Be patient with Frances! It took about 40 pages for Frances' narration to create a picture of how she sees the world. She shares her emotions in ways that are palpable: loneliness, sadness, worry, joy, and happiness. See why we think this book is for older audiences, not for 8- and 9-year-olds.

Sweet Frances experiences many of the same issues that most kids do and many that most kids never will. A great combination for being relatable yet informative!
