Who would play the characters if a movie was made of Into the fire?
If Into the Fire was made into a movie, I’d probably be so excited that I wouldn’t care who they cast, but here’s what my dream cast would look like.
Cara Tillman: Dove Cameron
Cara is the main character and she’s a phoenix—or she’ll be a full-fledged phoenix in one month when she goes through her rebirth. She has blonde hair with fiery red streaks. She’s emotional, loves the water, and drinks her tea in the least amount of sips as possible. I think Dove Cameron is capable of playing just about any character and I could definitely see her portraying the many sides of Cara.
Logan Schmidt: Spencer Boldman
Logan comes across as a tough New Yorker, but he has a soft side. He’s always wearing the leather jacket his mother gave him before she died, and he has a soft spot for Cara. He’s a bit of a player and is at odds with how much moving to Ashlan Falls is changing him. Thanks to my daughter making me watch TV shows with her, I’ve seen Spencer Boldman in both TV series and movies. He looks the part of Logan and can definitely portray that attitude Logan comes to Ashlan Falls with.
Rachel (Cara’s best friend): Maia Mitchell
Let me just say how much I love Rachel. She’s the best friend who has your back and isn’t afraid to confront your new love interest and threaten his man parts. Maia Mitchell strikes me as that girl so I think she’d make a great Rachel.
While there are a lot of other characters in Into the Fire, I never like to envision my entire dream cast. I’ll just cross my fingers that the book gets made into a movie and see who gets picked for each role. ;)

Title: Into the Fire
Publication date: September 9, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Ashelyn Drake
Seventeen-year-old Cara Tillman’s life is a perfectly normal one until Logan Schmidt moves to Ashlan Falls. Cara is inexplicably drawn to him, but she’s not exactly complaining. Logan’s like no boy she’s ever met, and he brings out a side of Cara that she isn’t used to. As the two get closer, everything is nearly perfect, and Cara looks forward to the future.
But Cara isn’t a normal girl. She’s a member of a small group of people descended from the mythical phoenix bird, and her time is running out. Rebirth is nearing, which means she’ll forget her life up to this point—she’ll forget Logan and everything they mean to one another.. But that may be the least of Cara’s problems.
A phoenix hunter is on the loose, and he’s determined to put an end to the lives of people like Cara and her family, once and for all.
