Lane Gavigan is a transgressive fiction writer who resides in a small town of South Carolina; BURNED is her first book.
A disfigured burn survivor and a prima donna new girl walk into a bar...they are fleeing from a committed murder...
Before the chaos, there was Craig Birkin, a withdrawn burn survivor who had lost his looks, pals, and his ex-girlfriend after the accident. He dreads going back to his high school, St. Peters.
Shanelle Cox was the new girl across the street from Craig, with a juvenile past and a plan to be the “it” girl of her school.
A dinner invitation may bring them together.
A Halloween bash gone awry, a messy breakup between Shanelle and Paul, and Craig's father overdosing on cocaine...these two teens find themselves in a rut of chaos. There, they learn to stick together, having each other's backs.
Taking it too literally, Shanelle finds out a dark secret of who was behind Craig's “accident."
After a heat of the moment double murder, Shanelle and Craig find themselves on a road trip to escape their town and head to God knows where.
