APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
When you’re 13, life can feel tough, but Frankie is carrying a lot more on her plate than a normal teenager. She’s a carer to her chronically ill mum, is a target for the mean girls at school, hates her dad’s new girlfriend and is struggling to understand her sexuality. Charming next-door neighbour and best friend Sam is clearly in love with her, but her feelings don’t reciprocate. Instead Frankie seems to be falling for the one person she was sure she hated—Sally. Full of relatable moments, Love Frankie is an accessible coming-of-age novel which centres on the LGBTQ+ experience of a first relationship. Jacqueline Wilson does what she does best by creating multi-dimensional characters in a story of love, loss and friendship.
