Nothing Left to Burn by Heather Ezell
Between the almost-out-of-control California wildfires and the steamy scenes between Audrey and her boyfriend, Brooks, Nothing Left to Burn will probably leave you feeling like there is, in fact, nothing left to burn. It's told in two timelines — the first as Audrey is preparing to evacuate her affluent neighborhood due to the Orange County fires and the second, months earlier, at the start of her romance with Brooks. Even as the relationship between Audrey and Brooks becomes uneasy and the reader comes to fear his secrets, Ezell is busy exploring the topics of sexual pressure and consent. The pressure to be ready for sex placed on teens by culture, their friends, and by prospective partners is all discussed here, but it's done in a way that allows Audrey to remain sex positive throughout. I especially liked that Audrey talked about sex with her parents on the page of the book.
