9780064473484: Freaky Green Eyes

New novel from the bestselling author of BIG MOUTH AND UGLY GIRL.

To the outside world, Franky Pierson is a lucky girl with a charmed life. With a celebrity dad – TV sports commentator, Reid Pierson – and beautiful artist mother, living in a state-of-the-art designer home and wanting for nothing, their world could be described as perfect. And Franky could almost believe this is true – after all, her father keeps on telling her that it is and she would never disagree with him. But in that case, why does is her mother spending time away from home? And how come her step-brother is barely speaking, and her little sister won't stop whining? Why are they all provoking dad in this way?

Freaky Green Eyes knows the answers. Freaky Green Eyes is Franky's inner self. Only she dares to look at Franky's life and dare to suggest that all is not as it should be in the Pierson household. But is she strong enough to do anything about it – before something really terrible happens?

A really compelling and eye-opening novel that keeps you turning pages from beginning to end.

Review:

“The relationship between Ursula and Matt grows, credibly and compellingly, against a convincing high school backdrop. Readers will relate to the pressures these two experience, both at school and from their parents, and be gratified by their ability to emerge the wiser.”
Publisher’s Weekly

Praise for Joyce Carol Oates’ writing:

"Miss Oates is one of our most audaciously talented writers. Her gift is so large, her fluency in different genres – poems, short stories, novels, essays – so great, that at times she seems to challenge the ability of readers to keep up with her."
Erica Jong

“One of the greatest writers of our time."
John Gardner
