Freaky Frank ran into my life a couple of years ago. He waved and shouted and did everything he could to make me take notice. We became fast friends, and I fell in love with him and his quirkiness from the start.
Today, I'm super excited to announce that “Freaky Frank” has a home. Muse It Up Publishing will publish the book summer of 2014. It will be part of MuseItYoung, its middle grade/tween imprint. YAY!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to share "Freaky Frank" with kids all over the world.
Here’s the skinny on Frank:
Freaky Frank has a secret. A big secret. He can read minds. And reading minds can cause problems. Like when Frank says what someone is thinking before they say it. Or answers a question before they ask it.
Sure, being a telepath can have its advantages, like reading his mom’s mind to see if she bought the Lego set he really, really, really wanted. But knowing things that you don’t want to know, knowing things that you shouldn’t know – that’s a problem with a capital P.
Adding to Frank’s problems is Nasty Nate, the sixth-grade beefy bully. Nate and his flunkies live to get others in trouble – especially Frank. Students fear them because no matter what they do, they never ever get caught. Frank hopes to change that.
But when he gets in-school suspension after being set up by Nasty Nate, he needs more than his mind to get out of the mess. He needs his friends.
