About the Author

Nicola Morgan is the author of many critically acclaimed titles for older children and young adults, including Chicken Friend, The Highwayman's Footsteps, The Highwayman's Curse, Mondays Are Red, The Passionflower Massacre, Know Your Brain, The Leaving Home Survival Guide and most recently, Deathwatch. Her novels Fleshmarket and Sleepwalking both won Scottish Art Council prizes, the latter winning the Scottish Children's Book of the Year, and her non-fiction title Blame My Brain was shortlisted for the prestigious Aventis Prize. Nicola lives in Edinburgh.


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 *
