One of the Survivors by Susan Shaw
Joey and his friend Maureen are the only two survivors after a fire at school killed everyone else in their classroom. Even though they are lucky to be alive they are haunted by their luck as well as by the fact that everyone believes they are somehow guilty of causing the fire in the first place. Joey has started keeping a journal to try to deal with his fear and other feelings while he works out how he can possibly face returning to school in the fall.
