Fire We Make

A Multicultural Romance Novel by Alex Benkast

“True friendship resists time, distance, and silence.” —Isabel Allende

Sometimes the craziest ideas had the greatest payoff. Or at least that’s what Ana told herself as she marched down the hallway to kiss the boy who should’ve been the last person she’d ever want to be her first kiss. One kiss that changes the course of their lives forever.


This story starts in the past and moves into the present. Even though Fire We Make takes place a decade after my debut novel Lumiana (Ana is a main character in Book 1 & 2 of my Rebels Like Us family saga, and Jamie makes his debut in Book 2) this novel can be read as a standalone.
