What does you in—brain or heart?

Frannie asks herself this question when, a week before she turns fifteen, her dad dies, leaving her suddenly deprived of the only human being on planet Earth she feels understands her. Frannie struggles to make sense of a world that no longer seems safe, a world in which one moment can turn things so thoroughly for the worse. She discovers an elegant wooden box with an inscription: Frances Anne 1000. Inside, Frannie finds one thousand hand-painted and -carved puzzle pieces. She wonders if her father had a premonition of his death and finished her birthday present early. Feeling broken into pieces herself, Frannie slowly puts the puzzle together, bit by bit. But as she works, something remarkable begins to happen: She is catapulted into an ancient foreign landscape, a place suspended in time where she can discover her father as he was B.F.—before Frannie.

Delia Ephron makes you laugh and makes you cry—often at the same time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I'm A Bit Confused I read this book when I was probably 12 years old, and it seemed boring, and confusing. After reading the blurb above, it seems as though it could be a very powerful book, however I am then just confused as to who the age group is for this piece. It seemed like a very slow novel to me, which I am personally just not a fan of!
