Description:

From the outside, they're simply a group of urban teenagers. But from the inside, they're some of the most complex people you'll ever meet. There's Eric, fiercely protective of his brother Mickey-but he has a secret that holds together his past and future. Sonia, struggling to live the life of a good Muslim girl in a foreign America. Gingerbread and Keisha, who fall in love despite themselves. Life Is Funnystrips away the defenses of one group of teenagers living today, right now-and shows their unbearably real lives. "First novelist Frank breaks new ground with a realistic, lyrical novel about eleven teens in Brooklyn now . . . Their talk is painful, rough, sexy, funny, fearful, furious, gentle. Each chapter, each vignette within a chapter, builds to its own climax, and the stories weave together to surprise you." (Booklist, starred review) "An astounding first effort." (Kirkus Reviews, pointer review)

Acclaimed author E.R Frank is a clinical social worker who has practiced in Manhatten, Brooklyn and New Jersey. Through the course of her work, she has known many Americas, and they have become her inspiration. Of the characters in her powerful novel 'America Is Me', E.R Frank says, that they are the result of her cumulative experiences and imaginings - they are fictional in everything except spirit - 'they could easily have walked through my office doors, but instead, they have settled in my heart'. America Is Me is her first book for Simon & Schuster UK. She lives with her husband in Montclair, New Jersey.
