I’ve always felt like Flash Burnout by L.K. Madigan was like a brother book to Struts & Frets. They’re both YA novels that came out the same year, both contemporary, edgy, realistic stories with male protagonists. In fact, on library recommendation lists, we were often put together when answering the question: “Hey, anyone know any good boy books?” She and I are also part of the same writer’s group, the Debs, and we had a chance to meet face-to-face last summer at ALA in DC and we had a blast.Last week, she posted an incredibly brave announcement on her blog about her current battle with pancreatic cancer. It has left those of us who know and love her in awe at her bravery, her eloquence. Our writer group sent cards, notes, and small presents, as is our wont in times of both tragedy and triumph. But we want to do more.If you’ve not read Flash Burnout or her new book The Mermaid’s Mirror, well, you’ve got some reading to do, and I envy you the first time experience. But nearly as exciting, our writer group wants to help get those books in your hands. So we’re holding an L.K. Madigan Book giveaway!Check out Cindy Pon’s post on our group blog about how to enter.
