Editorial Reviews


From Publisher's WeeklyStarred Review 
Meehl draws inspiration from
Huckleberry Finn in this thought-provoking, often philosophical coming-of-age tale...both strange and wonderful...powerful and intelligent.

Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksBlue Ribbon: One of the best YA books of the Year (2012). Reviewed by Karen Coats

Many remakes of classic stories stay so close to their source texts that it seems pointless not to simply read the original. Sometimes, though, the remake gets it just right--not only adopting the plot and character arcs that made the first book great but also manipulating the style and sensibilities of the source text to refresh and renew our acquaintance with it, all while creating a story that stands alone on its merits.
You Don't Know about Me, Brian Meehl's revision of Huckleberry Finn, is one of those.

Kirkus ReviewsMeehl spins acomplex, thought-provoking plot. Readers who have grown tired of thesupernatural and the dystopic will be thrilled to sink their teeth andtheir brains into reality.

From the Author

You Don't Know About Me is a story that began with a little known yet infamous book. 

In 1884, months before Mark Twain published his classic, 
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, he was reading a non-fiction book, Thirty-three Years Among Our Wild Indians. While reading it, Twain wrote many notes in the margins. He was brainstorming a sequel to Huckleberry Finn, which would follow Huck, Tom, and Jim as they headed into Indianterritory for a "howling adventure." Twain wrote the first nine and half chapters of the Huck Finn sequel and stopped.

While Twain never finished the sequel, the book in which he mappedout the story in the margins still exists. This book, and Twain's notes, have been closed to the world ever since. When I met the man who now owns the book, and he told me the story of the literary gold mineburied in its margins, my imagination went to work.

I imagined a modern day treasure hunt for the book. But not just anytreasure hunt: a quest that would echo the epic journey Huck and Jimtook down the Mississippi River in 
Huck Finn. After all, theywere on a treasure hunt for freedom. So my modern treasure hunt becamethe story of a boy's quest for the invaluable book, and his adventure as he seeks his own freedom.
Only $5.95 a month for the first 4 months on Audible. Limited-time only.

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.
