About this title

Synopsis:

Frankie Parsons is twelve going on old man, an apparently sensible, talented boy with a drumbeat of worrying questions steadily gaining volume in his head: Are the smoke alarm batteries flat? Does the cat, and therefore the rest of the family, have worms? Will bird flu strike and ruin life as we know it? Is the kidney-shaped spot on his chest actually a galloping cancer? Only Ma takes seriously his catalogue of persistent queries. But it is Ma who is the cause of the most worrying question of all, the one that Frankie can never bring himself to ask. Then the new girl arrives at school and has questions of her own: relentless, unavoidable questions. So begins the unravelling of Frankie Parsons' carefully controlled world.

Review:

"A most memorable and satisfying read enhanced by wonderful, witty writing. Highest recommendation." (Reading Time)

"In Kate de Goldi's sensitive, vital and hilarious novel, Frankie and the reader walk hand in hand through pages that gleam with hope and humour." (Ursula Dubosarsky)

"This is a little gem of a novel. It is really unique and quirky." (Amazon)

"A truly special book. Kate de Goldi's dazzling writing will break your heart and make you wonder, marvel and laugh all at once." (Agnes Nieuwenhuizen)

"Frankie Parsons is not your average Kiwi kid. He's 12, but he frets – every disease is lurking, the cat could have worms, and the smoke alarm may be out of batteries. And his mother hasn't gone outside for years. Frankie's life begins to spin out of control when he meets Sydney, the new girl at school. Australian narrator Stig Wemyss gives a superb performance. His tone and enthusiasm maximize the humor and are pitch-perfect for voicing kids. Frankie and his cricket-mad best friend, Gigs, have their own invented language, which Wemyss makes believable and funny. Everyone inhabiting Frankie's world is a joy to hang out with, thanks to Wemyss, especially Frankie's crazy fat aunties who come to dinner twice a month." (AudioFile Magazine)
