Released by Riverdale Avenue Books
- New York Times Best-selling Author Marc Shapiro Writes the First Book Chronicling Lindsay Lohan’s Adult Life -
Riverdale, NY- September 24, 2014 – The innovative hybrid publisher, Riverdale Avenue Book just published the first biography of Lindsay Lohan as an adult recounting her bizarre free-fall from Disney princess to America’s favorite train wreck. Lindsay Lohan: Fully Loaded: From Disney to Disaster: An Unauthorized Biography is an update on the classic Hollywood tale of talent and promise cut short by well-chronicled alcohol, drugs, promiscuity, a dysfunctional childhood, emotional issues and the willingness of a shark-like media to attack at every turn.
As told by New York Times best-selling author Marc Shapiro, Lindsay Lohan: Fully Loaded: From Disney to Disaster tells the story of a child brought up in the midst of a dysfunctional and often violent and substance-abusing family. Lindsay’s talent ultimately brought her to Hollywood where hit movies and growing celebrity had the entertainment world pegging her as the next IT girl. What followed was a steady decline as Lindsay’s inability to cope with real world realities and the fantasy of ‘Tinsel Town’ manifested itself in countless stints in rehab and run-ins with the law as she slowly, but surely, burned every emotional and professional bridge on an odyssey that currently has her making a literal last stand in London.
"Writing this book was an emotional rollercoaster. One moment I was pulling for Lindsay to fight off her demons so I could write a happy ending. The next I was totally ticked off at the forces that were letting Lindsay slide through life. To be honest, I was pulling for Lindsay to face harsh reality and maybe a stint behind bars,” said author Marc Shapiro. “Lindsay continues to skate at the largesse of enablers, dysfunctional parents and a legal system that continues to let her slide. Consequently, this is a work in progress with no end in sight.”
“Lindsay Lohan’s fall fascinates us because we all watched her grow up from The Parent Trap and her Disney films to Mean Girls, and we’ve been somewhat stunned by her decade long free-fall. We are fascinated by her life because we all want to see her overcome the odds and prove the pundits wrong, but at the same time we shake our heads and say, 'we saw it coming.’ Lindsay Lohan is the favorite train wreck of her generation and yet, we are all still rooting for her,” said Publisher Lori Perkins. “Lindsay Lohan: Fully Loaded is a page-turner even though we know what happens on every page.”
The book is available in ebook format for $9.99 and in print with photos is $16.99.
