The Boy Recession

The Boy Recession - Flynn Meaney OVERALL IMPRESSION: I don't like to read book synopses as I don't want to be spoiled on anything, so I didn't know what this was about when I bought it. I was hoping this was going to have more of a sci-fi spin on it where the boys were actually disappearing, not just moving out of town.

I think a 7th or 8th grader might enjoy this story, but it wasn't for me. It did get better as it went on, but I'm still not that impressed with it. It wasn't terrible, it just wasn't memorable and it's one of those books that I'll probably never pick up again.

CHARACTERS: I liked both of the main characters, Hunter and Kelly. They were cute together and I enjoyed watching the progression of their relationship.

COVER: I adore the cover, and it's honestly a big reason that I picked this book up in the first place. I love the color scheme and the little boy and girl figures on it.
