Be Frank with Me
|Author:||Julia Claiborne Johnson|
A funny, poignant and unforgettable novel about Frank - one of the most lovable and unusual characters you'll ever meet.
For some boys fitting in means standing out
Meet Frank - he isn't like other kids. Intrepid explorer, sartorial connoisseur; he's as strange as he is brilliant. But Frank discovers the hard way that people don't like brilliant and they hate strange. What Frank longs for - aside from a father - is a friend.
Meet Mimi - a reclusive literary legend and mother to Frank. Mimi has been holed up in her Bel Air mansion for years, keeping her secrets and hiding Frank from a cruel world. Until Alice.
Meet Alice - the level-headed young woman charged with looking after Mimi's unusual son. In so doing, Alice discovers what it really means to love someone. And she finds a part of herself she never knew was missing.
Funny, poignant and unforgettable, this novel - like Frank - is a one-off creation you'll fall in love with.
