Publisher's Summary

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. And Gingerbread and Keisha, who fall in love despite themselves.Life Is Funny strips away the defenses of one group of teenagers living today, right now - and shows their unbearably real lives.

"Frank has penned a high-intensity, multicultural, multidimensional teen reading experience that will challenge and change those who open it. These are real teens in real time. Be prepared for them to rock your world." (Amazon.com review)

The expert narration pops this magniffice t story into your minds eye

I am in love with this poetry. I want to hear Quincy Bernstine read ER Frank over and over. Though I would listen to anything she does.
