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. He's as strange as he is brilliant. But Frank discovers the hard way that people don't like brilliant and they hate strange. Intrepid explorer, sartorial connoisseur, odd duck with great plumage; what Frank longs for - aside from a father - is a friend.

Meet Mimi Banning - 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 - a level-headed young woman who finds herself thrust into the Banning household, 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.
