This Month’s Book: Finny

Filed under: Finny — susanbright @ 11:23 am

A 14 year old red-head named Finny. A mother that smiles and waves as drivers hunk and curse her on the highway. A father that pops Pepto Bismol tablets and manages to get a  quote or two into nearly every conversation. A man who falls asleep while playing the piano and a women who goes by the name Poplan and loves to play Jenga. These are just a few of the quirky characters in Justin Kramon’s debut novel Finny.

 Delphine Short (Finny) is not your average 14-year-old. She avoids baths, rarely combs her hair and knows exactly how to push her parents buttons. One morning, after “running away from home”, imagining how worried her parents are going to be, Finny meets Earl, who looked like “the kind of pictures you can mix and match- a man’s top half on child’s legs”, and a very unique relationship is born.

Finny is a quick, witty read, and once you start, you will not want to put it down! To learn more about the characters, check out Finny’s World, complete with sketches. You will be glad that you did!

  1. There were lots of things that I loved about this book! Finny, herself, was such a wonderful character…quirky and funny and witty. She was surrounded by such interesting people! I’m so looking forward to meeting Justin Kramon.
