Be Frank With Me

by Julia Claiborne Johnson
£7.99   paperback  Atlantic Books (Corvus) (2017)

Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson 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.
