When reclusive but much loved writer M.M. (Mimi) Banning calls her agent to announce she has a manuscript in the works her loyal and faithful agent sends his assistant Alice to help her with “whatever she needs.” Alice assumes this will be help with the manuscript itself ,but she ends up being maid, chef, chauffeur and babysitter to Frank Mimi’s nine year old son. Frank loves classic movies and music and loves to dress in outfits similar to those of his movie star heroes. As you might suspect this opens up Frank to much teasing and many rough days at school. Alice does her best to respect Frank’s rules and over time she becomes truly fond of him. Alice and Frank face many curve balls on their adventures, but the always find a way to come up swinging. Frank left an empty space in my world when I finished the last page and I loved sharing his adventures good and bad. A great read.
