Moore, Lisa Lynne
Flannery Malone is a girl with a lot of problems. Her best friend is drifting away, her mom is a bit of a flake, and word’s getting around school that she’s “welfare.” On the bright side, she’s been assigned to a group project with the unrequited love of her life, Tyrone O’Rourke … if only she could get his attention. Newfoundland author Lisa Moore is known for writing award-winning adult fiction, so I was surprised to hear she would be releasing a YA novel. She’s still dealing with serious subject matter here, but ‘Flannery’ also happens to be a sweet, funny story about first love, family, and growing up.
