Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson

Alice Whitley is a twenty-something administrative assistant to a publisher in New York. Her boss sends her to Bel Aire to make sure that reclusive literary legend M.M. (Mimi) Banning finishes the draft of her first new book in over twenty-years. What Alice doesn't realize is that she'll be acting as a full-time companion to Mimi's eccentric nine year old son Frank.

Frank isn't like other nine year old boys. He has a penchant for dressing as a 1930s movie star, often right down to the top hat, monocle, and pocket square. With a higher IQ than most adults, Frank displays characteristics of a child on the Autism spectrum, but that doesn't stop Alice from loving Frank as if he were her own.

Full of love and classic movie quotes, Be Frank With Me is sure to tug on your heartstrings and make you laugh at the same time.
