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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sit back...and enjoy the show. * New York Times Book Review *
Hilarious, poignant and full of unexpected gems. * Huffington Post *
Delightful. You will laugh out loud. * Slate *
Johnson's magnificently poignant, funny, and wholly original debut goes beyond page-turner status. Readers will race to the next sentence. And the next. Her charming, flawed, quietly courageous characters, each wonderfully different, demand a second reading while we impatiently await the author's second work. -- starred review * Library Journal *
Readers will find themselves captivated. * People Magazine *
Witty dialogue, irresistible characters, and a touch of mystery make this sweet debut about a quirky Hollywood family an enjoyable page-turner. * Booklist *
