Editorial Reviews

Review

“Includes well-drawn characters, page-turning action, and lively prose peppered with dry humor and potty history.”—The Bulletin, Recommended

“Featuring likeably human main characters, a colorful supporting cast, memorably off-beat set pieces and a credible small-town atmosphere, this debut should leave plenty of readers flushed with laughter.”—Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

The first characters Brian Meehl brought to life were not in books. They lived on TV and movie screens in the form of Muppets on "Sesame Street" and in Jim Henson films, including roles in the cult classic, "The Dark Crystal." Shifting his hand from puppets to pen, Meehl won two Emmys while writing for PBS children's television shows such as "The Magic School Bus" and "Between the Lions."
 
He then returned to his first love: books. Meehl has published four novels (3 YA, 1 middle grade) with Random House: Out of Patience, Suck It Up, Suck It Up and Die, and You Don't Know About Me. The first was a Junior Library Guild Selection, the last won a Blue Ribbon from the Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books, while two of them garnered starred PW reviews and spots on numerous state readings lists. He also published one of his oft-optioned screenplays as an adult novella, Pastime.
 
More recently, Meehl has been writing Blowback, a YA trilogy harmonizing time-travel, historical fiction sports and romance. For more, visit brianmeehl.com.
