Be Frank With Me

41NCoA8EuJLBe Frank With Me was on my list for a while and I was eager to read it as it had lots of great reviews. Frank is a little boy who Alice has been dispatched to take care of by her publisher boss while Mimi, the author and Frank’s mother, finishes her next great work. Mimi, made famous by her first bestseller, has not written anything in decades. The tone was reminiscent of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. To me, the writing was choppy, which was purposeful, I suppose, so you could better feel the characters, but it made the book seem shallow to me. While I mostly enjoyed reading it, I wasn’t enamored of either the writing or the storyline.
