The Boy Recession by Flynn Meaney

This was a sweet high school read that will appeal to lots of different kinds of readers.

The premise is simple. During Kelly and Hunter's senior year of high school, a large number of boys transfer schools, leaving Julius High with a high girl to guy ratio. Something that I'm sure happens all the time. Suddenly the status of overlooked, geeky and nerdy boys skyrockets them to the same popularity of star quarterbacks. Flynn Meaney takes advantage of the situation, by creating lots of hilariously awkward moments between the various clicks of students, leaving no stereotype spared.

I loved the trio of friends in Kelly, Darcy, and Aviva. And then the boy group with Hunter, Derek, and Eugene was great as well. I found myself physically smiling whenever Kelly and Hunter got together. Those were definitely the best scenes in the book, the lightest moments, the most humorous parts. A cute book, with adorable characters. Recommended for summer beach reading!

Overall Rating: 4 Stars
