Product description


This is an incredible piece of fiction written by Nicola Morgan and for me, definitely the new read of 2010 so far.... This book feels like a stroke of genius, combining a fast-paced story with romance and danger, success and family drama alongside some seriously thought-provoking happenstance. Fantastic. * A Bookseller * Morgan has always been interested in showing how the adolescent brain works - in addition to her superb Highwayman's Footsteps novels, inspired by the famous poem, she has written two useful nonfiction books on the teenage brain - and Wasted dramatises the power of first love and how easily a young life can be derailed. It's a gripping, original and stylish read that should cheer teens up by making them sob their eyes out. -- Amanda Craig * The Times * Truly an amazing book that really makes you wonder about the little chances that life turns on. A story about love, fate and the danger of leaving things to chance. * * This is certainly the most unique, original and all round fascinating book I've read for a while. From the very first page this book really captured my attention, I just didn't want to put it down. * Rhiana-reads * An interesting intelligent novel * The Scotsman * I found it both hard to put down and impossible to finish. * Books For Keeps * Nicola Morgan's Wasted is a compelling and original novel with an ingenious narrative device at its heart. -- Chris Small * Times Educational Supplement *
