“Absorbing, electrifying, and achingly relatable. Frannie and Tru is a book with a pulse.” Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Perfect for fans of Prep and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Frannie and Tru is a dazzling YA debut about a transformative summer in the life of a girl whose idol is not what he seems.

Frannie has always idolized her cousin Tru. At seventeen, Tru is charismatic, rich, charming—everything fifteen-year-old Frannie wants to be, and everything she’s not. So when Frannie overhears her parents saying that after a bad coming-out experience Tru will be staying with them in Baltimore for the summer, Frannie is excited and desperate to impress him. But as Frannie gets swept up in Tru’s worldly way of life, she starts to worry that it may all be a mask Tru wears to hide a dark secret. And if Tru isn’t the person Frannie thought he was, what does that mean for the new life she has built with him?

Confronting issues of race, class, and sexuality, Karen Hattrup weaves a powerful coming-of-age story that’s at once timeless and immediate, sharply observed, and recognizable to anyone who has ever loved the idea of a person more than the reality.

Review:

A Junior Library Guild Selection (;)

“Absorbing, electrifying, and achingly relatable. Frannie and Tru is a book with a pulse.” (Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda)

“Hattrup’s confrontation with white privilege and Frannie’s misguided assumptions surrounding social class and sexual orientation avoid easy platitudes, creating insights ripe for further exploration.” (Publishers Weekly)

“[A] character-rich work of literary fiction...Tru is endlessly intriguing, and his evolving relationship with Frannie is wholly believable and emotionally engaging.” (Booklist)

“An honest, revealing, coming-of-age story...will appeal to a wide-range of readers. Frannie’s voice is an authentic mix of sincerity and naiveté as she struggles with self confidence and first love; family conflict; and, as she is educated in the politics of identity, race, class, and sexuality.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“Fans of Lockhart’s The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks (BCCB 3/08) will appreciate the probing complexity of a working-class white girl finding her feet and her courage.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Hattrup beautifully illustrates issues of privilege and prejudice in her debut. Thought-provoking!” (RT Book Reviews)

“Ideal for fans of E. Lockhart and cool, atmospheric narratives.” (The Horn Book)

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up—Frannie, 15, is excited that her older cousin Truman is coming to stay with her family for the summer. She hasn't seen him in a while, but she imagines all the things they'll do, things she'll say, and how amazing her once boring summer will be. Unfortunately, nothing works out quite the way she hoped; Tru doesn't seem to care about her or her older twin brothers. Frannie persists, and Tru starts to include her in some of his outings, and eventually she learns his secret. She is happy to get out and do something since she'll be starting at a more diverse public magnet school in the fall and worries that she won't fit in. The protagonist is self-absorbed, and as the summer progresses, her perceptions of her family and friends change. Frannie is the only fully fleshed-out character, but as she grows more aware of the world around her, the other characters become more well-rounded. Mentions of underage drinking, smoking, and marijuana use are peppered throughout and are organic to the tale. The story's pace slowly picks up about one-third of the way through the book and remains steady. VERDICT An additional purchase for coming-of-age YA collections.—Natalie Struecker, Atlantic Public Library, IA
