From a major new talent, author E.R Frank, comes a stunning and complex novel about America, a boy who got lost in the system from an early age. A strong, hard-hitting narrative that deals with a shattered past and the harsh, and often tragic realities of life. "I'm in America, and America is in me" America is a boy, a boy who gets lost easy and is not worth the trouble of finding. By the age of fifteen, America has already spent his life nowhere and wound up a nobody. Abandoned by his natural mother and separated from his foster mother, America is a runaway living for months on the streets and in Central Park, a patient at the Applegate Residential treatment Facility to the north of New York City, and finally now at Ridgeway Hospital where he meets psychiatrist Dr. B. But Dr. B takes the trouble to find him. With abiding care and gentle coaxing he gradually draws America's story from him, caring more than America does himself about whether he lives or dies. Slowly America learns to deal with and come to terms with his past, until ultimately he begins to feel that America is found.

About the Author:

Acclaimed author E.R Frank is a clinical social worker who has practiced in Manhatten, Brooklyn and New Jersey. Through the course of her work, she has known many Americas, and they have become her inspiration. Of the characters in her powerful novel 'America Is Me', E.R Frank says, that they are the result of her cumulative experiences and imaginings - they are fictional in everything except spirit - 'they could easily have walked through my office doors, but instead, they have settled in my heart'. America Is Me is her first book for Simon & Schuster UK. She lives with her husband in Montclair, New Jersey.
