In Be Frank with Me (William Morrow & Company), one boy’s honesty is shocking to the woman who’s been sent to help his mother—a famous novelist—finish her second book. Betsy Burton says, “A great read that tells home truths about family, about love, about pluck and talent, Be Frank with Me might, in the end, have too many tidied up strands and tied up pieces, but taken together they make for a thoroughly enjoyable package, frank, funny, and fetching.”
