Overview

Bloodthirsty by Flynn Meaney

Some vampires are good. Some are evil. Some are faking it to get girls.

Awkward and allergic to the sun, sixteen-year-old Finbar Frame never gets the girl. But when he notices that all the female students at his school are obsessed with a vampire romance novel called Bloodthirsty, Finbar decides to boldly go where no sane guy has gone before-he becomes a vampire, minus the whole blood sucking part.

With his brooding nature and weirdly pale skin, it's surprisingly easy for Finbar to pretend to be paranormal. But, when he meets the one girl who just might like him for who he really is, he discovers that his life as a pseudo-vampire is more complicated than he expected.

This hilarious debut novel is for anyone who believes that sometimes even nice guys-without sharp teeth or sparkly skin— can get the girl.

About the Author

Flynn Meaney lives in Mamaroneck, New York. She is an alumna of the University of Notre Dame and is currently a poetry student in the Hunter College MFA Creative Writing program. Bloodthirsty emerged out of Flynn's broad love of pop culture vampires and her friend Lucila's comment: "Now that vampires are so hot, we can stop tanning." Lucila's observation made Flynn think about how the paranormal craze would benefit the pale and thin teens who would have suffered during the Baywatch years.

Flynn is currently working on her second novel, coming Fall 2011.

I would not read it again but it gave me a lots of laughs but other times i was just weired out. I love vampires and was hoping for a good book. But really it was bout sex and thus guy trying to become a vimpire so he could have the laides....dumb.

i <3333 this book. The author really had time to write this book. Its 161 pages but a great read, all the characters she made to have personality, si they won't be easily forgotten. I wish she switctched one of her characters names. Either Kate or Kayla. I kept getting confused but other than that its a good read.

It was good. I like how its different from other books and how there are lil hidden jokes in it. However the ending frustrates me. Finbar sir you chose the wrong girl.

The verdict? I liked it! I really enjoyed the tone of the blurbage on the back of the book and the ironic, laid-back feel that was whitty and fun. The book itself ended up being very different from expected - but in an even better way. The story is told in the first-person (which I normally hate but for once was used to perfection here), by Finbar, but in a very snarky way that is just hilarious. The story begins in the midst of his &quot;vampire&quot; days but he quickly rewinds and explains everything about himself and how he gradually found himself in such a position. Finbar is instantly likable as a teenager who feels like the odd one out - at home, at school. (Who hasn't been there, right?) But he is able to laugh at himself and the situations he finds himself in, some of which are cringe-worthy but end up being so funny, too. His fraternal twin is the quintessential jock, his mother a devout Catholic clean-freak, and his father an x-hockey player, electronic salesman. Finbar finds himself in the unique position of being able to reinvent himself when his family moves from Indiana to New York. Pale skin courtesy of a sun allergy, combined with his social awkwardness (hence aloofness) leads to a mistaken identity as a vampire. And when Fin realizes he can use this to his advantage, he sets about perfecting his vampire attitude and in the process becomes a confident, caring young man. The premise is utterly ridiculous but written in such a way that it is fairly believable and so funny. There's a bit of language in the book, probably fairly tame compared to what teens say in real life, but some of the name-calling by bullies was too much. I felt like the author (who is a woman) tried a little too hard sometimes to stress that Fin was, most definitely, a teenage boy - I could have done with a bit less emphasis on boobs, hot librarians, etc. There is some bullying and Finbar learns to stand up for himself (and others) but there's very little consequence to the bullies. Teenage drinking (and drugs) is also taken as a matter of course, though a twist at the end reveals the possible flip-side to placing too much stock in peer pressure and popularity. Any lessons are implied, with no exposition to what is right or wrong, rather than clearly explained. And sadly, all the adults are fairly clueless - to everything. While a good story, I don't think I'd recommend it to middle-grade readers.
