Life Is Funny
Publisher: Puffin Books
From the outside, they're simply a group of urban teenagers. But from the inside, they're some of the most complex people you'll ever meet. There's Eric, fiercely protective of his brother Mickey-but he has a secret that holds together his past and future. Sonia, struggling to live the life of a good Muslim girl in a foreign America. Gingerbread and Keisha, who fall in love despite themselves. “Life Is Funny” strips away the defenses of one group of teenagers living today, right now-and shows their unbearably real lives.“First novelist Frank breaks new ground with a realistic, lyrical novel about eleven teens in Brooklyn now . . . Their talk is painful, rough, sexy, funny, fearful, furious, gentle. Each chapter, each vignette within a chapter, builds to its own climax, and the stories weave together to surprise you.” (“Booklist,” starred review)“An astounding first effort.” (“Kirkus Reviews,” pointer review)
