Read full description of the books Flash Burnout:Winner of the 2010 William C. Morris Award!
Fifteen-year-old Blake has a girlfriend and a friend who’s a girl. One of them loves him; the other one needs him.
When he snapped a picture of a street person for his photography homework, Blake never dreamed that the woman in the photo was his friend Marissa’s long-lost meth addicted mom. Blake’s participation in the ensuing drama opens up a world of trouble, both for him and for Marissa. He spends the next few months trying to reconcile the conflicting roles of Boyfriend and Friend. His experiences range from the comic (surviving his dad’s birth control talk) to the tragic (a harrowing after-hours visit to the morgue).
In a tangle of life and death, love and loyalty, Blake will emerge with a more sharply defined snapshot of himself.
Read information about the authorLisa Wolfson (also known as L.K. Madigan) was born in Portland, Oregon, but when she was ten years old, her parents moved to Los Angeles. They were pretty insistent that she accompany them. She spent the rest of her formative years in L.A. (the Valley, to be exact … a region made famous in both song and film). When she was 28, she decided that she didn’t want to spend the rest of her life in L.A., even though she had a cool job working at Warner Bros. Records. Her husband and her decided to relocate to her hometown. Living in Portland and L.A. made her the kind of person who was equally at home sitting in traffic jams or walking in the rain.
FLASH BURNOUT was published in October 2009. Her second young adult novel, a paranormal story titled THE MERMAID’S MIRROR, was released in Fall 2010.
She was a 20-year breast cancer survivor. She died on February 23, 2011 from pancreatic cancer at the age of 47.
