Review

★ (Red-Starred Review)
"With propulsive pacing and an entertaining mix of witticisms, historical lessons, romance, and poignant moments, Meehl's SF adventure hits all the right notes. Believable characters infuse energy into each scene--readers will eagerly await future installments." - Publishers Weekly 

"Meehl...has crafted a sparkling tale from both unique and time-tested elements. His layered characterization unfolds wonderfully...A vibrant time-travel tale that offers inventive storytelling along with sports, romance, and secrets." Kirkus Reviews

"Characters bump up against history and each other's sharp edges in this thrilling, deftly related novel. Brian Meehl's Blowback '07 is a compelling young-adult time-travel adventure that vividly portrays the overlooked history of modern American football. This gripping story infuses history with humanity, not just in its depiction of football as a noble game, but in its resurrection of those who played and shaped it.

Meehl's deft characterization and gift for infusing historical facts with emotional depth and motivation makes for a consuming read. ... Meehl's world thrills in the first book of this promising new trilogy." Foreword Reviews

"This fun, young adult time-travel adventure mixes music, football, romance, and magic ... Brian Meehl's easily accessible writing style contains plenty of winning humor ... Meehl has delivered an entertaining YA story." BlueInk Reviews

"Funny and original, with enduring characters. Perfect for football season." - IndieReader


 (Red-Starred Review)
"In this time-bending first novel in a planned trilogy, Meehl creates a fascinating dichotomy between past and present. North High junior Arky Jongler-Jinks, a sharp-witted cross-country runner, is best friends with his high school's star quarterback, Matt Grinnell, and defensive back, Danny Bender. Arky's twin sister, Iris, prefers making music--especially playing an unusual antique English horn that her mother left to her in secret, before vanishing--to sports and partying. The extent of the woodwind's powers are revealed when Iris's playing accidentally sends Matt back to the year 1907. Sports, music, and science collide as Iris and Arky attempt to retrieve Matt while wondering if their mother could be found, too. Meanwhile, Matt must adjust to his new century (and playing for the Carlisle Indian School's football team, coached by Pop Warner) and figure out a way to get back to "hometime." 
 
With propulsive pacing and an entertaining mix of witticisms, historical lessons, romance, and poignant moments, Meehl's SF adventure hits all the right notes. Believable characters infuse energy into each scene--readers will eagerly await future installments. Ages 12-up." - Publishers Weekly

Brian’s most recent novel is BLOWBACK '94, the “hugely enjoyable and fast-paced” finale in his critically acclaimed BLOWBACK TRILOGY. The kickoff book in the trilogy, BLOWBACK ’07, received a coveted red-star review from Publishers Weekly.

His award-winning books include a bestselling comedic riff on vampires, SUCK IT UP, OUT OF PATIENCE (Junior Library Guild Selection), and YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME (Blue Ribbon from the Bulletin for the Center for Children’s Books).

Once upon a time, Brian worked for Jim Henson’s Muppets and puppeteered the gamut from a young pup, Barkley on SESAME STREET, to the Dying Master in Henson’s cult classic, THE DARK CRYSTAL. After taking up the pen, Brian wrote for kids’ shows like THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS and BETWEEN THE LIONS, winning three Emmys along the way.
