    Find out more about Bloodthirsty and Flynn Meaney

    Bloodthirsty is a hilariously funny book of one pale dude’s journey through the ups and downs of high school, and Flynn Meaney has spared not one agonizing scene. One, or all of us, has experienced at least one of the excruciating issues that Meaney depicts. And that is what makes Bloodthirsty so hysterically funny. It’s honest, and believable.

    With a neurotic and germaphobe mom, an equally strange dad, and a brother whose popularity surpasses his own, is it any wonder that Finbar Frame is well…very much a wallflower? Despite his incredible spooky eyes, Finn has enjoyed none of the popularity his jock brother has experienced, hasn’t had his first kiss, and virtually has no friends. In fact, Finn is very much the opposite of his brother.

    Until the Frame family moves from Podunk, Indiana to New York and then the metamorphosis begins…

    Riding the wave of popularity of a recent vampire novel, Finn realizes he has all the characteristics of the most popular vampire heart-throbs. And he even has a built-in allergy to sun. Deciding that this could work for him, dropping a few hints here and there, soon those in the “know” at Pelham Public think Finn is a vampire. And he works it.

    But the realization that his brother Luke might not be as perfect as he appears to be, throws Finn for a loop. Luke’s grades begin to drop and his moodiness soars to new heights. It seems for the unlikely twins, that when one is up, the other is down. When Finn’s popularity soars at Pelham complete with vampire groupies, Finn reflects that popularity might not be all that its chalked up to be. Especially when Kate Gallatin swoops in and seems to like Finn…just as he is.

    Bloodthirsty is a humorous mix of Bridget Jones meets Twilight, and reminds one of a teen version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid as well. You can’t but help root for Finn. If you are into lighthearted fare, with a plenty of chuckles then Bloodthirsty is your bag, baby!
