13 May 2012 Freaky Fast Frankie Joe

Freaky Fast Frankie Joe is Lutricia Clifton’s first novel, and I can’t wait for more from her. In fact, I’m adding this middle grade novel to my Recommended List for Children’s Writers. Its characters are as richly drawn and likeable as those in Clementine, and its subject matter is relevant—the parent/child relationship, what makes a family, the value of friends, responsibility—and it does it all without preaching or descending into preciousness.
