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.
