3.5/5 StarsThe only thing word I can think of to describe this is "cute." It was a great read for a day where I just wanted to chill out. There wasn't a lot of depth to it, you didn't have to really think about what you were reading - which is not a bad thing. The Boy Recession had an interesting plot that the author pulled off very well. The characters were relatable and funny. This novel had some super fun scenes that had me giggling! I would definitely read other YA contemporary works by Ms. Meaney.Letting my sister borrow it now!
