Sixteen-year-old Finbar Frame seriously missed out in the gene-pool stakes as his twin brother, Luke, got the good looks, athletic ability and pigmentation. Finbar is tall, skinny, pale and pretty much allergic to the sun - and sadly, teenage girls don't appreciate Finbar's sensitive skin or his sensitive soul.
But when a move to a new school converges with a cultural trend romanticising vampires, Finbar seizes the opportunity. He'll become a vampire! Or at least fake it ... to get a date.
About the Author
Flynn Meaney is a published poet and writer, and an alumna of the University of Notre Dame. She was a finalist for the Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship and her young adult novella, Bennett Riley, appeared in Cicada Magazine in September 2007. She was a semi-finalist in Amazon's 2009 Breakthrough Novel Contest with Mouthing the Almer Mater. Flynn says she was inspired to write Bloodthirsty by a broad love of pop culture vampires, especially HBO's True Blood, but the final catalyst was a comment from a friend, "Now that vampires are so hot, we can stop tanning."
