Description-

  • A spellbinding story about chasing love, fighting family, losing friends and starting all over again, from the internationally acclaimed Lisa Moore.

    Sixteen-year-old Flannery Malone has it bad. She's been in love with Tyrone O'Rourke since the days she still believed in Santa Claus. But Tyrone has grown from a dorky kid into an outlaw graffiti artist, the rebel-with-a-cause of Flannery's dreams, literally too cool for school.

    Which is a problem, since he and Flannery are partners for the entrepreneurship class that she needs to graduate. And Tyrone's vanishing act may have darker causes than she realizes.

    Tyrone isn't Flannery's only problem. Her mother, Miranda, can't pay the heating bills, let alone buy Flannery's biology book. Her little brother, Felix, is careening out of control. And her best-friend-since-forever, Amber, has fallen for a guy who is making her forget all about the things she's always cared most about — Flannery included — leading Amber down a dark and dangerous path of her own.

    When Flannery decides to make a love potion for her entrepreneurship project, rumors that it actually works go viral, and she suddenly has a hot commodity on her hands. But a series of shattering events makes her realize that real-life love is far more potent — and potentially damaging — than any fairy-tale prescription.

    Written in Lisa Moore's exuberant and inimitable style, Flannery is by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, empowering and harrowing — often all on the same page. It is a novel whose spell no reader will be able to resist.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    March 21, 2016
    Nothing comes easily for Flannery. Her single mother is trying to raise the 16-year-old and her thoughtful-yet-infuriating younger brother, Felix, without enough money to buy school supplies or keep the electricity on. At school, Flannery is mooning over her childhood pal, Tyrone, and chasing down her best friend, Amber, who has ditched her for a controlling boyfriend. Flannery’s story unfurls almost as a stream of consciousness narrative, with passages frequently interrupted by and interspersed with frenetic memories. In her first book for teens, Moore (author of February, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2010) forsakes quotation marks to denote dialogue, creating the sense that Flannery is remembering and retelling her story at a distance. This does not lessen the story’s impact as Moore clearly articulates the “profoundly unfair” struggle of the invisible poor, the impossible weight of a child trying to keep a family together, and the brutal torments of high school, including one especially horrific bullying scene involving a used condom. But Flannery remains precocious and independent, a pragmatic heroine with a fierce attitude, quiet patience, and indomitable survival instinct. Ages 13–up.

    Grades 8-11 Moore, whose adult novel February (2010) was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, makes her first foray into YA fiction, here, with a character-driven portrait of a contemporary teen. Flannery struggles with her family's financial situation. Her conceptual-artist mother can't make ends meet, forcing the family onto welfare and making even purchasing new textbooks a challenge. She is also on the outs with her longtime best friend Amber, who has ditched her for her new boyfriend. The one bright spot in Flannery's life comes from Tyrone, her childhood love turned school bad boythey are paired together for a class entrepreneurial project in which they have chosen to make, of all things, love potions. Could their love potion actually work? Moore is at her best when portraying the class conflict Flannery faces, particularly with regard to the more affluent Amber. She paints a deeply sympathetic portrait of Miranda, Flannery's mother, one of the story's major characters. Though the pacing can be a bit plodding at times, Moore's vivid writing and keen understanding of interpersonal dynamics bring this to life.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
