About the Author

When she was 17, Laurie Boyle Crompton painted her first car hot pink using 40 cans of spray paint. This turned her into an overnight icon in Butler, PA. She now lives near NYC in Queens, but maintains a secret identity in New Paltz, NY where she and her family can often be found tromping through the forest. Visit www.lboylecrompton.com


"Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) made me laugh...and cringe...and laugh again. Laurie Boyle Crompton's blend of snark and heart will keep you turning the pages." -- Mandy Hubbard autho of Prada and Prejudice

"Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) is at turns funny, cringe-worthy and heartbreaking . . . Don't miss out." -- RT Book Reviews

"Crompton explores popular territory--bullying, finding oneself, and overcoming mistakes--and her title will help fill the dire need for books about girls whose interests transcend gender stereotypes" -- Booklist

"Effective portrayal of Blaze as a girl who is more than merely the sum of her problems and bad decisions . . . Readers trying to balance life's responsibilities with a desire for independence or those struggling to navigate teen life online will likely find a kindred spirit in Blaze, while comic-book fans might enjoy seeing the art form infuse a non-graphic narrative." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"First-time novelist Crompton handily establishes Blaze as a diehard comics fan who's not entirely comfortable in her own skin; her funny-crass interactions with her friends and her younger brother make for entertaining reading . . .the novel forces readers to reconsider the way they treat their peers, especially girls, over their sexual behavior, real or imagined." -- Publishers Weekly

"Hilarious and heartfelt! Blaze is a hero for the modern age!" -- Jennifer Ziegler, author of How to NOT be Popular

"If I had to describe Blaze, the book, in one or two words, I would simply say GIRL POWER!" -- Read for Your Future

"One of the most relatable anti-love stories we've come across in a while. Plus, the comic book drawings inside are awesome!" -- Seventeen.com
