because there was fire by Jamie Hornsby

On a warm summer night two teens disappear from a neighbourhood barbecue, vanishing without a trace.

There's Clara, seventeen, fed up with her suburb and everyone in it. Everyone except Andrew, the newly arrived rich kid from the right side of the tracks. Sparks fly and they jump in his Monaro and hit the road, yearning for a life of adventure. But they soon learn that escape isn't that easy, and fires can burn beyond control.

Written by Jamie Hornsby, one of South Australia's most exciting new writers, because there was fire is a darkly-comic coming of age story set against the backdrop of the burning Australian bush.
