About the Author

LAURIE ELIZABETH FLYNN got hooked on writing in the fourth grade, when she repeatedly bugged her teacher for more paper to write her stories on. She later went to school for Journalism, where the most important thing she learned was that she would much rather write fiction than report the news. Laurie also worked as a model, a job that took her overseas to Tokyo, Athens, and Paris and spurred her obsession with all things fashion. She now lives in London, Ontario, Canada with her husband Steve. Firsts is her first book.

Reviews

"Mercedes manages to be both tough and sympathetic, and this look at human connection, female sexuality, and stigma is welcome."--Booklist

"Debut author Flynn raises worthwhile questions about teenage sexuality and perceived promiscuity."--Publishers Weekly

"A fearless debut that dares you to question what you really know about that girl. Edgy, smart, and heartbreaking, Firsts will stay with you long after the last page." --Amanda Maciel, author of Tease

"Emotionally charged... Firsts is a powerful coming of age story that tied my heartstrings in knots. Relevant and riveting... Fans of "Easy A" will root for Mercy." --Caisey Quinn, bestselling author of Leaving Amarillo

"A brave debut. Readers will be drawn in by Mercedes and this original story that is near impossible to put down. Gutsy storytelling with both humor and heart." --Lori Goldstein, author of Becoming Jinn
