Flash Burnout by L.K. Madigan

Flash Burnout by L.K. Madigan
329 pages
Gateway Nominee

I really enjoyed this book. Blake, a young photography student is torn between Shannon, the girlfriend he feels he is in love with and Marissa, the best friend who needs him. His voice throughout the book is sarcastic and hilarious, even when his jokes fall short of his mark. Marissa has family troubles, with a meth addicted mother, and he chooses to help her out despite what his girlfriend might think. Adding to the story is Blake's father, who is a medical examiner (Blake chooses to eat breakfast at the counter when he finds a head saw on the table) and his mother, who is a hospital chaplain, and his brother who is too cool for his little brother, but of course steps up when he is needed. The story is up beat and light until the very end, but what would you expect when reading about a love triangle and methamphetamine? I would definitely recommend this one...especially to anyone interested in photography. There is a lot of impressive lingo that sounds true, if I had any idea what any of it meant.
