Frankie

Frankie is a whirlwind story with great characters that will grab you and take you for a ride that will end quickly, and not as you expect it to. Reading just the brief description through GoodReads or Amazon let’s you know that Frankie is angry. Not just at the people in her life, but at the circumstances that have gotten her where she is.

The plot of the book picks up quickly and moves fast. After meeting Frankie and Ethan, you can’t help but hope these two kids are kindred spirits and can develop their relationship to be the missing link that each of them seems to be missing.

The characters of the book are strong. From Frankie, and her aunt, who is just as fierce as Frankie, to the supporting characters like Ethan, and even his partner in crime. The characters are fierce, and my feeling about them continued to grow throughout the story. While angry, Frankie is easy to like, and you find yourself rooting for her, not just to find Ethan, but to get her life straightened out and back on track.

The writing style is a bit simple, but it works well for the storyline. If the language was more complex it would be difficult to feel a kinship with Frankie, and to want to learn the rest of her story.

Overall, it’s a fast read that’s enjoyable. While the ending isn’t my favorite part of the story, it works to help Frankie appreciate what she has.

And when that kid goes missing, the only person willing to help is a boy with stupidly blue eyes … and secrets of his own. Frankie's search for the truth might change her life, or cost her everything.
