Be Frank with Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson
Reclusive author Mimi Banning is writing her first book in decades in her Bel Air mansion. Her publisher wants to send an assistant to keep her on track and along comes Alice Whitley who right away becomes less of an assistant and more of full-time caregiver to the literary legends nine-year-old son “a boy with the wit of Noël Coward, the wardrobe of a 1930s movie star, and very little in common with his fellow fourth graders.”
As she gets to know Frank, Alice becomes consumed with finding out who his father is, how his gorgeous “piano teacher and itinerant male role model” Xander fits into the Banning family equation—and whether Mimi will ever finish that book.
