Signed Book Sunday: The Boy Recession by Flynn Meaney


JBN Signed Book Sunday

Signed Book Sunday is Meme run by JeanBookNerd.

What is SIGNED BOOK SUNDAY?

We are all in this community because of our common interest in reading. The books and stories have become somewhat a piece of us. Whether it be the meaning behind the stories or it has become associated to a period of a time in our lives, books have become more than just entertainment for our imagination.

Books are our gems and they become more of a treasure when they are signed by the author. Now that book has become more personal. It provides valued stories as to when the author signed it and the conversation that was engaged during the signing. These moments are unique and were only experienced by you. Having our favorite books signed is a testament to our love for reading.

Signed Book Sunday will be an outlet for us to showcase books that we have collected over the years with that once special scribble claiming that it was touched by the author. Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun. 

Show your signed books to others and see what others have collected through the years.

The population of Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, is shrinking as families move to cities and towns with greener pastures, and the local high school is hurting: nearly all of the area's most eligible guys have moved or transferred schools.

With little competition, the remaining boys find their stocks on the rise, and even the most unlikely candidates have a good chance at making the team and getting the girl. Guitar-strumming slacker HUNTER FAHRENBACH has made an art of blending into the background, but now desperate coaches are recruiting him and popular girls are noticing his scruffy good looks. With a little help, Hunter might even by boyfriend material...

Down-to-earth KELLY ROBBINS has a simple wish for her junior year: "one normal, nice boy to crush on." Kelly and Hunter have always been friends, but is there something more to their platonic relationship? And can Kelly overcome the odds? After all, dating is hard enough without a four-to-one ratio.



Praise for THE BOY RECESSION

"In this sassy and very funny he said/she said romantic comedy from Meaney (Bloodthirsty), Kelly and Hunter's small Wisconsin high school suffers an exodus of dudes. . . the fun of the story lies less in the question of "Will they or won't they?" than in the large supporting case of offbeat friends. . . rarely has a recession brought such enjoyment." ―Publishers Weekly

"Meaney's The Boy Recession is downright hilarious... smooth, witty, and charming. The Boy Recession is bound to please across the board." ―VOYA

"The dialogue is witty and crisp, capturing the rhythms of teen conversations." ―Kirkus

"Meany's laugh-out-loud dialogue and vulnerable protagonists-they split first-person narration duties-assure this charming crowd-pleaser a varied audience." ―Booklist

"Breezy, fast-paced accounts incorporate humorous situations and witty comments." ―SLJ

Praise for BLOODTHIRSTY

"Bloodthirsty sparkles with wit and charm." ―Daniel Waters, author of Generation Dead

"A story so funny and clever I wish I had thought of it myself." ―Jake Wizner, author of Spanking Shakespeare and Castration Celebration

Flynn Meaney grew up in Mamaroneck, New York, ten minutes away from Pelham, home to the fictional Finbar Frame. She graduated from Rye Neck High School, where she participated in every nerdy activity imaginable, including Mock Trial, Academic Challenge, literary magazine and the school band. Flynn's hilarious high school friends and their conversations preserved in letters, emails, and notes passed in class have provided endless inspiration for her YA writing.
Flynn went on to study Marketing and French at the University of Notre Dame, where she spent many Saturdays standing on bleachers in the freezing cold cheering on a losing football team (Go Irish!) and also took her first creative writing workshop courses. She studied abroad in Paris and also at University College Dublin.

After graduating from Notre Dame in 2009 with President Obama as her commencement speaker (and successfully sneaking snacks past the Secret Service under her graduation robe), Flynn moved back to New York to study poetry at Hunter College and hang out with her vampire-obsessed friend Lucila, whose comment "Now that vampires are so hot, we can stop tanning" planted the first seeds of the idea for Bloodthirsty.

In 2012, Flynn finished her degree at Hunter College and her second YA novel, The Boy Recession. Now she is on the lookout for inspiration for her third book!
