in the hallways! Silence for assembly!
Frankie doesn't know how she'll manage, because constantly talking
is how she copes. So when she gets the chance to compete in
a Battle of the Bands contest, Frankie couldn't be more
excited. Except, to have a band, you need to have band members. And
to have band members, you need to be good at making friends...
Can Frankie learn to find her voice and stand out?
A unique perspective on Autism, told with humour and
Brought to life with glorious colour artwork in a distinctive
