    Put M.T. Anderson, Cory Doctorow, Andrew Smith, and Hunter S. Thompson in a blender and you will get Sean McGinty’s brilliantly funny debut. It is a coming-of-age novel like no other. McGinty has expertly crafted what is sure to become a cult classic for the tech generation.

    Aaron O’Faolain is more than a ne’er-do-well, and as the protagonist of Sean McGinty’s fearless debut, he is unforgettable. The End of FUN is so fresh, so smart, and so chock-damn-full of heart, I couldn’t bear when it was over. Nope. I flipped right back to the beginning. I do believe I found a soul mate.

    The End of FUN is an edgy, sassy and addictive novel that had me smiling from the start. FUN is the latest virtual reality craze and everyone who’s anyone is hooked up. But FUN may be more dangerous than anyone suspects. Seventeen-year-old Aaron has decided to re-join the real world, but unhooking from FUN may be harder than he thought. Jump on this roller coaster ride of mystery, romance, and high-tech laughs!
