Erin Lange: BUTTER
Erin Jade Lange is an only child, which means she spent a lot of time entertaining herself growing up. This required her to rely heavily on her own imagination, which is probably why she became a writer.
She was born and raised along the Mississippi River in northern Illinois, but she now lives in the Arizona sunshine with her boyfriend and a pug named Lucky.
She is represented by Jennifer Laughran of Andrea Brown Lit.
DEBUT: BUTTER (Bloomsbury, 2012)
A boy everyone calls “Butter” is about to make Scottsdale High history. He’s going to eat himself to death live on the Internet – and everyone will watch.
He announces his deadly plan to an army of peers and expects pity, insults or even indifference. Instead, he finds morbid encouragement. When that encouragement tips the scales into popularity, Butter has a reason to live. But if he doesn’t go through with his plan, he’ll lose everything.
