
