Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson

I've had a bit of a shortage of books to post about.  Too many average reads.  But Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson made the cut.

The book is an entertaining, provoking read.  Frank Banning is a very different kind of character. Think the hero of the Rosie Project aged 9 and you might be partly on the right track.

I had to keep right on reading – even though a few aspects of the story required a bit too much suspension of disbelief for me.  Frank's mother is not someone that I could relate to at all.

This is a debut novel – and as such is an amazing feat.  Hopefully Julia will do some more.


  1. I love your book reviews!

  2. I'm not sure what the Rosie Project is (will have to google it) but the cover of this one looks intriguing.
