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.

Why are they all provoking dad in this way?Freaky Green Eyes knows the answers. Freaky Green Eyes is Franky's inner self.

About the Author:

Born in upstate New York in 1938, Joyce Carol Oates has twice been nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature. She has won the National Book Award, the Pulitzer Prize, the Pen / Faulkner Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. She is the author of a number of distinguished books in several genres, all published within the past twenty-five years, and is the Roger S. Berlind Distinguished Professor of Humanities at Princeton University.

From Booklist:

Gr. 7-10. Freaky Green Eyes is the name 15-year-old Franky gives to her stronger self, the part that has to deal with the enigma that is her parents' relationship. With a nod to the O. J. Simpson case, Oates pulls readers into a fast-paced, first-person thriller that begins when Franky's mother, an artist, begins spending alone time at her cabin. It's immediately clear that her situation isn't idyllic; Franky's father, former football hero and popular sportscaster Reid Pierson, is calling the shots as to when his wife can come and go. There's no nuance to Reid's character. He's a charming, controlling bully who rules his family; should his will be thwarted, he gets physical. When Mrs. Pierson and a male friend disappear, there's also no mystery about who's behind the abduction; the clues, if that's what they are meant to be, are awkwardly dropped. Yet what could have been a predictable plot in the hands of a less-experienced writer becomes an absorbing page-turner as Franky slowly lets herself accept the violence that has always been in her family and finds the courage to stand up to her father.
